    Netflix apologizes to Lac-Megantic for using rail disaster footage in 'Bird Box'

    MONTREAL — Netflix is apologizing to the people of Lac-Megantic after actual footage of the 2013 rail disaster that devastated the town was used in dramas on the streaming service. The company says it had not been aware of the source of the footage used briefly in the hit movie "Bird Box" and the series "Travelers." The images show the explosion that killed 47 people when an oil-laden train derailed in the middle of downtown. "We regret any pain caused to the Lac-Megantic community and have expressed this directly to Mayor Julie Morin," the letter addressed to Quebec Culture Minister Nathalie Roy said. Dated Monday, it is signed by Corie Wright, Netflix Inc. director of public policy. The company says it will take steps to avoid use of images from Lac-Megantic or any similar stock footage in future productions. But it says that since use of stock footage is so widespread on Netflix, it cannot make changes to "finished content." Roy wrote to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings last Friday asking that the footage be removed from the dramatic productions and used only in documentaries. She said it was unacceptable to use human tragedies for entertainment purposes. Netflix has refused to remove the footage from "Bird Box," despite appeals from Roy and Morin. The producers of "Travelers" have said they are working replace the Lac-Megantic images in their show. In an emailed statement, Roy welcomed Netflix's apology and its recognition of its mistake. "However, we find it regrettable that the company is maintaining its decision not to remove the images of this tragedy from the film 'Bird Box,' when it has already accepted to do so for another of its series, which in our eyes is illogical," she said.

    Screen Actors Guild slams film academy for Oscar tactics

    NEW YORK — The Screen Actors Guild on Monday called on the film academy to stop trying to prevent stars from appearing on award shows before the Oscars. In an unusually critical statement, SAG-AFTRA said it has received multiple reports that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is pressuring certain actors to appear only at next month's Academy Awards. Several award shows occur before that, including the guild's own Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 27. "This self-serving intimidation of SAG-AFTRA members is meant to limit their opportunities to be seen and honour the work of their fellow artists throughout the season. Actors should be free to accept any offer to participate in industry celebrations," SAG-AFTRA said in a statement. "The apparent attempt by the academy to keep our members from presenting on their own awards show is utterly outrageous and unacceptable." "We call on the academy to cease this inappropriate action," it concluded. Messages left with the academy were not immediately returned Monday. Following Kevin Hart's departure, the Academy Awards remain without a host. With less than six weeks to go before the Feb. 24 broadcast, they appear likely to remain that way. To compensate, the film academy has apparently sought to populate the telecast with starry presenters. One reported gambit has been to unite the "Avengers" cast at the Oscars. The open feud with SAG-AFTRA is only the latest headache for the film academy. It is seeking to revamp this year's Oscars telecast after ratings fell steeply in 2017. The academy earlier scuttled plans for a new best popular film category after a backlash. ___ Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/jakecoyleAP Jake Coyle, The Associated Press

    ‘Family Guy’ roasts Donald Trump and Twitter reactions are split

    In the latest Family Guy , the writers savagely went after President Trump in the second of a two-part episode centered around Peter and Trump. Family Guy has taken shots at Trump in the past. During their 2016 Emmy campaign , the show mocked then candidate Trump as a “dumb loudmouth.” On Sunday night, Family Guy hit on Trump’s hair and his hands, and even took a swing at his finances. “Billionaire? Please. You're worth $700 mil on the high side,” Peter said to Trump. “And most of that is borrowed or tied up and underwater. That's why you ain't releasin' your taxes, Trump. You're cash poor!” Fan reaction on Twitter was split on the episode. Those who don’t like Trump loved it , while those who like Trump didn’t find it so funny . And First Lady Melania Trump probably falls into that second group as the writers went after her as well. After Peter catches Trump attempting to assault Meg, he says to Trump, “What would your third wife, the softcore girl-on-girl porn lady think about this? Or the actual porn star your lawyer paid hush money to?” Nobody in Trump’s orbit was safe. Vice President Mike Pence , Press Secretary Sarah Sanders , and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell all made appearances as well in very unflattering ways. And the writers couldn’t help but take a shot at Trump’s son in law, and one of his closest advisors, Jared Kushner . Talking to Meg about a makeover, Ivanka Trump , Kushner’s wife, said, “When I’m done with you, you’ll be pretty enough to marry an Orthodox Jewish son of a felon who’s too stupid to get into Harvard the normal way.” Meg Replies, “And whose voice is way higher that you thought it would be?” Right then, Kushner walks in and in a child’s voice says, “Hi, honey. Ready for dinner?” Trump’s not the only president to take jabs from Family Guy . In the past, they’ve mocked Presidents Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.
