This message is for the fans who are angry at Summit movie studio for a recent career move. Why are they angry? Because Summit isn't concerned about the fans of Twilight. They are only concerned about making money.
Summit is a film company. Of course they only care about making money. That's what they're supposed to be concerned about. Actors portray the characters. Special and visual effects make everything seem more real. Directors make sure their film is artistic, and still appeals to its target audience. The movie studio makes sure the film makes money.
This certain actress didn't play that big of a part in the first two films in the Twilight series. This same actress scheduled a film that ended up conflicting with the schedule of the third film. I agree with Summit on this. If she was so passionate to play her character in the third film, then she should've at least told Summit that she was filming another movie around the same time.
Finally, Summit does not have to cater around the fans of Twilight. Warner Bros. certainly didn't cater around Harry Potter fans, so why should Summit bend over backwards for Twilight fans? Because Summit is an independent film studio, founded in 1996, whereas Warner Bros Pictures was founded in 1918? Just because Twilight supposedly "made" Summit (you mean that it is Summit Entertainment's first big hit), doesn't mean it needs to do only what the fans of Twilight wants. They have other movies coming out (Bandslam, Sorority Row, Tekken) and have a film that is in production (Remember Me, Furry Vengeance, Astro Boy, Letters to Juliet). They have other things to do beside help Twilight take over the world.
So, what have we learned today:
- That movie studios are supposed to be concerned with making money.
- The world doesn't revolve around one single person or franchise.
- That Summit Entertainment has other things going on.
Now, have a good day!
