It has been known for a while that Human Head Studios have been working on a sequel to Prey and carrying the obvious name of Prey 2. The publisher of the game is Bethesda.With no news appearing about development for a number of months though, no one was quite sure if the game was still going to see a release this year, or if it had in fact been canceled. Bethesda quashed fears of a cancellation by announcing yesterday via its blog that Prey 2 has simply suffered a delay because “game development has not progressed satisfactorily this past year.”That seems unusual seeing as Human Head is an experienced team, and it now turns out Bethesda may not have given us the complete picture. Shacknews has been told by an unnamed source that no one at Human Head has actually been working on the game since last November.Apparently, the studio was not happy with the publishing contract Bethesda handed them. Work ceased last year until the contract could be renegotiated and a number of staff lost their jobs simply because there was no work to do. Bethesda seemed willing to talk things through, but then ceased communication in January, leaving both the game and the studio in limbo. For Bethesda’s part, they are sticking to their original statement of progress not being satisfactory and won’t say anymore than that.What is clear now is the game won’t launch this year as it is at least 6 months behind schedule. Bethesda’s breaking off of communication also suggests it may be trying to get another developer to continue development of the title. Canceling it at this stage would incur some pretty big losses for the publisher no doubt.Read more at Shacknews and the Bethesda Blog
L’iPhone et China Telecom main dans la mainApple renforce sa présence en Chine en s’alliant avec un second opérateur dans ce pays, comptant presque un milliard d’abonnés. Jusqu’alors, l’exclusivité des ventes d’iPhone se faisait par China Unicom, qui compte 43 millions de clients. Mais le marché chinois est si dense, qu’Apple ne peut se contenter d’un seul opérateur. Ses concurrents locaux, ZTE et Huawei, ne cessent de lui grappiller des parts de marché (selon Gartner, au 4ème trimestre 2011, ZTE est passé à la quatrième place, devant Apple). Le prix du smartphone de l’américain est sans doute en cause, représentant deux mois de salaire pour un chinois, or selon les analystes, il ne devrait pas dépasser 70% du salaire mensuel moyen. Alors, pour continuer sa progression, Apple vient de signer avec le troisième opérateur du pays, China Telecom (39 millions d’abonnés), pour pouvoir distribuer son iPhone 4S dès le 9 mars prochain. Mais cela suffira-t-il pour regagner du terrain? Surtout que la marque à la pomme ne détient toujours pas d’accord avec le leader des télécommunications China Mobile, qui compte plus de 600 millions d’abonnés.

TACOMA — Nearly four-dozen people demonstrated outside the federal Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma to protest deportations, and about five locked themselves together to block an entrance.The demonstration started about 6:30 a.m. Monday. Police spokeswoman Loretta Cool says it broke up about 9:30 a.m. when the people blocking the street were asked to leave.Cool says one woman who tried to stop a bus from departing was briefly detained and cited for disorderly conduct. She told KOMO Radio her husband was being deported Monday.Organizers with the Not One More Deportation campaign complain the Obama administration has deported more people than the previous Bush administration.Demonstrators carried “Not one more” signs. Another said, “Please don’t send my daddy back home. I need him here.”
Another potential player has been identified in the continuing saga of the Pearson Air Museum.The Port of Vancouver confirmed Thursday that it’s been asked about what role it might play in the future of the conflict-courting air museum. But whether it’s a viable option is another question.“We have been approached by different folks in the community who would like to see us be part of Pearson,” said Theresa Wagner, a spokeswoman for the port.She characterized the discussions as preliminary, but added that such a move is a possibility because some ports have general aviation airports. The city owns Pearson Field with the exception of a portion of the runway, for which it has a long-term lease with the National Park Service.Securing additional sources of revenue would allow the port to make investments in other community projects, Wagner said. However, a deal to land a potash export facility at the port, which would have generated significant revenue, was recently called off. And it’s unclear whether another major generator of cash — a proposal to build an oil-by-rail transfer terminal at the port — will receive approval from state regulators, Wagner said.“We like the idea of doing good things, but it is challenging for us to consider taking it on,” she said of the Pearson conversations. “It takes resources, and it’s not something we do right now.”

