ViacomCBS President and CEO Bob Bakish said his theatrical windowing plan for new movies coming to Paramount+ is more “sustainable” than others. Paramount Pictures movies will now have a theatrical window of 45 days, which will be shortened to 30 days for smaller films from the studio, before heading to ViacomCBS’ new SVOD (subscriber video on demand) platform. The traditional theatrical window was 90 days, meaning this new approach either halves or cuts by two-thirds the former longstanding plan. “I believe that is a sustainable offering. Some of these other film moves that have been made, it’s not clear to me they’re sustainable,” Bakish said on Tuesday. “But this move, it puts the titles in the theaters, so if people want to go and get a big-screen experience, they can do that.” Also Read: Did Paramount Just Put a Nail in the 90-Day Theatrical Window? “If you look at the curve, the degradations on most film titles, they do very list business on post-Day 30 and certainly post-Day 45,” Bakish, who was the morning’s keynote speaker at the (virtual) 2021 Morgan Stanley’s Technology, Media and Telecommunications Conference, continued. “So moving to an in-house streaming window at that part we think works, certainly for us, but also for constituents, including consumers.” The new plan will begin with “A Quiet Place – Part II” and also be in place for Mission: Impossible 7.” CBS All Access will rebrand — and expand — as Paramount+ on Thursday. “We believe it’s the right model for the future,” Bakish concluded. Also Read: Paramount, EPIX Expand TV/Streaming Partnership As Bakish alluded, Paramount’s key competition is doing things a bit differently. Warner Bros. films in 2021 will launch simultaneously in theaters (where allowed) and on streaming service HBO Max. But that plan is only set in stone for this year, which was always going to be a weird one due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. New Universal films can stream as early as 17 days after they hit theaters, or 31 days if the film earns more than $50 million in its opening weekend, under a new pact with AMC and Cinemark theaters. NBCUniversal’s streaming service, Peacock, launched early on in the pandemic. Disney has experimented with various different release strategies of its new films amid COVID. It has remained committed to theatrical releases of big tentpoles like Marvel’s “Black Widow,” but also experimented with simultaneous theatrical and streaming (Disney+) releases for films like “Mulan” and next month’s “Raya and the Last Dragon.” Read original story Bob Bakish Thinks the Paramount+ Theatrical-Window Plan Is More ‘Sustainable’ Than Others At TheWrap

If you have an allergic reaction to your first dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, you should not get the second shot, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises. That guidance applies to both severe and non-severe allergic reactions, the CDC says on its website. The mRNA vaccines are the two-shot regimens produced by Moderna and Pfizer; they're called mRNA vaccines because they use messenger RNA to prompt the immune system to create antibodies to the coronavirus. The newly approved one-shot Johnson&Johnson vaccine is not an mRNA vaccine—it uses a weakened, harmless adenovirus to provoke an immune response. Read on to see if you should get the vaccine—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. CDC Has "Learned of Reports" of "Severe Allergic Reactions" But They Are Rare"CDC has learned of reports that some people have experienced severe allergic reactions—also known as anaphylaxis—after getting a COVID-19 vaccine," the agency says. "An allergic reaction is considered severe when a person needs to be treated with epinephrine or EpiPen or if they must go to the hospital." People who have an "immediate allergic reaction" to an mRNA vaccine that is non-severe—meaning, not requiring emergency care—also should avoid the second dose. "CDC has also learned of reports that some people have experienced non-severe allergic reactions within 4 hours after getting vaccinated (known as immediate allergic reactions), such as hives, swelling, and wheezing (respiratory distress)," the agency says. RELATED: 10 COVID Symptoms You Haven’t Heard AboutYou May Get "COVID Arm," Which is OKAn allergic reaction is different from "COVID arm," an red, itchy, swollen, or painful rash at the site of the shot, which may begin a few days to a week after the initial vaccination. If you get "COVID arm" after an mRNA vaccine, you should still get the second shot, the CDC says. The agency advises telling the person giving you the shot that you had "COVID arm;" they may