    Anyone watch New Mutants now that it’s on HBO? Is it any good?

    I am amused by the black widow actress suing Disney now that her contract is over and she is done with marvel movies. I have noooo idea if her claims have any merit(I would assume they do)but she did already get 20+ million for her last film. How much more does she want?

    Nerd response (even though I could care less) but I think the issue is this...if the movie was released in the theater, she would get a bigger back end cut of the profit. However, since it was streamed Disney gets 100% of the streaming profit. It's the reason why theaters were so mad because they lost money.
    Either way..you are right 20 million to act in front of a green screen?

    No idea what any of this is about, but I'm fully in favor of anyone and everyone suing Disney. Sue them into oblivion.

    I actually took the time to look into it since I posted here.

    So apparently Black Widow had the biggest drop in ticket sales from opening week to the next week ever for a Disney movie. It wasn't even close. That pissed off theatre owners who said it was a direct result of the Disney Plus release(which was not free)and that the at home release led to instant pirating of a perfect version of the film which hurt ticket sale even more.

    Scarlett Johansson is now officially done with Marvel and probably movies in general for awhile since she decided to start having kids and whatnot. It was estimated that on top of the 20 million she already made from this one movie she could have pulled in another 50 million if the film did as well as they expected in actual movie theaters. She believes the disney plus release screwed her over and said that she had been promised the movie would get a full theatrical release before anything streaming happened so she is suing disney.

    Disney actually released a statement about the lawsuit and basically said she was a jerk for not understanding that covid changed all the rules. Trying to make it sound like she should be willing to lose money instead of them.

    Home viewers had to pay $30 extra to see Black Widow on Disney Plus. My understanding is that Johanssen was not offered a cut of that money
    She gets only the box office proceeds, in accordance with her original contract. Her lawyers offered to sit down with Disney to discuss the matter, but they refused to negotiate. I feel like she is entitled to her day in court.

    Also, if anyone hasn't seen Under the Skin yet, you should do so.

    Scarjo may want to watch out. Other than the Department of Defense, the Mouse buys more bombs than anyone in the US.

    Interesting - thanks for the recap! Billionaires trying to screw millionaires. As suspected, my opinion stands - fuck Disney. I loathe that they own two properties I'm actually interested in (SW and Marvel - duh). If it weren't for that, I'd probably never watch another Disney creation ever again...other than re-watching my Tron DVD (original, not reboot - again, duh).

    I enjoyed it a lot myself.

    My only complaint is that my least favorite character in the entire movie is getting his own spin-off show. Any other character would have been way more fun in my opinion.

    ^^ Would watch. Haven't dug a character that much with only two minutes of screen time and zero dialog since Bosk/Zuckuss/4Lom.

    Right?!

    I picture him killing children but like totally by accident. Playing tag but accidentally impaling them with an overzealous tag swing. Play wrestling but accidentally yanking limbs off. Tea parties with radiator fluid cause he likes the flavor.

    He's just misunderstood.
