Universal Studios & Bryan Singer Have Been Absent From The Summer Movie Months Beginning in 2001. The Summer of 2013 Will Be No Different

 

 
 
                                      
 
 
The entire motion picture industry in Hollywood (and life marching onward and upward) has left behind Universal Studios and Bryan Singer in their theatrical partnership together that has never existed since 2001.

Once again, in the summer of 2013 (for the 12th consecutive summer), Universal Studios & Bryan Singer have absolutely nothing to offer summer moviegoers. Due to their usually expected, combined incompetence, they are left out in the cold, once again.


Universal Studios & Bryan Singer's October 21st, 2011 Press Release. Shouldn't this movie have been ready in time for summer 2013? Oh, that's right. This is one of the many "fake" movie press releases Universal Studios & Bryan Singer routinely make together because the two of them really don't make movies together. Expect their next "fake" press release like the one above in October 2013.

Bryan Singer's Career in The Immediate Future: Directing Sitcom Episodes Under a Pseudonym For The "Disney Channel" and "ABC Family Channel"


My predictions for Bryan Singer's immediate future:

1. If he really is (presently) prepping "X-Men: Days of Future Past" for principal photography, he will eventually be replaced as the director by 20th Century Fox due to him taking too long during the pre-production process ala "Excalibur."

2. The financial and critical failure of "Jack The Giant Slayer" next spring will pretty much roll out the red carpet for Bryan Singer to take up permanent residence as a television sitcom director (under endless pseudonyms) for "The Disney Channel" and "ABC Family Channel"...forever.

3. Expect Bryan Singer's next (fake) "Battlestar Galactica" movie announcement in October 2013.

4. Maybe Bryan Singer will also direct a low budget horror movie or two for the "SyFy Channel?"


5. Maybe Bryan Singer will also direct a low budget Christmas movie or two for "The Hallmark Channel" or "ABC Family?"

Whatever Happened to The Pyramids and Ancient Egypt in Universal Studios "Sham" Renditions of "Battlestar Galactica?"






Having the routine, umitigated gall to label any project they so choose as "Battlestar Galactica" (as Universal Studios loves to do) and then gut the central premise of the original 1978 series (The pyramids and ancient Egypt) out of the proceedings is the equivalent of doing a version of "Star Wars" and removing "The Force" out of the central premise, or doing a version of "Star Trek" and removing "The United Federation of Planets" from the central premise.

Universal Studios sham renditions of "Battlestar Galactica" ("GINO", "Caprica", "Blood & Chrome") have never felt like "Battlestar Galactica" because they haven't been "Battlestar Galactica."

One of the infinite, fundamental incompatabilities that has always existed between the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series and Universal Studios horrific, misguided ownership of the property is that it would take massive amounts of imagination and inspired thinking to revive the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series in such a way where it is done correctly. What Universal Studios has always lacked.

In order to seamlessly tie together a story about a Battlestar fleet representing 12 Worlds (Colonies) with origins in ancient Egypt and the pyramids (which is what "Battlestar Galactica" really is), massive doses of imagination and inspired thinking are necessary. Abilities that Universal Studios, Ronald D. Moore, David Eick, and Bryan Singer will never, ever possess. So, this misguided bunch of Hollywood rejects instead, pursue the easy route in intent and execution by merely slapping the "Battlestar Galactica" brand name onto lazily pastiched together rip-offs of "Blade Runner", "Alien", and every contemporary drama you can think of where the characters wear three-piece business suits.

My fundamental argument all along in Universal Studios having no moral right to own the "Battlestar Galactica" property, is that they don't have the imagination and inspired thinking to own it. ("GINO", "Caprica", and "Blood & Chrome" prove this.) So for logic's sake, they should simply sell the property to someone else. And they should have sold it to someone else decades ago.