advise you to take the second shot in the other arm. "CDC does not currently know whether people who experience 'COVID arm' after the first dose will have a similar reaction after the second dose," the agency says. "However, currently available evidence suggests that having this type of reaction after the first dose does not increase your risk of having a severe allergic reaction after the second dose."Allergic reactions to the vaccine are extremely rare. In the United States through Jan. 24, there were 50 reported cases of anaphylaxis among 9,943,247 doses of the Pfizer vaccine. That works out to 5 cases of anaphylaxis per million doses administered. For the Moderna vaccine, there were 21 reported cases of anaphylaxis out of 7,581,429 doses—2.8 cases of anaphylaxis per million doses given.RELATED: Dr. Fauci Just Said When We'd Get Back to NormalHow to Stay Healthy During This PandemicAs for yourself, do everything you can to prevent getting—and spreading—COVID-19 in the first place: Wear a face mask, get tested if you think you have coronavirus, avoid crowds (and bars, and house parties), practice social distancing, only run essential errands, wash your hands regularly, disinfect frequently touched surfaces, and to get through this pandemic at your healthiest, don't miss these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

For the foreseeable future, masks are going to be a part of everyday life in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. However, not all masks are created equal. Not only are some types of protective face coverings more protective than others, but certain types of masks can even up the chances of transmission, result in negative health consequences, or even have a negative impact on the pandemic altogether. “Correct and consistent mask use is a critical step everyone can take to prevent getting and spreading COVID-19. Masks work best when everyone wears them, but not all masks provide the same protection. When choosing a mask, look at how well it fits, how well it filters the air, and how many layers it has,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explains on one of their pages devoted to mask safety. They also reveal which masks should not be worn. Read on to find out if your mask is on their list—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 1 Avoid Any Mask That Isn’t Breathable There’s a reason masks aren’t generally made out of spandex, leather, or vinyl: they aren’t breathable. The CDC suggests staying away from masks that “are made of fabric that makes it hard to breathe.” 2 Avoid Valved Masks At the start of the pandemic a lot of people were rocking valved masks, with the idea that the exhaust vents would make it easier to breath. However, the CDC says not to wear any masks that have exhalation valves or vents,w”hich allow virus particles to escape.” 3 Avoid Medical Masks Sure, masks intended for medical professionals work. But, the supply needs to be reserved for them—not the general public. The CDC urges against any masks “intended for healthcare workers, including N95 respirators.” 4 Face Shields May Not Be So Effective A face shield might seem more comfortable than a fabric mask, but the CDC specifically deems them “not recommended” as “evaluation of face shields is ongoing, but effectiveness is unknown at this time.” 5 Avoid a Single Layer Gaiter Sure, you can wear a gaiter, but make sure it isn’t a single layer. “Wear a gaiter with two layers, or fold it to make two layers.”RELATED: If You Feel This You May Have Already Had COVID Says Dr. Fauci 6 Avoid a Scarf, Ski Mask, or Balaclava “Scarves, ski masks and balaclavas are not substitutes for masks,” the CDC points out. However, they do mention that you can wear them over your mask. 7 Do Your Part to Stop COVID-19 and Save Yourself Follow the fundamentals and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live—wear a face mask that fits snugly and is double layered, don’t travel, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

