All true, but the Gavin Hood point was an example of many things. One, someone who is a great director can still suck without the right control over a big studio film. Similarly, someone who is new to the scene will most likely be walked all over with a big studio film, especially with people like Fox or Sony.

Also, David Fincher did a couple of documentaries, before doing an average Alien film as his first blockbuster, with surprise surprise, Fox. Now sure, Alien 3 is passable, but no where near the quality of Alien and Aliens, and then Seven, one of Finchers follow up movies.

If a first timer has a lot of potential, the odds of them being allowed to spread their wings and fully explore their own abilities with Fox are very slim... With Fox, you get X-Men Origins Wolverine... Without Fox, with people supporting a new director, you get great movies like District 9. I wouldn't put any faith in a new director for this film.