Granted, Hollywood is a business where studios rarely sell what they own...but in the case of Universal Studios and their disastrous ownership of "Battlestar Galactica" (an extreme case of negative ownership) going back 34 years, exceptions to the rule do exist in Hollywood where there is such a disastrous incompatibility problem between a studio and what it owns, that only a permanent parting of the ways between a studio (Universal Studios) and a property ("Battlestar Galactica") could ever hope to remedy the problem.

Universal Studios is the corporate home of "Maury Povich", "Blind Date", and "Mockingbird Lane." The "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series (on the other hand) involves a Battlestar fleet ambushed by the Cylon Empire, and driven from their 12 Worlds in search of their ancestral home with ties to ancient Egypt and the Pyramids. See the fundamental incompatibility there?

The "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series is a plate of caviar owned by corporate street urchins living in a slum.

NBC-Universal Has Repeatedly Proven That it is The People Working For Them & Making The Bad Decisions, And Not "Battlestar Galactica" Itself, That is The Problem



"Battlestar Galactica" would be a thriving, "Tent Pole Juggernaut" right now if NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel did not own it. It would be the third, legitimate alternative for Science Fiction fans right behind "Star Wars" and "Star Trek", if NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel had never owned it.

"Battlestar Galactica" is a dead property right now not because of the property itself, but because NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel is a thoroughly broken and dysfunctional corporation incapable of keeping its business / corporate prejudices away from "Battlestar Galactica." They have never liked this property from day one and have spent 34 years abusing it in endless ways because of it. Such as...

1. Universal Studios not trying hard at all to try and sell "Battlestar Galactica" to NBC-TV or CBS-TV after it was cancelled by ABC-TV in 1979.

2. Universal Studios hacking the series to bits in poorly edited and spliced together television movies in the fall of 1980.

3. Universal Studios putting out shitty VHS tape releases of the series in 1986 with poor image quality. Additionally, only half of the episodes were released and not the best ones.

4. Universal Studios consciously never acknowledging the 10 year anniversary of the show in September 1988 and every 10 year period after that.

5. Universal Studios spending the entire decade of the 2000s in flat out, stealth marketing war against the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series and the general public primarily (because the general public liked the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series instead of Ron Moore's crap) on the old http://www.scifi.com/galactica forum.

6. Universal Studios repeatedly issuing fraudulent press releases of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series returning theatrically in 1999, 2001, 2009, and 2011.

7. Universal Studios consciously issuing a defective DVD set of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series in October 2003 ("Battlestar Galactica - The Complete Epic Series") with clearly visible cracked discs sitting in the DVD trays, discs freezing while playing because of too much content on the double sided discs, and the pilot episode not being digitally remastered as the box claimed.




 
 October 21st, 2011 Press Release


Universal Studios routinely issues fake press releases such as this in the hopes that they will be forgotten a few years later. Their "Reverse Psychology / Corporate Philosophy" towards "Battlestar Galactica" clearly isn't working.

 
August 3, 2012 "Whatever it Was" from Bryan Singer

Bryan Singer has become such an embarrassment and a buffoon (to Hollywood and all things Science Fiction) at this point that the least of his problems is trying to get a "Battlestar Galactica" project off the ground, but rather trying to find any employment at all in Hollywood after the failure of "Superman Returns."

During those all too frequent moments when Universal Studios routinely musters enough audacity and unmitigated gall to come up with any sort of shit project with the "Battlestar Galactica" brand name attached to it, the projects are repeatedly handed over to the same old, wrong people for the job (Ronald D. Moore, David Eick), or repeatedly handed over to a former director whose career is pretty much dead in Hollywood forever (Bryan Singer), with the entire catastrophic enterprise overseen by the same old idiotic, executives at Universal Studios / SyFy Channel who have clearly never liked the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series in the first place. And it clearly shows in the sub-standard projects they keep releasing ("GINO", "Caprica", "Blood & Chrome")

"Blood & Chrome" recently failed commercially and is headed for obscurity along with Bryan Singer's "H+" http://www.youtube.com series because instead of being "Battlestar Galactica", it was a pastiche of the entire Ridley Scott universes seen in "Blade Runner" and "Aliens", alot of "Space: Above and Beyond" thrown in, with not one original or inspired idea to be found anywhere. This is the way corporate executives think, and this is especially the way the broken and dysfunctional NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel corporate executives think as they repeatedly hold personal vendettas against the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.

