    Hearing Samuel L. Jackson say "Oh I'm sorry, did I..." and not end it with "...break your concentration." was weird. But that definitely looks good.

    Countdown **trailer**

    So fun story. I actually went and saw this with a friend last Saturday. We enjoy watching, what we assume to be, bad horror movies. This absolutely qualified. BUT, and this is a big butt, during the ending of the film, at the peak of the climax, the theater lights flicker on and the screen goes dark. All we hear is screaming and some other sounds. Then nothing. We nervously look to each other and I ask, "Is this part of the movie?"

    It was not. The power went out for about 10 seconds.

    Movie had some decent scares though.

    An avid Dickens fan, Armando Iannucci (the award-winning writer/director of The Thick of It, In the Loop, Veep and The Death of Stalin) adapts here, alongside frequent collaborator Simon Blackwell, employing his comedic mastery and vivid characterizations to bring to life one of Dickens’ most cherished characters in THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD. From birth to infancy, from adolescence to adulthood, the good-hearted David Copperfield is surrounded by kindness, wickedness, poverty and wealth, as he meets an array of remarkable characters in Victorian England. As David sets out to be a writer, in his quest for family, friendship, romance and status, the story of his life is the most seductive tale of all. The film stars Dev Patel in the title role alongside a wealth of British talent including Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi, Ben Whishaw and Paul Whitehouse.

    It actually starts out fairly strong I think, especially given what you expect of it, but it fizzles out about half way through and never recovers. They had a good premise but lacked a good story and so had no idea where to take their idea.

    I think the malevolence of the invisible man from Hollow Man more closely tracks to this version, thus its a sequel/reboot of Hollow Man.

    Things I learned today:

    The Witcher was actually books before it was a video game series.

    hmmmm.

    Which is hilarious, because the author sold the rights CDR for a incredibly measly lump sum, instead of royalties, because he didn't think video games were really big sellers.

    Then had the audacity to claim his book was the reason the Witcher was so popular, when lots of people never heard of the books before the game (myself included)

    This is stupid, the guy created the entire setting, all the characters and plots and intrigue - he's a fantastic author and you're being incredibly disrespectful. No one had heard of A Song of Ice and Fire (aka "the Game of Thrones books") before the HBO show either, some media are just larger than others. Are you prepared to insist that GRRM had nothing to do with why Game of Thrones was so popular, too? That it's "audacious" for an author to take credit for his work?

    Also, what I heard about the rights issue is that he sold the rights a long time ago to make some kind of primitive "play by texting" phone game, and those rights got passed around a lot. It's hardly his fault for thinking that first random phone game wouldn't be a big hit, not understanding how the rights will be sold and resold in the future and not having the foresight to see a media juggernaut a couple decades in advance.

    I was following the first Witcher game fairly early in it's development, so I found out it was a book series pretty much at the same time I found out the game was made (because CD Projeckt were basically just a localization studio at this time, and that was all they had to go on for promotional hype,) even though I never read any of the books until I believe shortly after the release of the second.

    They're pretty good books too, especially the short story omnibuses, which I believe are all set before the main novel series and looks to be where the Netflix series starts at; The opening trailer for the first Witcher game was basically the climax of the first story in The Last Wish, and while I haven't seen a striga, there was a scene with Geralt swinging a chain like he's about to toss it.

    Although I'm not a fan of the series, I knew about ASoFaI before the GoT show, and I assume that Eastern Europe would be far more familiar with the Witcher Series than the West was. But to make sure I hadn't misread, I checked up Wikipedia article and found:
    CD Projekt later approached Sapkowski for rights for the series. They were able to secure the rights for about 35,000 zloty (approximately US$9,500) from Sapkowski, who wanted all the payment up front, rather than through royalties, even though these were offered to him. In a 2017 interview, Sapkowski said that at the time that he had no interest in video games, and was only looking at the deal from a financial benefit standpoint.[

    Looks like he'd been burnt another video game deal, so once bitten, twice shy sort of thing.
    In October 2018, Sapkowski sent notice to CD Projekt demanding he be remunerated for sales of The Witcher video games, asking for more than 60 million Polish złoty (more than US$15 million) representing between about 5% and 15% of the game's revenues over the years. Sapkowski had originally provided the license to CD Projekt based on a lump sum payment, but now believes he is due more since the series has become much more successful than expected. CD Projekt stated that while they had met all obligations on the initial acquisition of the license, they will work amicably with Sapkowski's legal representatives to come to a fair outcome for all parties.[58] By February 2019, CD Projekt worked out a settlement agreement that would provide Sapkowski additional royalties for their video game series, though not as great that Sapkowski had asked for, as to maintain a working relationship with the author for future Witcher projects.

    Honestly though, if the Witcher Video Game hadn't made it so big, I don't expect as much of North America (and possibly Western Europe) would have heard about the series.

    ASOIAF was a big seller before the show existed. Not the insane numbers it hit afterwards, obviously, but it was a giant of the fantasy genre already.

    It is his fault for being bad at negotiating and failing to see what might have occurred down the line by selling those rights. They're his rights to do as he pleased, and he fucked up badly.

    Guys ASOIAF could be a "giant" in the fantasy world and still be completely obscure. I heard about the series when I was in high school, at least three books had been out by then, and I couldn't find the books in a Barnes and Noble. They had to place an order for the books for me.

    The Malazan Book of the Fallen is also a giant in the fantasy world, but go ask some random people if they've ever heard of it. If they make a successful TV show or video game about them, do you think that would change?

    Lastly this guy again sold the rights back in the early 2000s and I'm not going to fault him for not having amazing foresight of 20 years of new media. By his own admission, he feels stupid.
    “I was stupid enough to sell them rights to the whole bunch,” Sapkowski told Eurogamer in an interview. “They offered me a percentage of their profits. I said, ‘No, there will be no profit at all – give me all my money right now! The whole amount.’ It was stupid. I was stupid enough to leave everything in their hands because I didn’t believe in their success. But who could foresee their success? I couldn’t.”