Claire Polosak is the first lady to be an umpire in a men’s ODITwitter/ICCClaire Polosak, remember the name! Why should you? Because she was part of a truly historic moment of cricket on Saturday, April 27 at Windhoek, Namibia. As she crossed the boundary line onto the field of play with her male colleague, the lady from Australia became the first woman to officiate in a men’s one-day international game.The match, a World Cricket League Division 2 final contest between Namibia and Oman would not have otherwise garnered too much attention. But with Polosak’s ground-breaking appearance, doors have been opened to more such instances of female umpire’s in men’s game.Importance of the eventWhile in other sports such as hockey and football, on-field referees are usually of the same gender as the players, there is no imaginable reason why a woman should face any more difficulty than a man in umpiring a game of men’s cricket.It wasn’t the first time, though, when Polosak was on-field for a match played by male cricketers. She had earlier umpired in a men’s game of the Australian domestic circuit as far back as 2017. Another distinction she already possessed was being part of the first female pair of umpires to officiate in a professional match in Australia. It was during a Women’s Big Bash League game and her partner in crime, or rather preventing crime, on that occasion was Eloise Sheridan. Polosak and Sheridan made history by umpiring during a WBBL matchTwitter/Cricket AustraliaPolosak’s reactionSpeaking on her unprecedented achievement, Polosak was conscious of her role in furthering women’s position in the officialdom of cricket. “I am thrilled to be the first woman to stand in a men’s ODI and how far I have come as an umpire. It really is important to promote women umpires and there’s no reason why females can’t umpire in cricket. It’s about breaking down barriers, creating awareness so more females can come into the role,” she was quoted as saying by the ICC.Polosak also thanked all those bodies and people who helped her along. “It’s really to do with the partners you work with all the way through. Right from my local association – NSW umpires and scorers – as well as parents and my partner, Evans, my husband, without whose support there’s no way I’d be here today.”This achievement of Polosak may have had to wait longer if the ICC had not given ODI status to Oman recently. Namibia already possesses ODI status and has made appearances in previous World Cups. We can now look forward to the day when a woman would be present on-field during an international contest involving top cricket playing nations.
An employee walks next to broken glass at a damaged branch of Banco do Brasil after a gang caused an explosion in a part of the bank in an attempted robbery, in Guararema. Photo: ReutersMore than two dozen heavily-armed men stormed into the center of Guararema early on a recent morning, rousing the Brazilian town’s residents with the sound of broken glass, explosions – and then gunshots.Brandishing high-powered rifles, wearing bullet-proof vests and carrying several kilos of dynamite, the gang pulled up in front of the town’s main police station. It then set upon an adjoining branch of Banco do Brasil, shattering its windows and doors with crowbars.In a coordinated 3 a.m. attack, police said, other gang members hit a Banco Santander Brasil branch two blocks away. They detonated the dynamite in an attempt to blow up ATM machines and vaults in both banks.Such attacks have become commonplace in Brazil: Last year, an average of two banks or ATM machines were robbed every day, mainly in small towns without a major police presence.The spoils can be substantial.Each ATM has four boxes storing up to 2,700 bills apiece, meaning one cash machine stuffed with 100-real bills can yield up to 1 million reais ($263,000). Bank robbers skilled with dynamite – working quickly – will often blow up several ATMs at each bank or go directly for their vaults.To combat the robberies, Brazil’s banks have invested in anti-theft technology, ranging from specialized ATMs to facial recognition cameras. When that fails or the costs become prohibitive, they have simply closed branches; as a result, some towns no longer have easy access to financial services in a country that already has a higher proportion of “unbanked” residents than either China or India.The rash of bank robberies reflects just one way in which widespread violence is taking a toll on Latin America’s largest economy, pushing frustrated Brazilians to elect President Jair Bolsonaro in October on a promise to crack down on crime.”Crime seeks opportunities,” said Rafael Alcadipani da Silveira, a public security expert at the Getulio Vargas Foundation, a think tank in Sao Paulo. “In Brazil, organized crime is very strong, security in small towns