The only way "Battlestar Galactica" will ever work commercially is if it is re-presented as it originally was in the 1978 series, removing the cheesy elements mandated by the "ABC-TV Standards & Practices" Department.

And oh yes...Get this property the hell away from NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel once and for all.

There is Zero Evidence That "20th Century Fox" Hired Bryan Singer to Direct "X-Men: Days of Future Past"




http://www.boxofficemojo.com/schedule/?view=distributor&id=fox.htm

There is a listing for an untitled "X-Men" movie which must be "X-Men: Days of Future Past", but Bryan Singer is not listed as a replacement director for Matthew Vaughn. And since this "upcoming release listing" from 20th Century Fox goes into 2016, we can safely conclude that this list is current.

Once again, the only claim we have that Bryan Singer has been signed as the director of a multi-million dollar movie (after the failure of "Superman Returns"), is an endless barrage of press releases from him (and / or his publicity machine) that are always highly suspicious to begin with.

And once again, why is it Bryan Singer is always the only (former) theatrical director in Hollywood to make so many press releases so fequently? Joss Whedon, James Cameron, Ridley Scott, and Peter Jackson never feel the need to do it. Why does Bryan Singer always feel the need do it? Press releases that thus far have led absolutely nowhere for Bryan Singer.

Bryan Singer is claiming to be the current director of "X-Men: Days of Future Past", but we have heard this (all too familiar and overly played) song 17 times before from Bryan Singer....


"The Official List of Projects Announced by Bryan Singer via Fake Press Releases That He Never Made - Volume 1"

1. Six Billion Dollar Man
2. Battlestar Galactica

3. The Munsters (TV series)
4. Logan's Run
5. Excalibur
6. Bob Fosse mini series (HBO)
7. 2012
8. Sellevision
9. X-Men: Last Stand
10. Jack The Giant Killer
11. Star Trek
12. The Prisoner
13. Wolverine 2
14. X-Men 3
15. Aim High
16. X-Men: First Class
17. X-Men: Days of Future Past (Abandonment Pending)
18. Freedom Formula: Ghost of The Wasteland

It's a safe bet that "20th Century Fox" isn't even aware of the fact that they supposedly hired Bryan Singer to direct "X-Men: Days of Future Past." If a high ranking executive from "20th Century Fox" were to read this post, it would be news to them.

The world isn't suffering from amnesia yet...

I Suspect That "Jack The Giant Slayer" Will Help Bryan Singer Make The Permanent Transition to Television Sitcom Director


 
 
http://screenrant.com/jack-giant-slayer-trailer/


 
 
 
Will the apparently underwhelming "Jack The Giant Slayer" pave the way for more installments of "Mockingbird Lane" from (television sitcom & television commercial) director Bryan Singer?
 

 
 
Will we be seeing the further adventures of "Magnum Gold Ice Cream" commercials from sitcom director Bryan Singer?

Some Suggestions For The Next Batch of Movies Bryan Singer Could Announce via Fake Press Releases and Then Abandon







Keeping with the spirit of how Bryan Singer loves to announce his intent (via fake press releases) of directing remakes of classic Science Fiction movies (and then he ultimately never makes or directs them), I thought that the following three movies would be perfect for the next batch of classic Science Fiction movies Bryan Singer could announce via fake press releases and then never make them.

Of course, Bryan Singer won't be able to "not make" these movies until he's finished "not making" his latest..."X-Men: Days of Future Past."

