check out the Sunday Los Angeles Daily News for the best slam article so far on the Warner Bros. Marketing Division's titanic blunder with Iron Giant....Hopefully with this article, the petty nature of in-studio politics will have a cost. this type of exposure will undoubtedly have the upper ranks at Time/Warner wondering exactly what caused them to go over $30-$40 million dollars into the red on an investment that obviously had the potential to bring in a profit of at least $100,000,000! perhaps the quick death of Iron Giant at the box office will not be in vein....our only hope at this point is that the public investors in Time/Warner stock find out and are angered enough to pressure their Board of Directors to investigate this missed opportunity.....to figure out why this film stood out and how exactly their highly paid studio executives allowed that $50 dollar investment to be neglected...........OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!!!!!!!