is weak and bank raids seem like an easy crime to commit.”In the Guararema bank robbery, police pursued the gang to a nearby highway, where the two sides exchanged gunfire. Eleven gang members were killed by police.NOWHERE TO BANKBrazil’s banks, which spend $2.3 billion on security each year, have made headway against the gangs.Bank raids fell 20 percent last year, to 758 attacks, according to news reports and police records compiled by an association of private security workers, known as Contrasp. The tally, which has declined steadily since 2014, does not capture the rising scale of heists like the one in Guararema.Whereas criminals once knocked over individual ATMs in the street, banks have now moved their machines into bank branches where robbers often blow open a whole row at a time — which only shows up as a single attack.The shift in tactics illustrates how criminal gangs are adjusting to added security measures by banks, warned Leandro Vilaim, business and operation director at bank industry association Febraban.”There is no silver bullet,” he said. “These measures are short-lived because attacks are always changing in nature. When banks squeeze the bandits, they find a new way out.”Cash machines sold in Brazil, at up to 150,000 reais each, cost roughly double those in the United States.That reflects the price of tamper-resistant technologies including explosion-resistant safes, ink that stains bills when cash machines are dynamited and an average of 10 specialized sensors to respond to attacks — all of which drives up costs.”Brazilian ATMs are so robust that if the country was bombed in a war, only cockroaches and ATMs would be left,” said Vilaim.Other contermeasures include ear-piercing sirens, strobe lights and even fog machines traditionally used at night clubs, deployed to stun thieves. And Brazilian lender Itaú Unibanco Holding is investing in cameras that can identify thieves even when they use disguises.Then there is the ultimate deterrent: shuttering a town’s branch altogether – an increasingly frequent solution that is leaving a growing number of small Brazilian towns without a single bank or ATM.Some 200 towns that had at least one branch as recently as 2016 now have none at all, according to the country’s central bank. That is sometimes the result of normal cost cutting, but in many cases a direct result of multiple robberies at the same branch, according to bank executives.Closures have left some towns with no source of cash, prompting several local prosecutors to file suits against the banks, seeking to reopen the branches.”The main complaint in those cities comes from merchants. People don’t have cash to buy stuff, so it affects the local economy,” said Glauber Tatagiba, state prosecutor in Minas Gerais, who has filed suits against lenders.The southeastern Brazilian town of Minduri, for example, lost its sole branch, run by Banco do Brasil, in July, forcing its 4,000 residents to travel 22 kilometers (14 miles) to São Vicente de Minas to withdraw funds.Months later, thieves blasted the ATM in São Vicente de Minas, so customers had to head 33 km in the other direction to the nearest bank in Cruzilia, whose own branch had only recently reopened after an explosion.”It is tough situation especially for pensioners, who have to travel to withdraw money as few merchants take cards here,” said Minduri municipal administrator Lucas Magalhães.ARMORED CARS AND RIFLESWhat sets Brazil apart from other regions where ATMs are targeted, including parts of Europe and Africa, are the frequency of attacks, according to security experts, along with Brazilians’ explosive of choice.In other parts of the world, explosive gas is usually used to blow up ATMs. But Brazil’s gangs have shown a taste for dynamite, usually stolen from mines and construction sites.One dynamite stick strategically placed in a cash machine can send thousands of bank bills flying within seconds, ready to be bagged by waiting accomplices. Preparation, however, takes much longer, as the thieves carefully put together gangs of at least 10 people, each with their own skill set.Gangs are equipped with high-powered military gear, often including tactical bulletproof vests, gloves, balaclavas, armored cars and .50 caliber rifles, said Pedro Ivo dos Santos, who heads the anti-bank robbery task force in São Paulo.Even if the thieves’ equipment is second-hand or stolen, he added in an interview, the price tag for such an arsenal would run around 400,000 reais. Many police departments don’t have the resources to compete.Once a gang targets an ATM, they assign specific jobs to perform during what typically amounts to a four-minute robbery. Some scatter metal road spikes to pierce the tires of police cars, for instance, while others specialize in opening the cash machines and inserting dynamite.”ATM bombing is just the tip of the iceberg. Thieves usually start by robbing banks and later on use the proceeds to finance drug trafficking, in a move they see as career development,” said commissioner Santos.($1 = 3.8670 reais)
