    So, David, is it safe to say you turned around on Bright Eyes?

    Remember when all those emails came out from the Sony hack? That’s when i got an impression of them as a Studio – Adam Sandler, Angelina Jolie, James Bond…some nebulous David Fincher project…

    But between SpiderMan, James Bond, and Adam Sandler’s volume of schlock, i got the impression of Sony as just a “let’s mass produce stuff that people will pay for.” Almost like an investment company owned a movie studio. No perspective, no overriding vision.

    FWIW, it’s very rare that an AFI Fest passes without my seeing at least one movie I love that never gets distribution, or not much in the way of release. Off the top of my head…Yourself and Yours, Malgre la nuit, Walking Past the Future, The Liar, The Strange Little Cat…if you really wanna see weird cool movies that won’t play again, they’re there!

      Oh, don’t worry, I do and will see those! Like I said, I love AFI Fest and didn’t want to sound like I was slagging it off. It just makes a good foil for LA Film Festival (RIP).

    Despicable Me/Minions/Secret Life of Pets are all Illumination, not Blue Sky. Blue Sky is the Ice Age films, Rio, Robots, Epic, Horton Hears a Who, Ferdinand and The Peanuts Movie.

    Illumination is owned by Universal, while Blue Sky is owned by Fox.

    Boss Baby was Dreamworks.
