The Week That Was: Entertainment & TV (15/06/18)
18th June 2018
This week we discuss the hot topics from the world of Entertainment & TV. Check out the most talked about trends and discover campaigns that are creating an impact.
The City that Shaped Bowie
The Brooklyn Museum, NY partnered with Spotify for an impressive takeover of a Brooklyn subway station, to promote the new Bowie exhibition at the museum. The relevance… this was Bowie’s neighbourhood and known as the city that shaped him. The media installation is about as Insta-friendly as you can get and the perfect teaser for the full exhibition which features 400 objects from the Starman’s personal archive.
Netflix defines ‘Creepy’
It’s a sad day when a company has to produce guidelines on what is and isn’t acceptable behaviour at the workplace, but it seems Netflix has chosen to tackle the #MeToo issue head-on by laying guidelines for staff. Although not officially confirmed by the content studio, an on-set source has said claimed Netflix has been training production staff on identifying and avoiding unwanted behaviour. Good to see them taking responsibility as employers.
Dad’s Army Get a Stamp of Approval
Classic British comedy, Dad’s Army, celebrates its 50th anniversary with a set of collectable Royal Mail stamps featuring characters and classic quotes. A simple yet effective PR stunt which appeals perfectly to old fans of the series.
Dumbo Rolls into Town
The teaser trailer for Disney’s next live action reimagining landed this week, with Dumbo certainly giving us all the #feels. Directed by Tim Burton, it’s sure to be a visual treat, but leaves us asking… where’s Johnny Depp? We can wait to see how the entertainment giant builds the buzz for this release over the coming year.