Major Victor Kuykendoll from the TABC’s Arlington office later wrote in an internal email that “it is unknown at this time why intelligence of the (Confederation of Clubs) meeting was not conveyed to TABC” and that the move was “very uncharacteristic of Waco PD.” He added that once the hectic and chaotic nature of the investigation around the shooting began to settle, the agency needed to address “where communication had broken down.” Kuyenkdoll believed that with advance notice from the police department, the agency “could have taken proactive measures to help them address concerns about the upcoming event.” That said, it’s unclear what, if anything, the TABC could have done.The Waco Police Department would instead team with another agency, the Texas Department of Public Safety, to launch a joint surveillance operation at Twin Peaks. That operation took a far more aggressive stance, with a mission including undercover agents, SWAT teams and surveillance cameras. The plan, written days in advance of the May 17 gathering, listed contingency plans for everything – from barricaded suspects to hostage situations and downed officers. It noted Baylor Scott & White Medical Center, three miles down the road, had the nearest emergency room. The hospital did receive the injured, in the gory aftermath of the shootout.The TABC wouldn’t learn about the shootout from either Waco police or the Texas Department of Public Safety. In fact, the agency was only made aware of the incident when a TABC agent’s family member notified her nearly a half-hour after it had happened. Agent Doris Board learned about the shooting from her husband, a police officer in the nearby city of Lorena, and quickly relayed the news up the TABC chain of command.Twin Peaks may have known of the danger, but didn’t take steps to prevent it.Since the shootings, several lawsuits have been filed by people who were at Twin Peaks that day. Many of those suits have been aimed at the restaurant itself, claiming management knew there was a high risk of danger, but did little to prevent it.According to TABC documents obtained by the Texas Standard, there may be some evidence to support that claim. On May 4, the TABC received a message from Waco Police Sergeant Jared Wallace. The Waco Twin Peaks had been hosting biker nights with “no issue,” Wallace wrote. But he was now alarmed because the Banditos “claimed the bar” as their own. The TABC notes are somewhat vague about the reaction of restaurant management at this point. The notes simply say management didn’t like “them” disrupting their business, and it’s unclear if that meant the management was unhappy with the Bandidos or the police department inquiring into their affairs. However, other statements point to rising tensions between the restaurant and law enforcement.After the shootings, the TABC interviewed restaurant operating manager Jinten “Jay” Patel. He admitted that he had been warned about the “likelihood of violence at the location” well in advance by Waco officers. The TABC documents state that Patel admitted he didn’t believe additional security precautions were needed for the May 17 gathering, such as patting down patrons for weapons or hiring off-duty officers to attend. In fact, Patel allegedly claimed that customers would be uncomfortable at the sight of police “in uniforms with guns roaming the premises.” Still, Patel told authorities that he hired three security guards to attend, but they never showed.The restaurant’s general manager, Brad Doan, also caught law enforcement’s attention. He told authorities that he witnessed a fight erupt on the patio before shouting for a “code red,” a warning to employees that things had grown dangerous, and that they should take shelter in the kitchen. Several employees and customers huddled in a cooler as gunfire broke out in the parking lot.In the eyes of the TABC though, Doan wasn’t just seen as a witness; the agency theorized that Doan may have had a connection to one of the outlaw motorcycle gangs in attendance that day. The TABC would later comb through Doan’s social media contacts to find a connection, but documents show nothing tangible was found at that time.In the immediate aftermath of the shootings, the TABC issued a summary suspension, prohibiting the Twin Peaks restaurant from selling alcohol – an action the agency may take after a shooting, or other violent event. The TABC said that the action isn’t an accusation of wrongdoing, and was done only to allow for an investigation.Soon after the TABC action, Twin Peaks’ parent company stepped in. It quickly pulled the franchise agreement with Chalak Mitra