Did anyone watch Sunday night TV on Fox last night?
The entire night was hosted by the characters from "Robots". (The studio basically took scenes from the movie and redubbed the characters to talk about the upcoming shows.)
Anyway, I just thought the whole thing was just lame. "Robots" is made by 20th Century Fox, the promo was on Fox TV and all of the reviews in the trailer for the movie are by Fox publications. (Not only that, but don't be deceived by the trailer. It shows multiple quotes from the same author throughout. It's a tactic used in trailers nowdays to make it seem more talked about than it is. Bo-ring! )
Someone really wants us to watch and like "Robots".
I've seen Disney try the same tactic on ABC.
I say, wait for the reviews on this one on Rotten Tomatoes. Just go to the reviews and articles section later this week.
I think it's kinda weird to have one company own a studio, TV station, numerous publications and even movie theatres. Too bad the FCC doesn't care about stuff like that... (I'm talking Disney included here...)
