[b]The Hype Begins![/b] The trailer and posters will be dissected and analyzed by hundreds of peoples. The Troll Babies will bitch and whine. More trailers and preview clips. Repeat! Then cometh the mid-December red-carpet premiere and short reviews. Big-spoilery plot leak on Reddit. Then the critic reviews and box office projections. Opening day on Dec 18 for seven privileged markets. Most of the world the next day. Troll Babies claim they will never, ever watch it in a million years (they're lying). Video shows Putin doing the dirty deed! Someone synced "What have the Romans done for us" audio to a recent Parliament Q&A video.

Playing the title character, Chapman at one point reveals all, inadvertently to hundreds of onlookers. The film’s production, in Tunisia, used a lot of Muslim extras, which posed a problem here, since Muslim women were, by their religious tenets, not supposed to see a random nude man, as they would here. “When I flung open the shutters," Chapman remembered, "half the crowd ran away screaming.” Though the film eventually got the shot as expected, it was yet another case of foreshadowing of what could happen with the film’s release. But it wasn’t without protest in the U.S. The weekend of its release, there was a response from Rabbi Abraham Hecht of the Rabbinical Alliance of America. As quoted in The Guardian, his response was “Never have we come across such a foul, disgusting, blasphemous film before. …[Brian] was produced in hell.” Soon after, members of the Protestant and Catholic Churches chimed in, dubbing the film “a disgraceful assault on religious sensitivity” and the latter group rating it as “Condemned." Of course, all the complaints and protests did was a version of what’s now known as the Streisand Law, after Barbra Streisand complained about photos of the beachside view of her Malibu house violating her privacy, which only served to make more people aware of the photos and her house. The protesting of Life of Brian may have been designed to quash the film’s popularity, but the opposite wound up being true. The film was originally intended to open on just 200 screens in the U.S., but got triple that number based on people’s interest levels, goosed up by the criticisms. This one answers my question. Why classic comedy the Life of Brian was so controversial https://www.thenational.scot/news/17843229.life-brian-controversial/ Fearing criminal action, the Monty Python team decided to have the premiere in New York as it did not have any blasphemy laws. It opened in five cinemas, the biggest being Cinema 1 in New York. On August 17 the film opened to good reviews and massive protests by Christians, mostly, but also by Muslims and Jews, none of whom could possibly have seen the film. This was to be a recurring theme over the next few months – vehement protests and condemnations by people who had not seen the movie. Religious leaders in the USA queued up to blast the film which only ended up making it even more popular – John Cleese would later say to the critics “thanks for making me rich”. __ EMI were committed to financing the film but two days before the cast and crew moved to Tunisia for the main shoot, EMI chief Bernard Delfont pulled the plug after somebody in the organisation read the final script. At the last minute, in stepped George Harrison, the former Beatle, who put up $4 million of his own money. He said he owed the Pythons because their antics had kept him sane during The Beatles’ break-up. Here is a long one from Saturday. He finally realized he no longer had influence and wasn't get bail. Inmate 76318-054: The Last Days of Jeffrey Epstein https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/17/nyregion/epstein-suicide-death.html The jail was a sharp departure from his formerly gilded life, which had included a private island in the Caribbean, a $56 million Manhattan mansion and a network of rich and powerful friends. But in his final days, Mr. Epstein’s efforts to lessen the misery of incarceration seemed to be faltering. He was seldom bathing, his hair and beard were unkempt and he was sleeping on the floor of his cell instead of on his bunk bed, according to people at the jail. _ Jeffrey Epstein feared life behind bars, according to people who knew him. A few years ago, on the second floor of his Upper East Side mansion, he had a mural painted that shows a photorealistic prison scene, with barbed wire, correction officers and a guard station. Mr. Epstein himself is portrayed in the middle, and he told a visitor earlier this year that he wanted the mural to remind him of what could await him if he was not careful. Three months. The rest of the world too. https://www-cnet-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.cnet.com/google-amp/news/disney-details-disney-plus-international-release-compatible-devices/ Good review.

"It was the first time Bob had seen the movie, and, well, he didn't like it." In the film, Sasha Baron Cohen's character, Borat, falls for the "Baywatch" actress and travels the U.S. on a quest to ask her to marry him. "Bob started screaming at Pam, saying she had humiliated herself and telling her, 'You're nothing but a whore! You're a slut! How could you do that movie?' — in front of everyone. It was very embarrassing," the source said. "Pam thought he could have a sense of humor about the movie. She was in on the gag from the very beginning and loved doing the movie. And on the eve of what was supposed to be a very positive thing, he made it an awful night." The far-left don't even watch real time. I'm sure he gets new viewers. IMDb rating jumped from 5.6 to 6.7 since Thursday. Still many fake 1* votes and reviews. Crook is a loon if he thinks BD is no better than DVD.