1. The Omega Man - Although remade starring Will Smith as "I am Legend", the remake somehow missed the mark. However, "The Omega Man" starring Charlton Heston has all of the classic dramatic ingredients Bryan Singer could really wrap his directorial instincts around...."and not make."

2. The Questor Tapes - Gene Roddenberry's extremely promising tv movie / television pilot left viewers hanging in 1974 when it ended, promising a television series continuation (that never materialized) at the end of the movie. Bryan Singer too, can leave everyone hanging by announcing (via fake press release) a theatrical continuation of this promising television movie...and then "not make it."

3. The Gargoyles - This 1972 television movie was the first project for the late, great monster maker Stan Winston and his creature shop. Wouldn't it be an honor to the memory of Stan Winston if Bryan Singer announced his intent to remake this movie (via fake press release), and then ultimately "not make" the movie?

When Bryan Singer Burns Himself Out on "Twitter", Tweeting About The "X-Men DOFP" Movie He Will Never Direct




...His real jobs in the television industry will always be waiting for him...


 

1. Directing "Magnum Gold Ice Cream" Commercials.


 
2. Maybe directing the tv movie sequel to "Mockingbird Lane" for a Halloween 2013 airing.
 
 
                                     
 
3. And maybe directing an episode or two of "Misty's Magical Mountaintop."






How Many "Tweets" Will it Take on "Twitter" Before Bryan Singer's Followers Realize That He Really isn't Directing "X-Men: Days of Future Past?"



The world may never know...

Not Only Would Paramount Pictures & J.J. Abrams Have Made This Movie 11 Years Ago, But They Would Also Be Working On The 3rd Sequel By Now

 
 
 

"October 21st, 2011 Press Release." Universal Studios and Bryan Singer obviously feel that 13 months is sufficient time for the general public to have forgotten all about this press release and thus the two of them have moved on like they always do.


Bryan Singer's August 3rd, 2012 "Stuttering" follow-up to the above press release. I guess what Sigmund Freud said is true. Some people "stutter" when they lie.

Theatrical Film Director J.J. Abrams & Paramount Pictures Come Through With What Bryan Singer and Universal Studios Have Always Failed to Provide....




....An actual theatrical trailer for a "Tent Pole Science Fiction Movie."

And gee, isn't this interesting? Not one premature press release fraudulently announcing this movie from J.J. Abrams and Paramount Pictures as what Bryan Singer and Universal Studios have loved to do for the past 13 years with "Battlestar Galactica."

And not one self-boasting "Tweet" on "Twitter" from J.J. Abrams as what Bryan Singer loves to do.

J.J. Abrams and Paramount Pictures just went ahead and made this thing!!

Do you think that this is indicative of the fact that Universal Studios and Bryan Singer suffer from a severely dysfunctional work ethic?

It's Not Difficult to Imitate What Bryan Singer is Tweeting on "Twitter", Grandiose Claims And All




"Finished scouting locations today for X-Men: DOFP. Montreal looks good."

"On the casting couch with Scarlett Johannson. She looks good."

"Script isn't written yet but I've already recruited my former costume designer from X1 & X2."

"Had a little din-din with my favorite friends today at our favorite restaurant."

"I sure am busy with X-Men: DOFP."

"Woke up this morning and immediately began thinking about X-Men: DOFP. I really did."

"Put on my socks and am still thinking about it."

"I really am in post-production with Jack The Giant Killer. I really am."

"Looking to June 2014 for the release of X-Men: DOFP."

"I really am making a movie this time after 18 aborted previous attempts. I really am. You really can believe me this time, because I'm tweeting it on Twitter."

Imitating what Bryan Singer is tweeting on Twitter is easier than I thought. Anybody can do it!!

Universal Studios Corporate Interpretation of "Battlestar Galactica" Continues to Be "Top Gun" Pureed Through The "Space: Above & Beyond" Blender



Universal Studios is the only studio on the face of the Earth cerebrally deficient enough in its corporate thinking to make "Battlestar Galactica" this boring, uninvolving, and pastiched together from every Ridley Scott movie ever made, "Top Gun", and "Space: Above and Beyond."

