Some see this done out of respect. I see it done because of greed and money. The release would be overshadowed by news coverage of the unfortunate event in Boston and mean less attention and revenue generated for them.


Since you don't know why they did it, I think you should keep you own thoughts to yourself. If they hadn't postponed they would have been criticised too. Let's just assume they acted for the right reasons.

Notice I didn't try to get inside your head and announce to the world your true reasons for you posting as you did.

it's such a fu--ed up thing that someone would try and hurt people intentionally. Funny or die is doing the right thing

Pretty sure the Boston Bombing will still be in the headlines in two days. :rolleyes:

I agree. Although I wouldn't say they're greedy; most, if not all, of their content is free. I do agree that they pulled it so that the news wouldn't overshadow the release of their movie.


A bit too cynical a view for me. I choose to believe that they have a shred of decency in them not to offend people's sensibilities, and to realize that this premiere could wait a few days.

Your last line makes no sense? I stated that it was my own opinion. I didn't force it upon anyone or try to pass it off as fact.

You can read gatearrays post for my reply to your 'statement.'

Either way my heart goes out to everyone who was in Boston. I completed my first marathon two years ago and can't imagine such a thing happening at the end. I was dead tired.
