Lawd Jesus why...why, Lawd, why...why you do me like this?
Drama drama, movie “From The Rough” starring LeToya Luckett, Taraji P Henson and Tom Felton, was originally slated for a Fall 2011 release. It was then pushed back to February 3rd of this year but as the date came closer and closer and that no promotion was to be seen whatsoever, it was obvious that the movie wasn’t going to be released as planned.

After leaving fans in the dark, Director Pierre Bagley is now speaking out. He reveals that his business partner and investor of $6.5 Million Michael Jake Cortelli is refusing to release the movie until they can agree on a [promotional & marketing] strategy. Let’s see how this turns out

  2. That's messed up. I was looking forward to this film. But I am not surprised given that it is an independant film and they need all of the help they can get when it comes to promoting small films.

      Meanwhile, The Hollywood Machine can churn out excrement after steaming pile of excrement without hitting so much as a speed bump.

  3. Given with what went down with GI Joe, crap like this doesn't surprise me.

    Damn.

      They pushed it back a year (or two?) to make it 3-D, so I've read from one source. All I know is 3D = "you're not getting my money, f*ck you!".

    3. GI Joe 2 was supposed to come out this year, but they changed it to next year because they wanted to make it 3D.

    4. That was the cover story. Apparently GI Joe 2 started getting some negative reviews after audiences learned the fate of one of the characters.

  4. Why is there a "marketing" issue? It has Tom Felton. WTF??? How hard is it to market a film with Tom Felton?

    As long as you leave him British, the viewers will come.

      IKR?! Tom Felton? Harry Potter on his resume, and you can't slingshot off of that?

    2. Well, here is the thing. America is very fickle. We have a "Here today, gone today" mentality now. If Harry Potter was still running strong in the theaters, they would have no problem promoting this. But since the franchise is now officially over, people have an "out of sight, out of mind" mentality.

    3. But Tom Felton has a following regardless. It's Tom Felton. If you have Tom Felton in your movie, marketing gets 10x easier, not harder!
