    Is the bottom the total for the side and the 6,500 for the specific film? I can’t see that on mobile.

    My favorite film, The Social Network, has Kevin Spacey as a producer. Man, that sucks.

    LOTR also has Harvey Weinstein

    I don't think he functionally had anything to do with the LOTR films that were released. He had the rights at an earlier point and ended up being owed an EP credit / a shitload of money from only the first film in the trilogy, Fellowship of the Ring. His name wasn't anywhere on the last two.

    * Edited to add that I know it's kind of a fine distinction , and a bit 'inside baseball' Hollywood wise, but I do feel better knowing he had nothing to do with them. I can't find any articles about it now because so much else has been written about him recently, but I believe they just had to cut him a multi-million dollar check from a percentage of FOTR's gross, and even that they contested in court for a while before paying .

    Not only is that absolutely ridiculous as a justification for his racism in real life, that character himself is definitely racist and that’s a huge point of the movie.

    Learning he went there and seeing how Jesus-y his posts have been with his new engagement has been such a bummer.

    Going to an anti-LGBT church is a bummer but why would it bum you out that him and his fiancé have their lives focused on their religion instead of faking it?

    I don’t know what you mean by faking it, but I’m bummed out to learn that anyone is super religious, especially in the tone that they have been. Knowing that it’s this specific one adds to the disappointment.

    I meant “faking it” as in claiming it but then living very contradictory lives, particularly in Hollywood. I’m with you on the fact that them attending an anti-LGBT church is not good (and isn’t very welcoming when it comes how the church should act either which is a different discussion) but I thought it was a breath of fresh air to see someone who isn’t just saying they are Christian in Hollywood but instead lives it out. Some people say it to just save face.

    I just hope he isn’t growing anti-LGBT in the process of being sincere about his beliefs (I didn’t even know about the church he attends until today).

    I think it is just disappointing to be so public about being religious and all that but to just ignore the fact that the church you attend is such an awful institution. That is the issue I see. It makes him implicit in the church's beliefs.

    I agree. Hearing the church news today really dampened my happiness when it came to him being openly devout. If this gains traction I would like him to respond or announce that he is leaving the church. Being in an anti-LGBT church is not a good influence for Christians or non-Christians and he has proven that he has the star power to leave a mark on wherever he stands.
