Wow a slight increase even though cinema prices have skyrocketed years. None of which changes anything I said.
The industry is spending more on marketing in a pathetic attempt to compensate.
They could try to make better movies but they seem to think spending more polishing a turd is better.
Maybe get your head out the movie industry's ass before commenting next time.

Thats why they're doing this. The internet has destroyed the movie industry but its not because of piracy.
A few decades ago it took a week or two for most of the public to find out if a movie was bad.
These days people can tweet and rate movies on IMDB & Rotten Tomatoes within minutes of leaving the cinema.
No amount of bought reviews and media hype will work once enough people know its a turd.
They just want more people to see movies before finding out how bad they are.

I find it funny that Hello Games are saying "Please don't spoil it for yourself" when the video spoils nothing that hasn't already been seen before. I suspect they're more concerned that that most people will find it quite a boring game. It just makes them sound like all the AAA games companies pushing embargo'd games trying to maximize pre-orders and sales in the first few days before word of mouth spreads about how shit their game.

Its obviously not a game for everyone. Fans of instant adrenaline filled action probably wont like it. If you're a fan of Elite, sandbox and survival games then you'll probably enjoy it.

I'd bet self-driving car makers will be willing to spend tens/hundreds of millions trying to prove the liability isn't theirs.
I foresee a lot of lobbying from Google etc to change the law regarding compensation or at least making it the car owner's liability.
Victim sues the car owner then car owner is forced into arbitration because of the car software's EULA.
