Studios Compete for Most Idiotic Title
From iwatchstuff, Though not formally announced as a competition, Dark Horse Indie will soon be competing head-to-head against the Icelandic Film Center for the most literal idiotic movie title. From Dark Horse comes War Monkeys, which is not meant as a political commentary about government and military "monkeys" mucking up the war, but is about actual military-trained monkeys attacking a janitor who is accidentally locked in with them.
Meanwhile, from the depths of Iceland comes The Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre, which is described as being something like Texas Chainsaw Massacre (even starring Leatherface) except for the parts about Texas and chainsaws being replaced with Reykajvik and whale watching, which implies to me that whale watching is somehow the primary massacre weapon.
It certainly sounds like no matter who wins this battle, the overall winner will be the human race.
