https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/may/15/film-based-on-christchurch-mosque-shooting-hello-brother According to Variety the film’s title will be Hello, Brother, the words spoken by 71-year-old victim Hati Mohammed Daoud Nabi, who opened the door to the gunman of Al Noor mosque, where 42 people died. The central characters are “a family facing death and destruction in Afghanistan who escape with their lives”.
Though the intentions of the filmmaker seem pure, I really don't like it when films are made about tragedies so soon afterwards. The article doesn't state whether the profits from the film are going to charity, so I assume they are not. I'd just rather people waited before trying to capitalise on awful events.
"I've got a cheap fucking idea that'l coast some contentious cash into our pockets"
There's a profit to be made
Yeah I'm sure glorifying these shootings even more will help matters.
Because money. Period
directed by /b/
The shooter is getting everything he wanted, goddamit hollywood
Reminds me of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33eLaNNTUKY
The actual factual definition of "too soon"
Let the dead rest in peace, you goddamn vultures.
Nothing more than a "look at me we care too!" money grab. Genuinely fuck off.
2 months after the murders. classy ...
I can already imagine the trailer. Eerie music. Shots of innocent people getting shot. Images of the aftermath. The screen goes black. An omnious voice whispers: "Subscribe to Pewdiepie" as Remove Kebab starts playing.
I'm sure edgelords won't laugh at the film and that it wont influence any copycats, nosir
Ah shit, please don't let this movie release. It's only make terrible outcome
Christ, why stop there, make a tie-in game while you at it?
Think of the opportunities merchandising! How about a pile of bodies that make moaning-sounds when your little shooter action-figure fires a little spring-gun at it? Or a muslim shooting-victim ketchup dispenser.
That would be a MW2 rip off though
tbh I liked the 9/11 movie with Nick Cage in it.
I think it's great to make films dealing with controversial issues and events, provided you do it tastefully and aim to make some sort of statement. Pretty sure they already fail at doing it tastefully by not waiting atleast a few years, and that doesn't bode well for how the film will end up portraying the event.
