Skip to comments.Inside Fox's strategy to market 'Love, Simon,' the first film of its kind...[Teen Homosexuality]
Posted on 03/16/2018 10:39:35 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
..."The brilliance of the marketing for 'Love, Simon' lies in its honesty and in not shying away from the fact that the film is a gay teen romantic comedy," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for online measurement company ComScore. "While many films that have gay themes or a LGBTQ subtext often hide those elements in order to obscure the true message of the movie in order to make the film more 'commercial' or 'mainstream,' this film is rightly and innovatively celebrating and embracing its themes and point of view."

It won’t need our hope. It will fail most miserably on its own.
Pull my thinger..er, finger.
At some point this incessant drumbeat of force fed politics is going to greatly turn off and diminish the available audience.
ESPN has noticed it; but the main purveyors of entertainment have not, yet.
Not shocking enough. His “big ass secret” is that he’s gay? It will fail.
Hardly the first such film.
Look at film festival entries.
Has there ever been a sitcom with homosexual characters or homosexual themes that has succeeded?
Everyone involved in this needs to be beaten until they scream. In the 1950s, this would have gotten all involved put into jail.
This is sick, and beyond that it is just stupid. What is there idea of a target audience for a movie about a homosexual boy teenager wanting to find another homosexual boy teenager to do what homosexuals do?
I can identify no target audience (except the 1% of mentally ill people known as homosexuals) who would likely pay to see this.
Not only sick, but financially stupid.
It may make some money, but nothing like its producers are hoping for.
If it does poorly, the activists will blame homophobia.
Isn’t it possible to just not want to see such a movie?
I’m not homophobic or bigoted, I just don’t want to see a homosexual themed movie.
I never saw Brokeback either.
first major studio flick.
Wow. Talk a bout a niche market...
"Will & Grace" comes to mind.
Money before the welfare of our kids. Nice. I hope they lose zillions on this trash.
100% agree. Let the market decide.
They just ain’t gonna’ stop, are they?
Which BTW is AWFUL.
I think "Will and Grace" was considered successful, and I am told that one of it's main characters is a homosexual, but I don't know for sure, i've never watched a bit of it.
"Are you being served" was a British sitcom (from the 1970s) that lightly touched on the subject and featured a prominent character who was portrayed as probably homosexual. It was an ongoing bit of humor for them to speculate whether "Mr Humphries" was really "gay" or just effeminate.
Will there be discussion of rimming, felching, hooking up in public bathrooms, the myriad of diseases transmitted by the fecal oral route, shortened lifespans and child abuse by homo sex offenders? Or will all of the actual behavior be hidden in the closet?
