Stormy Daniels Documentary Being Launched by Blue Ant Media newsbhunt



“Stormy,” a documentary about former porn star Stormy Daniels, has been picked up by Blue Ant Studios for international distribution.

The launch was announced on Monday, the same day that former U.S. president Donald Trump begins a criminal trial in New York for allegedly covering up hush money payments to Daniels.

“Stormy,” offered as two one-hour episodes or a two-hour feature, is produced by Emmy-nominated producers Erin Lee Carr (“I Love You,” “Now Die: The Commonwealth v. Michelle Carter”) and producer-director, Sarah Gibson (“Orgasm Inc: The Story of One Taste”) who previously made the documentary, “Britney vs. Spears.”

The film is executive produced by Judd Apatow of Apatow Productions (“George Carlin’s American Dream,” “The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling”) alongside Sara Bernstein and Meredith Kaulfers from Imagine Documentaries (“The Super Models,” “Judy Blume Forever”). Emelia Brown also serves as producer. “Stormy” is currently streaming on Peacock in the U.S.


“The Gospel of the Beast,” directed by Sheron Dayoc, was named winner of the Golden Star Award for best Southeast Asian Film at the first edition of the Ho Chi Minh City International Film Festival. The festival ran April 6-13.

Nicole Midori Woodford’s “Last Shadow At First Light” was the winner of multiple awards including the jury prize, best cinematography best screenplay and best visual effects.

Malaysia’s Chia Chee Sum, took the award for best director with “Oasis of Now,” while Vietnam’s Ti Thi Diu, won the best actress award for her role in the picture. Singapore-produced drama “Wonderland” earned awards for best actor (Mark Lee) and best supporting actor (Peter Yu). The best supporting actress award went to Rawipa Srisanguan for “Solids by the Seashore.”


NetEase, a leading Chinese gaming firm, will reinstate “World of Warcraft” and other video games from Microsoft-owned Blizzard Entertainment in mainland China, the companies said in a joint statement last week.

The two companies broke off their 15-year relationship in 2023 after an acrimonious dispute.
“After a year of negotiations, Blizzard and NetEase are pleased to align on a path forward to once again serve players in mainland China,” the companies said in a post on NetEase Games’ official Weibo account.

The new deal will see the return of “World of Warcraft” and “Hearthstone,” as well as other titles in the Warcraft, Overwatch, Diablo and StarCraft universes, according to the statement.


The Taiwan International Documentary Festival, organized by the Taiwan Film and Audiovisual Institute and scheduled from May 10-19, is poised to unveil treasures of Taiwan’s cinematic history. The festival’s “Reel Taiwan” section will spotlight Taiwan’s largest experimental documentary project to date, “Floating Islands,” a 12-film series of shorts produced between 1999 and 2000 by the Firefly Image Company and producer Zero Chou. They have now been digitized.

“Looking back now, we realize how much these works challenged traditional documentary aesthetics at that time. Additionally, we hope that this retrospective will inspire our audience to reconsider the relationship between the ‘main island’ and the ‘outlying islands’,” said TIDF programmer Chen Wanling. Highlights include; Chen Singing’s “Who’s Fishing?,” delving into the sovereignty dispute between China, Taiwan and Japan over the Diaoyu or Senkaku Islands; Shen Ko-shang‘s “Silent Delta,” which focuses on three northern islands; and Chou’s “Before the Radiation” on Wuqiu Island residents’ resistance against a nuclear waste storage site.

Additionally, in its long-standing Taiwan Spectrum section, themed as Untitled Reel: Amateur, Small-Gauge Films, and Others,” the festival will play a selection of amateur films made between 1920 and the 1970s.
