    . . .
    New A&E John Gotti docu-series is premiering in January, followed by the Travolta movie release
    in May at Cannes Film Festival.

    John Gotti Jr. is elated. Bursting with excitement . . . or so he says. :whistling:

    John Gotti Jr.:

    "Yes, going to Cannes is devastating!"
    "I always wanted the docu-series to be aired​
    before the movie anyway. CANNES!!!"​

    From TMZ:

    One of the film's executive producers, Keya Morgan, tells TMZ the "Gotti" project was originally supposed to be distributed by Lionsgate Premiere ... a branch of the company that handles smaller, niche releases.
    Morgan says his team believes the movie could do gangbusters in wide release and he even believes Travolta could end up with some hardware on his mantle.
    Travolta's flick was scheduled to hit the screens next week, but Morgan says the new plan is to take it to Cannes or Venice first and then release it in at least 1,000 theaters. The release date is uncertain.​

    Take that you punk!

    Yeah, now they are looking for a new distributor, ten days before the film was scheduled for release.

    Because.....the film has mega blockbuster and Oscars written all over it.

    That's why no distributor has touched it.

    Because they are afraid they can't handle an international release of that order of magnitude.

    They're all running scared because they film's commercial/artistic power has intimidated them.

    That's what Johnny Goodbye Tyler should have done with BATTLEFIELD EARTH. Taken it to Cannes. They would have LUVVVVVVVED it. Standing ovations!

    Okay back to reality: If they are actually stupid enough to screen the movie at Cannes, they are going to be laughed out of the game and ANY possibility of opening day interest in the film is going to be MURDERED by pre-release reviews that thrash and trash the movie.

    There is no way that movie survives screening and reviews before its release.

    They are bluffing. Just posturing and spinning PR in a pathetic attempt to explain why their distributor dropped the film.

    It's a disaster. It's always been a disaster, since the day the deal was made with Travolta to star in a movie about JOHN GOTTI. No "A" director would have ever in a billion years cast an effeminate, "sweet boy" actor in the role of a mafia murderer. And, to make matters worse, Travolta has NEVER been able to pull off a serious/threatening role. He can't even fake or synthesize evil in a character.

    His voice alone (soft, high register) is more than enough to disqualify him as a gruff, gravel-voiced mafia thug.

    What was John Gotti Jr. thinking? !!! LOL

    Well, he was thinking the same thing he was thinking when he ran criminal rackets in the mafia. He was thinking: "Marone! Dis is gunna be sum easy fuckin'money!"

    Well he went to mafia prison after that brainstorm and he's heading to movie prison when this bomb of a movie hits theater.

    Or perhaps there is some dirt coming out...

    Edited to add. By dirt I mean maybe an expose on Travolta and his past treatment of staff and sexual harassment claims. Hollywood has shown they are willing to drop A listers in recent weeks and the current climate only makes it harder to hide the stories. If the movie sucks and new dirt is going to either come out or even old stuff rehashed why even bother taking a chance on a movie with him?

    I think some "dirt" already came out . . . but that was on another thread.
    I'm too young to have participated on that one. (It was sorta x-rated
    and contentious.) Participants fled after a while. :evillaugh:

    I was actually enjoying it but then there was "The Triggering", when forbidden words or ideas were voiced.

    Guilty as charged!

    Mine (and other's) crimes happened after we began discussing Travolta's published 2nd Dynamic Admin Scale.

    Particularly the IDEAL SCENE and STATS (Number of strangers' anuses licked).

    See? I can trigger this thread too. LOL LOL LOL

    I predict mega-blockbuster!

    It's got EVERYTHING going for it. . .

    It's got the star of Battlefield Earth. . .

    Who's a bona fide OT!

    Why golly, it's even got a subliminal "GOTTI-GOTTI command in the title!!!