Group, which operated the Waco location, forcing the restaurant to permanently close. Franchisee general manager Doan would respond in a written statement, voicing his disappointment in the “sudden decision to cancel our Waco franchise before all of the facts are learned.” In that letter, he also said that “law enforcement officials did not ask either the Waco restaurant operator (with whom they spoke several times) or the Twin Peaks franchisor to cancel the patio reservation that was made on Sunday.” Operating manager Patel reiterated that assertion in a similar statement, saying, “Our management team has had ongoing and positive communications with the police.” The Waco Police Department would later say that statement was a “complete fabrication.”An incomplete pictureRepeated attempts were made to reach both the Waco Police Department and the Texas Department of Public Safety for comment. When asked to confirm the veracity of our documents, DPS initially demanded that we identify the source of our information. A spokesperson later responded, saying that they “are not able to confirm that information.” A TABC spokesperson told us that documents attributed to them are authentic. The agency would not comment further due to the ongoing investigation.Mitchel Roth is a professor at Sam Houston State University, and an expert in outlaw motorcycle gangs. He says the lack of transparency after the shootout is concerning. “It sounds like a poorly planned operation that just got out of control,” Roth says. “When something’s kept quiet for that long, you know somebody f***** up somewhere.”In the years since the shootings, Waco courts levied exorbitant bail amounts, and issued sweeping gag orders (since lifted) against many people who were at Twin Peaks that day. But there has not yet been a single criminal conviction. The first criminal trial is slated to begin September 12 – but even that date could be subject to change, after a series of motions caused one judge to be recused from three trials. The next presiding judge, 54th State District Judge Matt Johnson, may face a similar challenge.As many of the 177 arrested wait for their day in court, much of the bloody melee has gone unexplored. Until a fuller picture emerges, we have the glimpses offered by these documents – a restaurant blind to possible dangers, missed opportunities for law enforcement collaboration, and a police department eager for intel on biker clubs, all to the detriment of public safety. Photo via Rod Aydelotte/WacoTribIt’s been more than two years since one of the deadliest criminal shootouts in American history. But the bloody clash involving motorcyclists at a Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco continues to be shrouded by a veil of secrecy. Criminal trials are scheduled to start next week, and thanks to a trove of leaked documents obtained by the Texas Standard, we now gain a fascinating insight into the lethal fray.What information authorities have released to the public seems sparse: a scuffle in a parking lot led to a gunfight. Police, already on the scene, fired into the fray, leaving nine dead and 18 wounded. Members of the biker gang known as the Bandidos were singled out as the primary culprits. Mass arrests wrangled 177 people who were held on extraordinarily high $1 million bonds, with many contending they were merely bystanders that day.Law enforcement has stayed largely silent on the matter, while those accused of wrongdoing have launched a series of civil lawsuits targeting everyone from the police to Baylor University. What previously undisclosed documents show is that police had reason to believe violence would occur, but failed to intervene, that Twin Peaks management didn’t take proper precautions to protect customers and that one state law enforcement agency was kept completely in the dark. The “potential for violence” was “very high”On May 1, 2015, nearly two weeks before the shootings, Waco Police Department gang detective Jeff Rogers sent an email through the department ranks, warning about the potential for violence at an upcoming gathering of bikers. A source had tipped Rogers off that a grassroots coalition of biker groups, known as the Confederation of Clubs and Independents, was going to hold a gathering at Waco’s Twin Peaks on May 17. Rogers’ email said the event could possibly draw 300 bikers, many of them associated with the Bandidos and their support clubs.Escalating tensions had also drawn the attention of the Texas Department of Public Safety. Two months before the Waco shootings, a warning went out from the Texas Joint Crime Information Center, an intelligence entity run by DPS. The bulletin outlined an incident that occurred in the town of Lorena, just 15 minutes south of Waco. There, a gang of up to 10 Cossacks armed with a chain, a baton and a metal pipe