  • very sad, but dear entertainment industry, things have changed. You are no longer aloud to make a film that fails and still make money on it. And as for this movie it was so spectacular but, blaming the taxes and canada is a huge stretch, One the most successful series of all time the simpsons subs to india, and its simply because they will work for cheaper. Technology as a whole though is moving at such a rapid rate that not even india will have a job for long. In todays market if you truly have a successful concept, you will make quite a bit more money by your self off of ad revenue than you used to from working for someone or selling tickets.
