    people are having a discussion about actors they don't like and I just really dislike those discussions because it's never for a good reason imo. Like people don't like Zooey Deschanel or Zach Braff or whoever and I think they're great. There's no actors I really dislike for reasons other than being a shitty person irl

    Always do the right thing. Prestigious

    Me with Tobey Maguire (though apparently he is a bit of a dick in real life)

    People hang onto their first impressions of actors forever, whether it was a bad movie or just a performance they didn’t like. Said as someone who has been defending Kristen Stewart’s acting ability since 2007.

    It's an Albany Expression Prestigious

    Jeremy Renner and Bradley cooper always top my list. Not cause i think they suck..but I haven't liked most or any if their movies.

    Actresses? I'd have to think about it

    the closest I get is someone like Jennifer Lawrence, but it's not that I don't like her or anything. I just think she's overrated

    This is my third time watching the entirety of the Larry Sanders Show, and I am starting to think it may be funnier than Seinfeld. The only problem is that it is even more dated than Seinfeld; if you didn't know the celebrities, half of the comedy is lost.

    Larry Sanders is one my all time favorites, I assume "It's Gary Shandling's Show" is also worth my time?

    It isn't on the same level, but still very good.

    Is it really necessary to start promoting a film 15 months in advance?

    Doesn't Disney usually announce things at least that early?

    Yes, we already have release dates for Mulan, Maleficent 2 and Jungle Cruise which are all after the release of Onward

    Just because it's the standard doesn't mean it's necessary.

    I'm just wondering from a financial standpoint. Does marketing for 15 months really garner that much more money at the box office than if they only marketed for half that time?

    Is posting a tweet announcing the name of a new movie really considered marketing or costing them anything? Unless they're marketing it more than that tweet, I don't really see any issue.

    I do kind of wish I could live in the world again where you didn’t really know a movie was coming until you saw a trailer for it.

    But I don’t, and I’m fine with that.

    I don't know if or how studios communicate behind the scenes, but publicly announcing a new movie + release date could signal to other studios to either not use that release date or risk the competition. Studios have to plan their release schedules way ahead of time. It's like a chess game sometimes ha.