In recent months it has moved from a hypothetical to a near-enough certainty that vaccine passports will be the key to opening up our holidays in the post-lockdown era. A flurry of countries have outlined plans for accepting proof of vaccination as a way for holidaymakers to enter this summer, restriction-free. Later this month the EU will vote on legislation for a bloc-wide vaccination certification system, to unlock travel between the countries by the summer. However, the likes of Greece and Spain have suggested they will forge ahead with vaccine passports even if such a system is not reached across the EU. Greece has already agreed a ‘travel bubble’ with Israel, which is leading the way when it comes to vaccinating its population. Other countries, including France and Belgium, have thus far been more hesitant to agree to vaccine certification until there is more evidence that vaccination reduces transmission. This week, Spain’s Tourism Minister Fernando Valdés said that Spain was in “discussions” with the UK and told Bloomberg: “For us the British market is our main market. But obviously since we are a member of the European Union, the solutions have first to be part of the discussions in the EU. “And obviously if that cannot be reached, we will be thinking of other corridors like green corridors with third countries that can help us restart tourism flows.” But discussions over vaccine passports as a means to reopen international travel have opened up a question among those in younger age brackets, as well as those who cannot or will not get a jab: what happens if you haven’t received two doses of the jab by the time summer comes round? When will I get my vaccination? Currently, anyone aged 60 and above can expect a call to receive the vaccine. The NHS says if you are not eligible yet: “Wait to be contacted. The NHS will let you know when it is your turn to have the vaccine. It is important not to contact the NHS for a vaccination before then.” It is expected that over 50s will receive the letter in the coming weeks, and those in their forties could be called up before the end of March. Those in the lowest age brackets will be the last to be contacted to receive their first jab. The Government says all adults should have received their first dose of the vaccine by July 31. However, with the 12-week gap between first and second doses, it might be autumn before adults in their 20s or 30s are fully vaccinated. Who will be able to travel with vaccine passports? It is likely that any vaccine certification will only be issued to people who have received the full course of a recognised Covid-19 vaccine – so, as it stands, this means two doses. Will unvaccinated adults be allowed to travel? The good news is that, while vaccine passports could be accepted as a means to introduce restriction-free travel, this does not necessarily mean that those who have not received two doses of the vaccine will not be able to travel. The expectation is that countries will continue to accept negative Covid test results, in lieu of a vaccination certificate. Mayor of Santorini, Antonis Sigalas told Telegraph Travel: “To some extent the messaging in the news currently about vaccine passports and a Greece/UK corridor is misleading. We in Greece want to make it clear that everyone can visit Greece provided they show a negative Covid test and this is not just limited to those who have had the vaccine and possess a vaccine passport.” How many tests will I need to take to go on holiday? This is the slightly less good news. If you do not have a vaccine certificate, you could well be looking at a number of tests, and likely at your own expense. This will differ country-by-country, but you may need to take tests before you travel (usually between 48 and 72 hours), on arrival (destinations differ: in Italy, the test is taken at the airport), before returning home (the UK currently requires a test 72 hours before you travel home) and on arrival home (the UK currently requires a test on days two and eight after arriving back in the country). Will I need to quarantine on arrival, if I have not been vaccinated? Quite possibly yes. It is too early to know how countries will open their doors. We can assume that an economy hoping to lure in tourists will not apply a prohibitive 10-day quarantine on arrivals, but it is possible you will need to self-isolate while you await a test result, and possibly stay in a Covid-secure hotel or resort for a number of days before you can move about freely. Will I need to quarantine on return, if I have not been vaccinated? The UK Government has been tight-lipped when it comes to when, and how, international travel will resume. All we know is that May 17 is the earliest possible date that travel restrictions will be lifted (as it stands, all non-essential travel is banned). It is fair to assume that some kind of travel corridors system, as seen in 2020, could be re-introduced. Countries on a ‘green list’ would presumably have very low or similar prevalence of Covid and no evidence of worrying new vaccine-evading variants, and high vaccination counts. We have rounded up the top contenders for such a ‘green list’, here. As it stands, arrivals from 33 countries must stay in a quarantine hotel on arrival back into the UK. It is not known when the scheme will be dropped.