Of course, this nonsense really isn't "Battlestar Galactica." But by golly, Universal Studios will always stick to its demographic and marketing data sheets through thick & thin every time they waste their corporate time in making something supposedly set in outer space with the "Battlestar Galactica" logo slapped on it.

This pile of donkey dung is left over and warmed over nonsense from Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" series, a failed corporate interpretation of "Battlestar Galactica" that repeatedly proved to be a an epic money loser of infinite proportions a decade ago for NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel.

But you see, corporate studio people never learn lessons, because corporate studio people are cerebrally challenged. So they (Universal Studios) keep regurgitating nonsense like this every decade or so slightly tweaked here and there to try and prove to themselves that they were never wrong in the first place for putting garbage like this on the air.

Reiterating the only time I was ever in agreement with Glen A. Larson, this sham take on "Battlestar Galactica" is "lazy scriptwriting with everyday clothing and items trying to be passed off as Science Fiction."

Forget "X-Men: Days of Futures Past." Another Likely Venue Where Bryan Singer Will Pop Up Next...



Directing toy commercials. A very likely next career step for Bryan Singer immediately after directing "The Munsters Halloween Special 2012" for NBC-TV.

The Frequent Necessity of Having to Bring Bryan Singer's Fledgling Career Back Down to Earth




Bryan Singer has two careers:

1. His imaginary, superstar career (invented by him and his publicity people) existing solely on the Internet where he has directed the movies "Excalibur", "Logan's Run", and "Battlestar Galactica" among others. 

2. And his real career in the real world in which we all live. Nosediving steadily since the failures of "Superman Returns" and "Valkyrie." 

His real career in the real world in which we all live, which has followed the following trajectory without fail:

a. "Superman Returns" failed in 2006.

b. "Valkyrie" failed in 2008.

c. A steady increase in television work as a consequence of both theatrical failures. Directing "Mockingbird Lane" for NBC-TV, directing "Magnum Gold" ice cream commercials, and producing the largely forgotten "H+" mini-sode series for http://www.youtube.com.

e. Presently boasting to anyone who will listen on http://www.twitter.com, that he has begun production on "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

Perhaps I should begin "twittering" all of the people that Bryan Singer has been "twittering" on http://www.twitter.com, in order to remind them that Bryan Singer has boasted 18 consecutive times in the past about beginning production on various projects, only to ultimately fail to make any of them. And perhaps these people also need to be reminded that Bryan Singer has previously abandoned 4 consecutive "X-Men" related productions. (Highlighted in blue in the list below.)

"The Official Bryan Singer List of Abandoned Movie & Television Productions Volume 1"

1. Six Billion Dollar Man
2. Battlestar Galactica

3. The Munsters (TV series)
4. Logan's Run
5. Excalibur
6. Bob Fosse mini series (HBO)
7. 2012
8. Sellevision
9. X-Men: Last Stand
10. Jack The Giant Killer
11. Star Trek
12. The Prisoner
13. Wolverine 2
14. X-Men 3
15. Aim High
16. X-Men: First Class
17. X-Men: Days of Future Past (Abandonment Pending)
18. Freedom Formula: Ghost of The Wasteland

Yes, this list is Bryan Singer's imaginary career on the Internet created by him and his publicity people. One thing is certain. This list will only be getting bigger and bigger....

Perhaps the reason why I am so passionate about bringing this information to mainstream awareness, is because I strongly believe that all Science Fiction / Fantasy fans all over the world deserve better than this. They deserve better than to repeatedly have the 21st Century Medicine Man / Con Artist known as Bryan Singer repeatedly announcing productions that he already knows (well in advance) he will never make.

Bryan Singer seriously needs to get into another line of work since he obviously isn't making it as a Science Fiction / Fantasy film director, and he is no longer worthy of the attention of the "Comic Book Convention Crowd." He dropped off of their radar a long time ago in terms of having any shred of legitimacy and respectability.

