October 21st, 2011 Press Release
August 3rd, 2012 P-P-P-Press R-R-R-Release
Former theatrical film director Bryan Singer has two careers. His fantasy career that exists on the Internet filled with endless wonderment and fantastic tales about him directing the likes of "Logan's Run", "Excalibur", and "Battlestar Galactica"... and his real career in the real world not amounting to a hill of beans. Bryan Singer's career (or quite frankly what is left of it after the failure of "Superman Returns") now resembles a never ending Republican presidential campaign filled with one endless lie and contradiction after another. Bryan Singer has the "Republican Schtick" down to a tee, going so far as ignoring what he previously said on recorded videotape. Counting on the passage of time to fade from everyone's memory what he previously said.
Just three months ago, on August 3rd, 2012, Bryan Singer was claiming (in the press release above) that "Battlestar Galactica" was on track. Not so, we have learned three months later.
The fantastic tale of Bryan Singer's imaginary accomplishments in cinema exist only on the Internet. In the real world, this is what Bryan Singer has not accomplished...
1. Six Billion Dollar Man
2. Battlestar Galactica
3. The Munsters (TV series)
4. Logan's Run
6. Bob Fosse mini series (HBO)
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: Days of Future Past (Abandonment Pending)
Yes, what Bryan Singer's career really consists of in the real world, is this long list of aborted projects he announced and abandoned consecutively. Aborted projects of all shapes and sizes. Aborted theatrical films, aborted mini-series, and aborted television productions. The question is not only why has Bryan Singer been making these fake press releases and announcements (all displayed in the list above), but why is he continuing to make these fake press releases and announcents with his latest..."X-Men-Days of Future Past."
The question then becomes, who or what organization is repeatedly distributing these legitimate looking, fake press releases and announcements on Bryan Singer's behalf?
Bryan Singer has been doing this for so long that he apparently thinks that no one has caught on yet, that he is repeatedly doing nothing more than making empty headed press releases and announcements with no follow through. He apparently thinks that no one has caught on yet, that he and this unnamed and fraudulent "Press Release Organization" of his, spend more time on the Internet trying to build a fake career for Bryan Singer, than trying to build a real career for Bryan Singer in the real world with actual physical accomplishments. He apparently thinks that no has caught on yet, that after he makes one of these fake announcements of his, he waits a year in the hopes that the previous announcement will have faded from everyone's memory by that time, and then he makes another one.
One doesn't have to be an expert in how Hollywood does business to realize that Bryan Singer would not be given so many opportunities (in the list above) by Hollywood, after the failure of "Superman Returns."
Bryan Singer also would not be offered the opportunity to direct "X-Men: Days of Future Past" after the failure of "Superman Returns", even if he did direct the first two "X-Men" movies. Bryan Singer would also not be given the opportunity to direct "X-Men: Days of Future Past" if every project in the above list (all 15 of them thus far) had been abandoned by him prior to the beginning of pre-production, if all of the projects had actually been in physical production.
In the last decade, these are Bryan Singer's actual accomplishements in the real world:
1. Directing the dud "Superman Returns"
2. A producer (one of many) on "House"
3. Directing the "Mockingbird Lane" pilot for NBC-TV.
4. Directing the dud "Valkyrie."
5. Directing "Magnum Gold "Ice Cream" commercials.
6. Producing or consulting on some http://www.youtube.com series called "H+."
7. Directing "X-Men 1, 2"
That's it. The Bryan Singer in the real world in which we all live has accomplished very little cinematically dating back to the 1990s, and is presently leaning heavily towards permanent, uneventful work in television. Sitcoms and television commercials. You don't have to be a career counselor to realize that Bryan Singer is headed (involuntarily) towards a permanent future doing various, miscellaneous projects for television in general, NBC-TV, SyFy Channel, and perhaps the Disney Channel.
It will be interesting to see what Bryan Singer's next press release will be 1 year from now when it will be revealed that he never directed "X-Men: Days of Future Past."
