I think Universal Studios has always had it "ass backwards." You first have to earn money before you can make money and have money. Instead (it would seem), Universal Studios just wants everyone else's money without wanting to lift a finger to earn its own money.
I think this has been one of the notorious secrets behind Universal Studios "Fake Battlestar Galactica Movie Press Releases" dating back to 2001. Universal Studios is more than willing to announce these "Fake Press Releases"....but they absolutely refuse to lift a finger in order to make a "Battlestar Galactica" movie.
Universal Studios wants another studio to make a "Battlestar Galactica" movie for them, while reaping all of the financial rewards via cutting everyone else out, including the external studio that would make the "Battlestar Galactica" movie.
Now, this is the same studio claiming to be bringing the world a "Battlestar Galactica" movie after umpteenth claims since 2001?
Don't make me laugh!!
Even if Universal got off of its lazy rump to begin making this movie, they would end up in monetary dispute with multiple parties from a thousand different directions...If it hasn't been going on already.
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
