What’s up crazy crew! I never understood people like Tyler Perry or M. Night Shyamalan putting their darn name in front of every movie they direct. Do people really care that they directed the film? Does it get more butts in the theaters or is it just plain egotistical?

Thanks again and I hope you have a merry merry day!

P.S. I’d love to eat donuts with Sinead all day!

Hello collider crew.

Product placement, it’s in a lot of movies/shows and is generally disliked. I wanna know, excluding Reese’s Pieces, has product placement ever worked on you? For me, every time I watch Ironman, I want Burger King when Tony ask for an ‘american cheeseburger’ after getting back to the States.
