Earlier this year he bookended that record with the live-action film John Carter, […]
There’s a concept in the film industry called drafting. It’s a simple but profitable one. Whenever there’s a hugely anticipated blockbuster with a big marketing push, low-budget film companies will rush out a quick, cheap movie that’s sorta kinda similar in title or theme.