The coronavirus is a terrifying disease, in that so many people are asymptomatic, while others die—and still others live, but are maimed. These latter folks, dubbed long haulers, have symptoms after shedding the virus that have lasted a year, and may last for life. And it can ruin their life. “This is a phenomenon that is really quite real and quite extensive,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious diseases expert, said at an NIH conference last month about Post-COVID Syndrome, or Long COVID. Read on to see if you have any of the hallmark symptoms scientists have discovered—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 1 You Will Most Likely Have Debilitating Fatigue The most common symptom of Post-COVID Syndrome is fatigue and it won’t just feel like you’re a bit sleepy. It’s an all-consuming smackdown that takes over your body, and can resemble Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or myalgic encephalomyelitis. WNBA star Asia Durr, of the New York Liberty, has been a long hauler for eight months and may never play the game professionally again. "There's days where I feel great, like I could go out and go to the store or I could clean up," Durr told Real Sports recently. "And then there's days where I'm like, 'I just have to stay in the bed,' and you just feel like you get hit by a bus." 2 You May Have Post-Exertional Malaise Dr. Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the President and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has himself agreed Post-COVID Syndrome is like ME/CFS, and one of the hallmark symptoms of ME/CFS is post-exertional malaise. Some days you may feel OK, and venture out of the house for a long walk, or even do some exercise. Then you may pay for this 24 to 48 hours later, with crushing fatigue, migraines, nausea or other issues that can last for hours, days or weeks. This pain can be caused by stress or work, too. “Post–exertional malaise is a worsening of these symptoms after a physical or mental exertion and is considered a central feature of the illness,” says one study. 3 You May Have Shortness of Breath COVID-19 is a respiratory illness, and as a result, one feature of Post-COVID for many is a shortness of breath. “Breathlessness is a common symptom of COVID-19 (coronavirus),” reports the HSE. “Some people describe it as feeling 'puffed', 'short of breath' or 'winded'. The feeling of shortness of breath may continue for a while after your illness.” 4 You May Have Myalgia Myalgia—or muscle pains and inflammation of tissue—can appear anywhere throughout the body. “For unknown thousands, surviving the virus has evolved into an anticlimactic misery of managing its cough, its fatigue and its pain on a daily basis,” reports NBC News. “There is no precedent for how long the symptoms may last or whether they are consistent with a grimmer, separate reality — a new kind of chronic disease, birthed from the remains of the original illness.” 5 You Might Feel Nauseous or Vomit "[I had] lung pain that was just so severe," Durr said. "It felt like somebody took a long knife and was just stabbing you in your lungs each second. I woke up, two o'clock in the morning vomiting, going back and forth to the bathroom. I couldn't keep anything down." 6 You May Feel Depression or Anxiety Long haulers may experience depression because their “old lives” seem over. "That's what's really hard for me because in life whenever something was hard, I would go and play," Durr said. "I can't even do that now. I can't even shoot a free throw."RELATED: Dr. Fauci Just Said When We'd Get Back to Normal 7 Your Symptoms Might Change “Changing Symptoms” is a common feature of Post-COVID Syndrome. One patient had a buzzing feeling in his torso—likely inflammation—and costochondritis, a pain in the rib tissue. Then he has gastro symptoms. Then he had back pain. Then he got crushing migraines. The whole time, he had fatigue. “I’ve had a lot of the long COVID symptoms. I’ve had some cardiac changes, I’ve had the rash, I’ve had shingles for six weeks, which kept moving and changing, it was very strange. I had nerve pain,” patient Delainne Bond told ABC7 in Denver. 8 You Might Have a Number of Other Symptoms, Too If you have any of these symptoms, contact a medical professional or a Center for Post-COVID Care immediately. Although there is no cure for long haulers (yet), doctors may be able to treat your symptoms. “We need to dig in and do the work that needs to be done to help relieve the suffering and stop this madness,” said Dr. Michael Saag, an infectious disease expert from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, told an NIH panel last month.

