Movies Film - General Commander (USA release May 28)

I got a smile on my face whI read that haha. Lionsgate is indeed huge, Absolution was by Lionsgate and I thought End Of A Gun was too.

I hope they take over Attrition too! That would be really great news. But when IMDB says it is by Lionsgate it doesn’t mean it is. They had things wrong before about ATL 2 and Tip Of The Spear.

Yes but those weren't movies that were already finished. Those 2 didn't even start pre-production...

An investment by a major company like Lionsgate to distribute a movie is obviously encouraging, but at the same time, considering the way distribution of movies and other content has changed, I don't feel this an indication in terms of the quality of the project.

I would be prepared to pay significantly more than the current cost of a DVD or online download if there was a new film project developed and distributed outside the major channels which was a complete return to form for Seagal.

Apologies if this is off course as this is more personal opinion rather than relating to the film, but as the topic of distribution by Lionsgate was raised, I just wanted to see how others felt.

But keep remembering people, Seagal won't have that much of screentime (as he mentioned in the interviews he did for 365 flix). It's also about the team so the teammembers will also get their moment to shine. But I am alright with that.

I'm ok with this too because I know this was originally supposed to be a pilot to a tv show. If Seagal only has two fights I'm ok with that as long as they are good fights and based on the trailers I've seen it looks like the fights will be good.
