SPOILERS (?) - Hollywood Reporter Misinformed?

Hollywood Reporter Misinformed?

Quote:
May 22 will see only one opening, but it could be the summer's biggest blockbuster. The film is Paramount and Lucasfilm's "Indiana Jones & the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," and it will face no other wide openings over the Memorial Day weekend that officially kicks off the summer of '08. Directed by Steven Spielberg, it stars Harrison Ford, Ray Winstone, Karen Allen, Cate Blanchett, Shia LaBeouf, Jim Broadbent, John Hurt, Michelle Yeoh and Kate Capshaw. In the fourth episode of the franchise, Ford returns as Indy and travels to the lost city of Atlantis.

OH BOY! One of my big pet peeves in misinformed entertainment reporting. This is the worst example I have ever seen!!!! It would be one thing if this was written a year ago before filming started...But now!!! That absurdly incompetent reporting!

But he got other facts right, meaning he still got latest information. He got all the cast right, even the movie title. Surely doesn't seem like it was written a year ago.

Why would he mix latest facts with very old rumors? And this is Hollywood Reporter, did they ever reported rumors before?

And I thought Australia was notorious for getting their entertainment news misinformed... Seems these guys can't get their facts straight neither.

Seems like they simply got old rumors mixed up in the story.

But still - that's embarassing.

Do we know for sure that these facts are misinformed? Perhaps Yeoh and Capshaw ARE in the movie? Perhaps Atlantis IS in the movie somehow... These things are Above Top Secret as far as Lucasfilm are concerned.

Thank you, Hollywood Reporter, the cheque is greatly appreciated.

Surely I'm not the only one already tired of your anti-American shtick. Show a little regional tolerance. It's an international forum and if you can't put up with cultural differences perhaps there's another forum where your intolerance would be more welcome.

People are different. Deal with it. Your way isn't the only way.

Well, actually a little grammar doesn't make bad! I'm from Italy and I've learned something more... of course it's just a forum... but I prefer to be corrected than keeping mistaking.

It's a regional difference, not a matter of "right and wrong." It's no different than regional accents. If he were harping on others for their accents no one would see that for anything other than intolerance. And that's exactly what he's spouting, intolerance.

Maybe they took Hollywood Reporter's word for it. Maybe it's bogus that Lucasfilm is authorising for publicity. Afterall, Lucas and Spielberg did admit that they did send out the City of the Gods title as a rumour. Just to throw people off. Maybe the "Kingdom" is Atlantis. I do remember reading someone's post that one of the supposed Crystal Skull powers, was like containers of Atlantean knowledge and supertechnology. Maybe that's what is meant by Atlantis.

Perhaps no one noticed but I did try to change the subject back a few posts back! and by the way I'm british and I find 'americanisms' quite charming now lets ALL stop being so prissy about this and get on with the real buisiness at hand eh?
Anyway everyone knows language mutates and developes over time, 'english' is a hodge -podge of all sorts within itself anyway!