When Bryan Singer Abandons "X-Men: Days of Future Past" as The Director...


 

...There will be no formal announcement that he has done so. But it's a safe bet that his next project immediately following "Mockingbird Lane" will be something along these lines...

 

After all, "Misty's Magical Mountaintop" will always need weekly episodic directors.

Bryan Singer is Tweeting "X-Men: Days of Future Past" Production Details?




http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/JoshWildingNewsAndReviews/news/?a=69890


Really? Isn't that just like Bryan Singer? To always be where he is not supposed to be shortly after he announces one of the many movies via press release that he will never make?

So now (once again), instead of being neck deep in the process of hiring an art department to begin designing sets and costumes for "X-Men: Days of Future Past", so everything will be ready to go for the supposed April 2013 begin filming date, Bryan Singer is instead (more than likely, based upon the 18 other movies and television production he never made)...

sitting on his parents sofa at his parents house tweeting make believe stories of how "X-Men: Days of Future Past" is in production.

Whatever happened to this movie supposedly being in production, Mr. Singer? No "Tweets" for this movie? The movie you stated you would be giving your undivided attention to on October 21st, 2011.




October 21st, 2011 Press Release

 
August 3rd 2012 Update on the above movie, Mr. Singer? What a difference 13 months and 3 months makes in your claims, doesn't it Mr. Singer? Is your "Stuttering" code for something, Mr. Singer? As in your Battlestar movie (for the third consecutive time in a decade)...is vaporized.

Care to catch up on some light reading, Mr. Singer?

http://www.grantland.com/blog/hollywood-prospectus/post/_/id/35894/does-excalibur-wolverine-2-x-men-first-class-director-bryan-singer-really-want-to-make-movies

This is the way I suspect things are going to go, Mr. Singer....

1. Your Battlestar movie (for the third consecutive time in a decade) is long gone. Vaporized, Ka-put.

2. "X-Men: Days of Future Past" isn't (supposedly) due in theaters until summer 2014. A year and a half in your make believe career on the Internet is a long time, isn't it Mr. Singer? During the next year and a half  Mr. Singer, you will have plenty of time to ultimately abandon "X-Men: Days of Future Past", and announce (via press release) at least a dozen additional movies and television productions that you will never make. Have no fear, Mr. Singer. Because I will be standing by to add them to your ever growing list of abandoned productions....

I have a hunch, that "X-Men: Days of Future Past" (if it is made at all) will be ultimately directed by one of the following...

1. Joe Johnston
2. Peter Jackson
3. Joss Whedon
4. Christopher Nolan
5. James Cameron
6. Steven Spielberg
7. Shawn Levy

While Bryan Singer will continue tweeting his friends on Twitter and issuing press releases that are a load of malarkey.

Whenever Television / Movie Executives Get Involved in The Creative Process, Bad Things Happen




Whenever television / studio executives get involved in the creative development of a television series or movie...bad things happen. Back in 1977, when the "Spiderman" tv series was in production, network executives at CBS-TV mandated a change in Spiderman's uniform to include a clearly visible and bulky web shooter and belt, interrupting the flow of one of the best superhero costumes ever designed.

In 2003, idiotic executives at NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel mandated a horrific looking change in the visual appearance of the "Battlestar Galactica" spaceship.

You Wouldn't Have to Look Hard or Far to Find Anyone in Hollywood Who Has More "Clout" Than Bryan Singer


 
Even Seth MacFarlane has more clout than Bryan Singer. 
 
 
 
Seth MacFarlane has more upward mobility in Hollywood than Bryan Singer does and here's why...
 
