He gets to write off the loss on the unsold tickets at face value. Genius move.

Isn't that basically why the Batgirl movie got sunk?

You can't write off unrecognized profits. In both cases, you can write off the cost of production less the profits.

I don't think that I've ever heard any of his songs...

I mean....anyone can TRY to write off anything. Unfortunately for them...the IRS is getting more funding soon

They kill people in demonic rituals at his shows. Hence the surcharge.

No.

It got sunk because the new boss changed HBO's operating parameters.  BG was essentially made as the equivalent of Netflix churn, ie prestige cable TV fare.  Which isn't a knock on it in any way, shape, or form.  But the budget of such things is not going to be anywhere near what a theater movie will get, and that poses constraints on how much is shot, to what quality, and how much special effects love the project gets.*  Except New Boss said they were only showing theater movies from now on.  Which would mean BG would essentially have to be reshot (and re-CGIed) almost in its entirety to bring it up to the level of quality expected by moviegoers, which would cost almost what an entire movie would.  On top of the already spent budget.  At that point, it wouldn't even break even.  So, they canned it.  They can claim the costs they sunk into the film against their income for taxes.  But they can't count theoretical income from it, just what they can prove they already spent.  Which is what every business does.  If you made widgets, you can count the costs of making them against your profits.  But you can't claim you lost the income if the widgets just don't sell.


* Also, DC has a fundamentally different relation ship with WB than Marvel has with Disney.  Marvel is essentially its own studio in Disney.  Marvel asks Disney for $X Bazilliony from Disney and then gets to spend it how they will as long as they keep making the Mouse his cheddar.  No Marvel project has to go up against any of Disney's other content, just other Marvel projects being pitched - and Feige seems to be pretty good about having projects support each other.  So money can be shifted around within Marvel to fiddle with budgets if needed.  But DC is just part of general WB.  So every DC movie is its own project unsupported by the others, competing with both other DC projects and every other WB project.  If Superman CVI: Retelling the Origin Story Again ... On Ice! is doing well, money can't be shifted over to Batman CIII: 240 minutes of the Wayne Parents Dying in Slo-Mo to pick up some slack.  They are independent projects competing for money, not connected projects working together.  So BG being told it had to go big or go home was truly and royally farking it hard in the ass.

Too Long; Didn't Read...they're burning down HBO for the insurance money.

I'd kill to see a movie adaptation of "The Scream." Momma would be proud.

If you're talking about the Skipp/Spector book, I thought I was literally the only person who remembered it.
