Default FOX Films is run by IDIOTS

Ok, who is running Fox studios? Because they and their team are perhaps the world's most unique idiots. First we have the Watchmen debacle which was a near disaster because Fox couldn't keep it in their pants.

But today I went online and saw a headline for the new Wolverine trailer, so I thought, "hell, I'll check it out." But I played the video and it said "No longer available due to copyright claim by Fox." Now I understand protecting full content and things that might generate revenue from other sources, but to remove a TRAILER? The goal of any movie studio is to get MORE publicity, not less. So the geniuses decide that Youtube isn't an adequate venue for spreading the word?

Article was remove after video was deleted, but you get the point.

Ha Haha Hahahaha Fucking idiots

It may have been to make controversies about it, which in turn could give them a bit of a boost, a jump start if you will, for releasing the trailer.

Fair enough. I hate Fox anyway, so I hope they drive themselves into the ground.

Have you not seen the trailer? This movie is going to suck and suck hard. They're removing the trailers in hopes they can still dupe stupid fan boys into the theater.

Personally I thought the premise for those stupid Orgin movies (Wolverine first then whatever else) were beyond retarded anyway -- they should've just kept milking the X-Men franchise like the spiderman people are doing. Even though they killed off cyclops, I'd still go and watch another movie.

Meh. Part of you can't get excited with something fox is doing since they cancel nearly anything that's even semi-decent.

Neo, don't blame FOX for their TV line-up, blame the viewership. If it weren't for a moronic audience, we wouldn't be tormented with American IDOL 29.5 and Dancing with the Sluts.

Signed, it's the same reason MTV has devolved into reality shows where clearly everything is scripted. Same reason that CBS caters to fucking 90 year olds and the same reason that you can't turn on TSN/ESPN without seeing the fucking Best Damn Sport Show or some highlight reel show. People have no fucking attention span and can't watch actual television.

Well, I don't know what the viewership numbers were for shows like Firefly, but it's for damn sure that Firefly was way more expensive to produce than Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire (did that show on fox?). It's really the reason why we've seen an explosion in reality shows for the past ten years; people will watch whatever is on TV, regardless if it's a scifi drama or a bunch of idiots on an island. It's just that the latter is way cheaper to make.

Even my screenwriting prof last semester admitted to being a huge fan of Survivor. Though he also likes Cowboy Bebop, so I call it a wash.

Oh my fucking god are you fucking serious? That show is the very definition in bad. I can't believe it made it past the fucking pilot it is so bad.

Everything in that show is just plain bad: The writing is bad, the directing is bad, the acting is bad, the editing is bad (fuck a terminator pulls a sub machine gun out of its ass in the first episode).

Not to mention Family Guy and American Dad. And yes I do blame you for that.

Oh, and there is a fairly logical answer to your complaint. Fox's marketing division and legal division are essentially two separate entities. The lawyers are out to protect the copyrights and they don't give a shit about the marketing side of things.

I really don't know why the Terminator IP keeps coming back. It should have ended with the second movie, but now they're on the fourth fucking movie. The last movie was so retarded, they retconned it out of existence with the TV show.

Someone proposed that they offer Firefly Season 2 (pre-release or whatever) for $35. With 4 million people (At least) that would give them about, like, 7 million an episode for a standard 20-episode season?

Make it the first viewer-sponsored show

Have you even watched the show at all? Are you just on the bandwagon other jackasses are? The series is fine if you give it a chance. Personally I think there could be a little less dramatic-teen-shit going on, but it seems to be moving past that.

However it's just another show that's going to suffer from Fox's retarded moving policy (anytime a show is doing even half-way decently, they tend to move it to another timeslot). They did it with dark angel, and they did it with Terminator, so I'm sure in a couple weeks they'll be canceling it to.

Fuck one of the biggest reasons I like the series so much is that they just totally destroyed the shit that was the third movie completely ignoring it. People seem to hate the series because the actors aren't the same, which is just retarded. The direction it's going now seems really interesting, and the way that the series could culminate in them actually preventing judgment day would just be really cool.

Wait, if judgment day is prevented, wouldn't that mean John Conner couldn't exist?
