Quoted from Aurich:
Holy shit, he did not actually say that. Please tell me that's not a direct quote.
First of all, Robbie the Robot isn't from a "trailer". He's originally from the full length film Forbidden Planet, which was released in 1956. There is no "if it was in the trailer it's public domain" rule.
(The robot was reused several times on camera, some people here probably think of Twilight Zone first even I bet.)
So that's the trailer part.
The second part is films do not enter the public domain right now unless they were made before 1923. 1956 > 1923
So that part is wrong too.
I just checked the license on my Mondo Forbidden Planet print. Rights belong to Turner Entertainment Co., so they're the ones who would handle any licensing.
It's not like I needed another reason to doubt that Jpop has any clue WTF he's actually doing, but that's sure a huge one. Does that mean those cabinets he brought to Expo weren't a colossal waste of time exercise in concept art, but actually a stunningly miscalculated final design?
You know there's a huge difference between teaser copyright law and trailer copyright law, right?
Quoted from Betelgeuse:
What would be really mind blowing was if M Night Shyamalan orchestrated the entire thing to sabotage TH. Like, he actually had an elaborate TBL machine developed solely to kill the pre-order model with no intention of building the game. Hey, with what I've seen today, anything's possible!
Quoted from Soltic:
Now that made me laugh.
It depends on how u juggle business / personal.
Not the intent. Death in the family could certainly explain one partner's silence, but what about Barry's? Some seem to think that nothing is fucked here. IMO, the plane ran out of fuel six weeks ago, and crashed into the mountain Saturday. Public statements addressing the very real and significant concerns buyers have over the BOP delays, TBL licensing, and cash burn (to put it delicately) are long overdue.
The first viewing you're focusing on the plot, which is OK, but nothing amazing. Subsequent viewings you realize that the dialogue is fucking amazing.
