UPDATE 9:30 AM: Warner Bros is now telling me that its outside non-studio spokeswoman failed to tell me the whole and accurate story about the process that led to the studio taking down its offensive Gangster Squad trailer this morning.

Then, at 5 AM, one of the top distribution execs remembered that Warner Bros Gangster Squad trailer was playing loose this weekend timed to the studios The Dark Knight Rises release in about 30% of domestic theaters.

Why should they pull the trailer to a violent shoot-em-up movie?
After all - Hollywood has always told us that sexed up and gory violent movies have no relation to our sexed up and gory violent culture.
I still find it amazing that the liberal Hollywood types who hate guns put so many guns into movies.
It’s interesting that 12 people died, and the media is going nuts. Yet this is the average for weekend killings in Chicago, week after week, which get no national media mention.
The Media doesn’t want comparisons. If there were comparisons, the media would have no “glory.”
You know, I would respect a nonreaction from them more than this kneejerk style garbage we get EVERY SINGLE TIME something bad happens. That might just be me, though.
From Magnet Films upcoming movie “God Bless America.”
A comedy? See the 1:32 mark.
That movie outta go over like a lead balloon.
It’s been pulled from Youtube. Here’s a working link:
Glad I watched the trailer, seeing Sean Penn in it means I won’t pay money even through Emma Stone is a real cutie.
I see Sean Penn is in it.
So, I’ll never watch it.
