We Can Make An Educated Guess Well In Advance As To How Universal Studios Will Con The Public With Their "Battlestar Galactica" Movie
That's right, Universal Studios. Your con game is already beginning at this early stage of development (what should have been your early stage of development 3 years ago and 10 years ago.) Trying to con the public into believing that the "Battlestar Galactica" movie will be based upon the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series and not Ronald D. Moore's commercially failed turd fest, as is the case in the film clip above.
I have a prediction for you, Universal Studios. If the first frame of your movie begins with an intense camera close-up of the acne scars on Edward James Olmos, with a gradual camera pull-back of him lighting a cigar in a contemporary looking apartment, your movie will be toast. Audiences will immediately begin walking out of the theaters, because they will not be the slightest bit interested in watching "GINO" on the movie screen, just as they weren't the slightest bit interested in watching it on the old Sci-Fi Channel and NBC-TV.
Better be careful in how you market this train wreck of yours, Universal Studios. If you con the public with misleading marketing as you're already apparently doing in the film clip above (the poster and cast photo from the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series) and then not deliver on the two images (the public will punish you severely by taking their business elsewhere.) In short Universal Studios, for your own financial sake, you had best be making a "1978 Battlestar Galactica" movie and not a "GINO" movie.
Besides, the public doesn't like close-up shots of acne scars on giant movie screens.