 
1. Seth MacFarlane has his own animation empire now. Bryan Singer has no empire of any sort.

2. Seth MacFarlane can put "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica Series" into an episode of "Family Guy" anytime he wants to. Even if the new "Galactica" footage Seth MacFarlane put into "Family Guy"
was animated (a cartoon), and designed to spoof the 1978 series, it would still be new "1978 Battlestar Galactica" footage, which is infinitely more than what Bryan Singer could ever do.

Slightly Tweaking My Earlier Predictions As to Where Bryan Singer's Career is Headed in The General Direction of Oblivion




1. Bryan Singer will continue to have a formal / informal business relationship with NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel where either nothing gets done at all (the "Battlestar" movie Singer has announced and never made beginning in 2001), or nothing of any pop culture significance gets done (The "Munsters" television pilot.)

2. Bryan Singer will continue to announce in press releases the movies and television productions he will never make:

"The Official Bryan Singer List of Abandoned Movie & Television Productions Volume 1"

1. Six Billion Dollar Man
2. Battlestar Galactica

3. The Munsters (TV series)
4. Logan's Run
5. Excalibur
6. Bob Fosse mini series (HBO)
7. 2012
8. Sellevision
9. X-Men: Last Stand
10. Jack The Giant Killer
11. Star Trek
12. The Prisoner
13. Wolverine 2
14. X-Men 3
15. Aim High
16. X-Men: First Class
17. X-Men: Days of Future Past (Abandonment Pending)
18. Freedom Formula: Ghost of The Wasteland

3. Bryan Singer will continue his gradual, permanent shift to television projects where the projects he directs will be nothing to write "grandma" home about. Usng the following as an example...



I definitely see Bryan Singer as a future sitcom director for the likes of ABC Family and Disney Channel.

5. I'll give the World Wide Web and everyone who posts on "Battlestar Galactica" bulletin boards another 5 years to catch up with me and realize that Bryan Singer is engaging in a conscious pattern of repeatedly announcing movie & television productions and then abandoning them.

You Mean...Bryan Singer Never Showed Up On The "Favorite Director to Direct a 'Star Wars' Movie" List?



http://movies.msn.com/movies/article.aspx?news=773129

My oh my!! Look who is conspicuously absent from the above list. Bryan Singer isn't anyone's favorite director to helm a "Star Wars" movie.

Bryan Singer has been too busy steering every fairly recent genre movie he has ever been associated with straight into the abyss of "Development Hell."

And his last genre theatrical film from 6 years ago (Superman Returns) was badly received.

Can we assume then, that Bryan Singer won't be making as many appearances at Comic Con?

In The Minds of Universal Studios & Bryan Singer, After a Year Passes, Press Releases Such as These Never Existed

 
 
October 21st, 2011 Press Release



Bryan Singer's August 3rd, 2012 P-P-P-Press R-R-R-R-Release Update


Universal Studios & Bryan Singer operate under a "Con Game System" whereby mass amnesia of the general public is repeatedly counted on for their mutual benefit. The two of them count on the notion that their B.S. press releases from the previous year will be forgotten. This is the central premise upon which Universal Studios & Bryan Singer repeatedly operate.

It's not hard to envision, is it?

Universal Studios & Bryan Singer: (Both looking at their wrist watches) "Well, it's been 1 year. Let's make another press release (announcing a completely different movie) in the hopes that the general public will have forgotten about our "Battlestar" press release from the previous year."

Of course, a year after that, Universal Studios & Bryan Singer resume their Bi-ennial "Battlestar" movie announcements.