had beaten a Bandidos member and stolen his bike.The bulletin also noted that on the same day, 150 miles north in Palo Pinto County, a group wearing the Bandidos’ colors (red and gold) hit a Cossacks member in the head with a hammer for refusing to remove a Texas patch from his vest. The right to wear the patch was reserved for Bandidos and their affiliates. The bulletin ended on a note of caution, saying the Cossacks were attempting to get national recognition as a club, and that tensions could “escalate at any time” between them and the Bandidos.But despite warnings of impending violence and the potential for loss of life, it appears that police didn’t take steps to intervene. In fact, a series of text messages obtained by the Texas Standard, that were sent nearly an hour before the shooting shows that law enforcement may have ignored signs that a violent confrontation was on the horizon.Michael Lynch was at Twin Peaks on May 17. He belongs to a local motorcycle club known as the Los Pirados. A Waco-area plumber, Lynch had done contracting work for McLennan County Constable Walt Strickland. Before the shooting started, Lynch sent a message asking Strickland to call him immediately, saying there was a “bad situation” with a large number of Cossacks and Bandidos pouring into the restaurant.Strickland responded that he notified the Waco police department, and was told police were “unaware” of any problems at Twin Peaks. It’s unclear whether that information was relayed through the proper departmental channels, or if certain parts of the department were unaware of an undercover police presence on the scene.But emails, operations orders and notes would show that police were already conducting a long-orchestrated surveillance operation that had already unearthed several warning signs.Michael’s wife Sandra, who was also there that day, confirms the messages were sent. Sandra Lynch, who regularly attends biker gatherings on weekends, was setting up a table to sell t-shirts and merchandise at Twin Peaks. She says that soon after she set up shop, about 75 Cossacks entered the restaurant. Lynch said she tried to stop them from entering but she was unsuccessful.“After they got off their bikes, about six to eight surrounded me, yelled at me for getting in their way, kicked me, spit on me, call me a c***,” she says. “I looked around for a policeman and thought to myself, ‘Where is a cop when you need one?’”Lynch said she and her husband reached out to the constable after Michael arrived. “Walt called him back and told him that Waco [police] said it was all taken care of, they said it was under control,” Lynch says.Moments later, gunfire erupted, leaving nine people dead and 18 wounded.Lynch was separated from her husband during the barrage. “It felt like I was in Afghanistan,” she says. “It felt like I was in a war.”Both Michael and Sandra Lynch, along with nearly 200 others, were rounded up and arrested. Charges for both of them would eventually be dropped. Sandra Lynch questions whether law enforcement could have intervened beforehand. That’s a question another law enforcement entity may have wondered about as well.Kept in the dark, the TABC said “communication had broken down.”The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission is a law enforcement entity with jurisdiction over all matters related to alcohol sales. In the weeks before the shootings, the agency had been made aware the Waco Twin Peaks restaurant was frequented by Bandidos, and that management had grown “uncooperative” with police, according to internal notes.The TABC could have been a natural partner with the Waco Police Department – but instead the agency was kept out of the loop.In internal communications, the TABC highlighted its previous working relationship with the police department, which included working in parallel, to monitor previous biker nights at the same Twin Peaks location. But while the department had previously told the agency about the increased Bandidos presence at the restaurant, no mention was ever made of the impending mid-May gathering. The police department took a more administrative route initially; one Waco officer requested TABC assistance in contacting Twin Peaks’ corporate office about the growing biker presence there. But the agency lost track of whether that phone call ever happened. Even so, the there was very little the TABC could do, as they noted, “there are no violations committed for allowing motorcycle clubs … inside their business.” Share