“Amen.” That’s what Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the President and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said when Dr. Rochelle Walensky, head of the CDC, expressed concern about COVID-19 cases and deaths. “I want to really keep our eye on the fact that our cases are increasing right now slightly,” she said. “With 70,000 cases per day, “we’re not in that” good “place right now. I think we all need to keep our eye on the fact that we’re not out of the woods here yet.” With that in mind, here’s where Dr. Fauci says you should not go. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 1 Dr. Fauci Says Avoid Travel “The goal is not to open up travel, open up things because we're scaling up vaccination,” says Dr. Walensky. She and Fauci have both said to avoid inessential travel, although Fauci has also said, to Kaiser Health News: “It depends on your individual circumstances. If you are someone who is in the highest risk category, as best as possible, don’t travel anywhere. Or if you go someplace, you have a car, you’re in your car by yourself, not getting on a crowded subway, not getting on a crowded bus or even flying in an airplane. If you’re a 25-year-old who has no underlying conditions, that’s much different.” 2 Dr. Fauci Says Avoid Bars To quote Fauci: “Bars are really problematic. I have to tell you, if you look at some of the outbreaks that we’ve seen, it’s when people go into bars, crowded bars. You know, I used to go to a bar. I used to like to sit at a bar and grab a hamburger and a beer. But when you’re at a bar, people are leaning over your shoulder to get a drink, people next to each other like this. It’s kind of fun because it’s social, but it’s not fun when this virus is in the air. So I would think that if there’s anything you want to clamp down on, for the time being, it’s bars,” he told Kaiser Health News. 3 Dr. Fauci Says Avoid Indoor Restaurants The more restaurants open indoors, the greater chance of COVID-19 spread, believes Fauci. “When you have restaurants indoors in a situation were you have a high degree of infection in the community, [and] you’re not wearing a mask, that’s a problem,” Fauci said. He said if you must dine in one, check for proper ventilation—like, open windows or proper air filters—and sit at a distance from others. 4 Dr. Fauci Says Avoid Gyms and Group Workouts “In fact, the CDC just came out—if you go on their website—with a figure that’s really telling. It shows the odds of risk of different types of situations that give you a higher risk of transmissibility,” Fauci said, and one of them was gyms. In fact, a new CDC report studied COVID spread in gyms and witnessed in one Chicago facility: "Most attendees did not wear a mask during exercise class; infrequent mask use when participating in indoor exercise classes likely contributed to transmission. In addition, the potential for infected persons to infect others between their testing date and receipt of test results reinforces the need to quarantine while waiting for a COVID-19 test result and avoid gatherings while unknowingly infectious." 5 Dr. Fauci Says Avoid Gatherings—Unless it’s a Small Get-Together In Which Every Person Has Been Vaccinated Fauci, who got the Moderna vaccine, has said he allows people who were vaccinated into his house, but rarely. "If we have someone in the house that would be a non-occupant of the house, it's somebody that we know has either been vaccinated or tests themselves very, very frequently," he said. "So we're still very careful." “Like I use the example of a daughter coming in from out of town who is doubly vaccinated and a husband and wife who are vaccinated, and maybe a next door neighbor who, you know, was vaccinated—small gatherings in the home of people. I think you can clearly feel that the relative risk is so low that you would not have to wear a mask that you can have a good social gathering within the home.” He added that the CDC will make official recommendations soon.RELATED: Dr. Fauci Just Said When We'd Get Back to Normal 6 How to Stay Safe During This Pandemic Follow Fauci’s fundamentals and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live—wear a face mask that fits snugly and is double layered, don’t travel, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

Why do we wait until late March to put the clocks forward?. The long-running series in which readers answer other readers’ questions on subjects ranging from trivial flights of fancy to profound scientific and philosophical concepts
One of the most famous lines from Tina Turner’s career came in her introduction to the version of John Fogerty’s “Proud Mary” released by Ike & Tina Turner in 1971. “We never ever do nothing nice and easy,” she said in a sultry snarl. “We always do it nice and rough.” “Tina,” the documentary about Turner that premiered at the 2021 Berlin International Film Festival, has moments where it tries to be nice and easy, sliding over difficult portions in Turner’s life in an attempt to find a celebratory tone. But the film, too, mostly settles for nice and rough, which fits a woman who says in the film, “It wasn’t a good life. It was in some areas, but the goodness didn’t overcome the bad.” The bad is mostly wrapped up in the years Tina Turner spent with her mentor, Svengali and abusive husband, Ike, whose dark shadow hangs over the entire film. But while the story is horrifying at times, moving at other times and occasionally