The GB'16 trailer looks like all the bad modern day SNL cliches rolled up in one. It also screams "written by Hollywood committee" too; a bad cliche storm, things they think are cool (but aren't), and overall just sterile as a comedy.
Minimum: Wait for DVD.
And just how would VR do that if the userbase is small?
And it's not just going to cost $600 to get the OR for the average user, it's going to cost them upwards of over $2000 to get the thing and a system capable enough to run it. For tech that hasn't been proven to have any legs, that's...
Because they knew the film was a lost cause, and tossing in more money was pointless.
I think one reason it failed so hard is that it's just a bad film, but it isn't bad enough to be "So Bad It's Good".
If this story is any indication, his NetFlix films are going to be an order of magnitude worse.
Native actors walk off set of Adam Sandler's Netflix movie [http://metronews.ca/scene/1350275/native-actors-walk-off-set-of-adam-sandlers-netflix-movie/]
I think its a mix of two things;
1-- Attempt to neutralize key re-sellers
2-- Placate idiot governments who still think banning/censoring video games will solve their problems
Everything else is collateral damage.