Popular on Variety Rotten Tomatoes Adds 600 Critics After Initiative to Increase Inclusion ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Outsells ‘Infinity War’ in Fandango Presales Rotten Tomatoes is dramatically changing its Audience Score methodology for movies: The site’s standard user rating will now reflect only moviegoers who can prove they’ve bought a ticket to see it in a theater.It’s another troll-fighting move by Rotten Tomatoes, designed to curb coordinated “review bombs” aimed at pushing down the Audience Score for films that certain bad-faith actors dislike. In February, the site disabled user comments prior to a movie’s release and changed the “Want to See” rating from a percentage score (which had been subject to tampering by trolls) to show the raw number of Rotten Tomato moviegoers who said they intend to see the movie.But it’s also a way for Fandango, which owns Rotten Tomatoes, to drive more ticket sales — initially, the only way users can have their ratings count toward the Audience Score will be through a Fandango purchase. Even with the change, Rotten Tomatoes will continue to allow all visitors to rate and review movies regardless of whether or not they are confirmed ticket purchasers. In addition, users will have an option to see the “all audience” score for a given movie, which incorporates all user ratings (the way Rotten Tomatoes has previously displayed the Audience Score). User-submitted reviews — both verified and unverified — will still be listed on the site, with those that are verified marked with a “verified” badge.The way Rotten Tomatoes calculates the Audience Score using ratings from verified ticket buyers will be the same: The score is the percentage of all users who have given it a star rating of 3.5 or higher (out of five stars).Rotten Tomatoes’ Audience Scores for TV shows will remain unchanged, for now, so they’ll continue to incorporate all ratings from the site’s registered users.With the Tomatometer system, Fandango has responded to criticism that Rotten Tomatoes needed to widen the pool of movie and TV reviewers used for the scores. Last August, Rotten Tomatoes added 200 new critics after expanding the criteria for inclusion, particularly to reflect women and underrepresented voices, and has since added more than 500 new Tomatometer-approved critics and publications. In all, Rotten Tomatoes tracks about 4,500 critics.Meanwhile, in another change, Fandango said Rotten Tomatoes will begin powering the fan rating system on Fandango site and mobile apps, replacing the movie-ticketing service’s previous five-star fan rating. Once their ticket purchases are confirmed through their Fandango user account, Fandango ticket buyers’ ratings and reviews will now count toward the Verified Audience Score displayed on Fandango and Rotten Tomatoes, as well as on other platforms that syndicate Rotten Tomatoes scores. Asked if the change to Rotten Tomatoes’ Audience Score system was really about selling more tickets through Fandango, chief marketing officer Lori Pantel responded, “Absolutely not. We’re open to any partner that wants to come on board.” She said decision for the change came out of research the company conducted over the last year showing that Rotten Tomatoes users “want more transparency.”As for why Fandango is making the change to Rotten Tomatoes movie Audience Scores now — instead of waiting until more exhibitor partners are integrated — Pantel said, “It’s about scale and expediency as we kick off the summer season of movies.”Rotten Tomatoes’ change also means the primary movie Audience Score ratings will be computed only from authenticated ticket-buyers in the U.S., at least out of the gate. Fandango says it’s the latest step to “modernize” Rotten Tomatoes, ever since NBCUniversal’s Fandango acquired the reviews-aggregation site in 2016 from Warner Bros., which retains a 25% stake in Rotten Tomatoes.Over the span of Rotten Tomatoes’ two-decade history it has mainly focused on Tomatometer, its aggregated score of critic ratings. Fandango now sees the opportunity to “increase confidence in the Audience Score,” said Greg Ferris, the company’s VP of product.“We think this provides more information, more transparency and more consumer confidence around the score itself,” Ferris said, adding, “The byproduct of dissuading bad actors from influencing fan sentiment is certainly part of this.”Movies opening Friday, May 24, that are subject to Rotten Tomatoes’ new Audience Rating system include Disney’s live-action “Aladdin,” Olivia Wilde-directed comedy “Booksmart” and Sony Pictures Entertainment’s superhero thriller “Brightburn.” All new releases going forward will be subject to the same requirement that users confirm a ticket purchase before their ratings count toward the displayed Audience Score; Fandango said viewer scores for previous movies won’t change. Fandango insists that boosting ticket purchases was not the primary driver of the Audience Score change, noting that it has deals with AMC Theatres, Regal and Cinemark Theatres to participate in the program to let their customers verify their ticket purchases on Rotten Tomatoes sometime later this year.
