    But it's getting good marketing. I saw their poster at a theater in Mexico recently, the one with the faces coming out of the wall.

    Fox has messed up A LOT of cbms, so I have no doubt that Boone delivered but Fox is one hell of an insecure studio and they werent sure with this product, so they had to interfere, Kinberg included. Dont ever trust studios execs and some producers, they can be a nightmare, disguised as angels.

    I feel bad for the cast. I'm not sure about the director yet if those rumors are true about him kind of being the main problem, but the actors I definitely feel bad for because it's harder for them to avoid being asked about it when they're out promoting other projects.

    I feel even worse for Josh today. He has every right to have creative issues with Fox.

    I wouldn't go that far. We haven't seen his product to know it was worth saving.

    Anyway I love how Fox always saves face lol... "Fox likes the product", BUT, they want to change 50% of it!

    I doubt he delivered.the trailer didn't even feel like source material. NoX-Mansio n, no costumes, wrong tone and it looks cheap.

    that doesnt mean it is a bad movie. Fox and Kinberg agreed on that vision. so its everyone's fault in any case. Boone told them his vision, and Fox agreed. And now Fox isnt happy. f**** them.

    It might not be a bad movie but its a bad adaptation. As bad as Mystique leading the X-Men. And they aren't gonna delay for more than a year if they think its passable. Especially reshoots would just lead to spending more money.

    Fox is a very insecure studio, we should know better by now. They were insecure with X1, they were insecure with Origins, adding 10 cameos and familiar characters and even calling it "X-Men", they were insecure with Deadpool for 7 years... and after XMA numbers, Id bet money they are really insecure with XMDP and NM too, even more with NM since its a new team of non famous mutants, like Wolverine, Storm and co. Fox is this way, trust me.

    Exactly!

    I hope we get the original Boone cut eventually! My money is on I would have loved it!

    If I had any hope for a trilogy. This ends it.

    More like afraid that they won't do well because the films aren't good enough.

    What do you guys think the odds are we'll get a director's cut on blue-ray?

    Does anyone think that Disney will even allow this film or Dark Phoenix to see the light of day? I feel like we'll get the reshoots filmed but then both films will be axed in post-production.

    Disney can't do anything unless the sale is completed before these come out.

    Given that a version has been filmed, I do think they'll air it somewhere, even if it's VOD. It's just a waste of money otherwise. Who knows when or if regulatory approval will happen?

    Good Lord. The films will get released. Maybe in theaters, maybe on streaming.

    There's no way these films won't ever be released, it would be the biggest waste of time, money, and effort in the history of Hollwood. I don't know what more to say, it's almost ludicrous to think this would ever happen.
