comment First use of on-screen text messages, like in Sherlock and House of Cards
Thanks. The article says of House of Cards: David Fincher, who directed the first two episodes of the show, decided that he wanted the texts to appear almost as text bubbles with a pale blue or gray background, depending on who was sending the message, as opposed to showing close-ups of phones. After he proposed the caption idea, Mr. Willimon showed him some clips from "Sherlock," which depicts texts on screen as white subtitles in a Helvetica font, and asked "Is this what you had in mind?" Mr. Fincher "was a bit bummed that it had been done before," he says. "But good ideas are good ideas."

comment What is the first instance of people filing a petition against casting a character?
The website danielcraigisnotbond.com dates from at least September 2006 when it said: "So keep those emails going, sign the petitions, and BOYCOTT this movie!" wayback.archive.org/web/20060901174939/http://… // They linked to the KeepPierceOnAsBond Yahoo group which started in October 2004: wayback.archive.org/web/20060831202957/http://…
