In terms of things to file under “you’ve gotta be #*&$^%* kidding me, you insensitive jerk…”
An Indian director is already pitching a film idea revolving around MH370 at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, entitled “The Vanishing Act.” Here’s the trailer:
Not only does it show the wrong aircraft, but it doesn’t even consistently show one aircraft. Oy.
Variety has more about the movie:
On Saturday afternoon, Paul presented his film idea to financiers with a 90-second teaser trailer, which features a cast of terrified passengers aboard a turbulent jetliner. He also had a poster with the tag line, “The untold story of the vanished Malaysian flight.”
He also said he doesn’t think the families of the missing plane would find his film insensitive. “I will make sure no passengers will be hurt because of this,” Paul said.
“Untold story,” really?! And you really don’t think the families will find this insensitive? Well of course no passengers will be hurt by this, but I can’t imagine the same is true for their families.
