In my 30-year practice as a securities/entertainment attorney, working with independent film producers seeking to obtain film finance from private investors, some of these producers have from time to time raised the question (or possibility) of financing some or all of the production costs of their film through foreign pre-sales.

There’s a lot of hate being lashed out at writer/director M. Night Shyamalan’s truncated, and unexpected end of a trilogy, Glass.

PAUL: DC Comics and Warner Brothers have the holiday season all to themselves. No Marvel or Star Wars getting in the way. The entire pop culture-driven movie landscape is theirs. So, the question is, “how will they screw it up?”

It’s getting to be the holidays, which means it’s time for splashy Hollywood blockbusters that conjure up familiar names like JK Rowling and DC Comics.
