BlackBerry Ltd warned on Friday it expects to report a huge quarterly operating loss next week and that it will cut more than a third of its global workforce, rekindling fears of the company's demise and sending its shares into a tailspin.The company, which has struggled to claw back market share from the likes of Apple Inc's  iPhone and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd's Galaxy phones, said it expects to report a net operating loss of between $950 million and $995 million in the quarter ended Aug. 31, due to writedowns and other factors.

作為在歐美市場有過輝煌過往的手機品牌,BlackBerry 的興衰史現在要被搬上大銀幕了。據 Variety 報導,這部被簡單命名為《BlackBerry》的新片是由負責過《Operation Avalanche》的 Matt Johnson 執導,主演是 Jay Baruchel 和 Glenn Howerton(多半是扮演創始人、聯合 CEO Mike Lazaridis 和 Jim Balsillie),近期已經完成了製作。

該片是根據記者 Jacquie McNish 和 Sean Silcoff 所著的《Losing the Signal: The Untold Story Behind the Extraordinary Rise and Spectacular Fall of BlackBerry》一書改編,會講述初期 RIM 崛起到之後 BlackBerry 被 Apple、Google 超越之間發生的諸多事件。因為原著發行於 2015 年,所以後期品牌嘗試重返榮耀的那段經歷應該是不會出現在電影中了。

目前《BlackBerry》還沒有確定具體的上映時間,接下來 BB 粉絲們可以多關注一下。