thrilling as Tina’s own power emerges, “Tina” also feels curiously truncated and incomplete. Directors Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin, who won an Oscar for the terrific high-school football documentary “Undefeated” and more recently the immersive Los Angeles riots chronicle “LA 92,” have made a doc that always feels a little removed from its subject, as if Turner wasn’t fully committed to going through it all again. Also Read: Tina Turner Says She Pulled Herself 'Above the Destruction and the Mistakes' in Doc Teaser (Video) “Tina” includes a video interview with Turner shot at her home in Zurich in 2019, but much of what she says about her past doesn’t come from that conversation. Instead, it’s drawn from audiotapes of a People magazine interview she did in 1981, when she revealed for the first time how Ike beat her, and of sessions she did with writer Kurt Loder when he co-authored her autobiography in the mid-1980s. Apart from the archival footage, with its priceless performances from TV shows and concerts, the film is stylized and increasingly melodramatic: The interview subjects are shot in imposing settings, usually sitting in chairs in large rooms with ornate furnishings and distant walls. “Tina” is fascinated by empty spaces, with the camera frequently panning down empty hallways and floating through rooms where things might have happened. The story, though, is harrowing. Turner, born Anna Mae Bullock in rural Tennessee, became a fan of Ike Turner’s Kings of Rhythm while still a teenager, and began singing with them in 1957. At first, she and Ike had a brother-sister type of relationship (and she had a child with another band member). But by the early ’60s, she and Ike had married and he changed her name to Tina Turner. The abuse, she said, started early in their relationship: Ike would beat her with coat hangers, have sex with her afterward and then force her to go onstage. Caught up in what she says was “guilt and fear,” she went along with it and didn’t try to get away. Also Read: 'Tina' Broadway Review: Adrienne Warren Captures Tina Turner's Distinctive Bray of a Voice While those years produced some landmark recordings, including the monumental Phil Spector production “River Deep – Mountain High,” which Spector recorded without Ike in the studio, the film’s examination of the music itself is cursory. Instead, the first two sections of the film — the first one titled “Ike & Tina,” the second “Family” — focus on Ike’s brutality, and finally on her escape, when she walked out of a Dallas hotel room, checked into a Ramada Inn with only the clothes on her back and left him almost everything in the ensuing divorce. The third section of the film, “Comeback,” finds Turner doing cabaret shows and playing Las Vegas before she’s rescued by manager Roger Davies, who engineered the career resurgence that began with the 1984 album “Private Dancer” and its massive, Grammy-winning hit “What’s Love Got to Do With It.” A video of the original, terrible version of the song by the British pop ground Bucks Fizz is one of the few bits of levity in “Tina.” But when you think that her career is on the upswing and her life is happier, the film takes a detour with a section called “The Story.” Ostensibly about her decision to write about her life in the 1986 autobiography “I, Tina,” it turns into a lengthy description of how Turner wrote the book so that she could stop talking about her relationship with Ike, and how it disappointed her to find that people still wanted to talk about that. That’s an odd topic to dwell on 90 minutes into a film that has itself skimmed through much of her career to focus on the Ike story — and that imbalance isn’t helped by an increase in those portentous tracking shots through empty rooms. Still, there are extraordinary moments here, none more so than concert footage of Turner performing an astounding slow version of the Beatles song “Help”; she takes John Lennon’s desperate words and makes them ravaged and soulful in a way that speaks volumes about her state of mind. Also Read: 'Summer of Soul' Film Review: Questlove's Vibrant Concert Film Captures a Pivotal Harlem Moment It’s also a more effective summation of Turner’s power than the final section of the film, “Love,” which tracks her relationship with her husband, Erwin Bach, from the time they met on a European concert tour to the present day. In wrapping up the story this way, the film skips a surprising number of major life events, including a stroke only weeks after her wedding, intestinal cancer and kidney failure. We see her needing help to get down the aisle at the premiere of the musical “Tina,” with Bach on one arm and Oprah Winfrey on the other — but we never learn that she had to learn to walk again after her stroke, or that Bach donated one of his kidneys when she needed a transplant. The ending feels oddly abbreviated and sanitized, especially considering how much time the film has spent on the violence she endured. “I had an abusive life,” she says near the end of the film. “That’s the truth. There’s no other way to tell the story.” And yet, footage like that transfixing performance of “Help” suggests that there should be other ways to tell the story than the way it’s done in “Tina” — ways that feel fuller and richer and are more up to the challenge of capturing Tina Turner in all her rough glory. Following its Berlin Film Festival premiere, “Tina” will air on HBO beginning on March 27.
