The most expensive movie on Netflix, ‘The Electric State,’ is a science fiction film directed by the Russo Brothers, known for their work on ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and ‘Endgame.’ The film will cost $320 million, marking it as the platform’s priciest project to date. This move comes as part of Netflix’s strategy to dominate the sci-fi genre amidst the ongoing streaming war, where Apple TV+ currently holds the lead. ‘The Electric State’ stands out among Netflix’s upcoming projects. The story revolves around an orphaned teenager, played by Millie Bobby Brown, who journeys through a retro-futuristic American West with a mysterious robot and an eccentric drifter to find her younger brother. The cast also includes Chris Pratt and Stanley Tucci, making it one of Netflix’s most anticipated releases set for late 2024. The film expands its stellar cast with Giancarlo Esposito, Ke Huy Quan, Jason Alexander, Billy Bob Thornton, Anthony Mackie, Brian Cox, and Jenny Slate. Based on Simon Stålenhag’s graphic novel, the adaptation maintains a unique retro-futuristic aesthetic. The project has undergone significant development changes, initially set for Universal before Netflix took over in 2022, with filming completing in early 2023 and reshoots in 2024.

Wacom has introduced Yuify, a blockchain-based service designed to help digital artists and photographers claim and manage the ownership of their work. Available as a plugin for Adobe Photoshop and soon for Clip Paint Studio and Rebelle, Yuify allows artists to record their work on the blockchain, ensuring control over the legal use of their images through licensing. In an interview at the VFX Festival, Wacom CEO Nobutaka Ide emphasized that Yuify is not about exploiting artists like NFTs but about providing a secure method for artists to authenticate and manage their portfolios. The immutable nature of blockchain technology and self-sovereign identity (SSI) make it ideal for this purpose. Yuify is compatible with various drawing tablets, and artists can sign up for the beta trial to start using the service.