Deciphering All Too Familiar Phrases In a Typical "Bryan Singer Press Release" And Revealing What They Really Mean




http://www.craveonline.com/film/articles/199001-bryan-singer-will-direct-x-men-days-of-future-past

quote - "Thank you, 20th Century Fox, for sparing us fans the long, arduous, drawn-out process of finding a new director for X-Men: Days of Future Past after Matthew Vaughn left the production last week. Are there better directors out there for this project? Possibly. Some might even say definitely, but we'd rather the issue be settled, thank you very much, than risk opening the field of candidates up to Brett Ratner again.
Yes, Bryan Singer has returned to the director's chair of the franchise that he spawned in the first place. His early films have problems, but put it in perspective: Singer was defining the superhero movie genre long before there were tons of examples of how to do it right. There were bound to be missteps (toads getting hit by lightning, Storm's hair, the first interpretation of Sabretooth), but Singer dared to take the comic book characters seriously, and his efforts paid off. Sure enough, the moment he left the series, and Brett Ratner took over, the whole thing fell apart into the usual mish-mash of nonsensical plotlines and pointless action sequences. And sure enough, when he came back as a producer on X-Men: First Class, the franchise became a bastion of quality once again.
Deadline is reporting that Bryan Singer's contract is a done deal, implying that the production of the newest X-Men film, which would seem to adapt the classic comic book storyline about a mutant going back in time to prevent a tragedy that leads to the genocide of their species, will continue without much delay. The film is expected to be released on July 18. 2014. - "unquote"

1. "Bryan Singer has returned to the director's chair."

Translation: Bryan Singer has not returned to the director's chair.

2. "Bryan Singer's contract is a done deal."

Translation: Bryan Singer's contract is not a done deal. No contract was ever signed.

3. (This movie) "will continue without much delay."

Translation: Every barricade and obstacle imaginable will be cooked up by Bryan Singer to steer this movie straight into "Development Hell" during the course of the next year.

4. "The film is expected to be released on July 18th, 2014."

Translation: This film will never be made or released by Bryan Singer. In the fall of 2013, when Bryan Singer feels that sufficient time has passed fading this press release from everyone's memory, he will announce yet another movie he will never direct. If "Days of Future Past" is made at all, Bryan Singer will not be the director.

If This Were The Early 1980's, Bryan Singer Could Leave Behind The Failures of "Superman Returns" & "Valkyrie", to Be a Full Time "Music Video" Director For MTV



 
 

Circa 2012, Bryan Singer's only career options appear to be NBC-TV, SyFy Channel, and Disney Channel.

The Latter Half of Bryan Singer's Career as a Movie Director (Astutely Criticized by The Author of This Article)...


 
 
....Illustrates Why I Believe Bryan Singer is Showing Up in The Television Industry More and More Frequently....
 

http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/bryan-singer-will-direct-x-men-days-of-future-past/


quote- "Bryan Singer is returning to the director's chair to helm X-Men: Days of Future Past, the sequel to last year's X-Men: First Class. Singer previously directed both X-Men and X2: X-Men United before handing off the franchise to Brett Ratner with X-Men: The Last Stand in 2006.
First Class helmer Matthew Vaughn was originally set to return, but departed the project last week and at the same time Singer was rumored to be filling in.
Vaughn has remained on board as producer along with screenwriter Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner with plans still to begin filming early 2013 for a July 18, 2014 release. Should pre-production go smoothly it sounds like it will all be feasible considering the screenplay sounds as if it is already locked and ready for production.
Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence are expected to return for the film.
If I was ever going to be able to muster any kind of excitement for this franchise, which has merely become decent ever since X2, which remains the best of the franchise so far, I guess Singer returning is a bright spot. However, Singer's work since X2 is hardly confidence inspiring considering both Valkyrie Superman Returns were both subpar features and Warner's delaying of Jack the Giant Slayer from June of this year all the way to March 1, 2013 isn't exactly the best of news." - unquote

By the way, this press release supposedly announcing "X-Men: Days of Future Past" is no more legitimate than the dozens of other press releases fanned out over the years claiming Bryan Singer is the director of something theatrical.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" will fall by the wayside 1 year from now when Bryan Singer will announce yet another movie he will never direct.

If Universal Studios Decided Long Ago Not to Make a "Battlestar" Movie, Then Why Are They Issuing Press Releases (With Bryan Singer) Every Two Years?


 

...Aside from the fact that it's Universal Studios sick sense of humor...
