Quote:THE Game of Thrones prequel starring Naomi Watts was axed after HBO decided the £30million pilot was “too woke”.

It was to feature the first White Walker as black, put lesbian characters at the heart of the plot and make one of Ned Stark’s ancestors mixed race.

The series, in which the main theme was to be colonialism, was being run by writer and producer Jane Goldman.

Quote:The prequel was very woke and subversive. But they’ve decided to go for a script by a bloke and full of dragons.

“They’ve missed an open goal to do something different. Spending more than £30million and three years has been a monumental waste of time and money. There’s a lot of angry people.

This hideous fat fuck with pink hair is the reason why HBO flushed 30 mil down the toilet.

Colonialism in prehistoric Game of Thrones universe - who could have resisted.

Those fuckers deserve every 40 mio. $ loss they can get and I hope that the other show tanks as well as the retards likely won't resist and put lots of feminism and wokeness in it as well.

The Chinese don't look too kindly at ugly lanky women as the real hero - neither as 5 ft tall hobbit-women who are sold as superheroines who will come out on top in the post-apocalyptic future.

I can tell you that in asia that the trailers were a huge flop. Old lady (Sarah O'Conner) and old man (Arnold) was in it. Weird shrimpy taco bell terminator and the little latinx girl didn't even factor into it.

Most of the trailer is highlighting the geriatric actors.

This is why the movie flopped in asia noone wants to see old people first of all unless it is a tear jerker local drama with native actors. Also noone gives two shits about Latinx people in asia.

Another example of a popular product going woke. I was never a fan of comic books (maybe except Disney stuff in early childhood) - for me it's an example of simplification and bastardization of written media into a pulp intended for mass consumption, with pictures and short, easily digestible dialogues to eliminate any incentive for imagination. Yet, I know very well how it is to see something you like ruined, so I can sympathize. Here, this "wokeness" takes an almost comical shape.

It’s not a good weekend for franchises, specifically old dusty ones as the sixth Terminator movie, Terminator: Dark Fate is seeing an awful future at the weekend domestic box office with $27.1M, a terrible result for a planned Paramount/Skydance Media/Fox tentpole that reportedly cost $185M (some even say it was $196M). And I hear worldwide, global audiences are turning their noses ups: China’s box office, now at an estimated $19.4M is also underwhelming, expected to come in at $30M, well below the $40M-$50M many were expecting, with Disney/Fox hoping that they hit $40M from 36 territories. Japan is the only market left (Terminator: Genisys made $22M). Breakeven for Dark Fate lies around $470M+ according to finance sources...

This turkey may have given us one of the best "get woke, go broke" meme images in a long, long time:

I'm surprised she did something so SJW,,,the prior stuff she co-wrote was pretty good and wasn't SJW - Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

I wonder if someone at HBO insisted on SJW content and made her take the blame...?

Fuck that - you have to take a good luck with the Hollywood hires who is actually doing the work and on what.

Dumb and Dumber DB Weiss is a failed novelist who could only do anecdotes well and he wrote only one movie that was over the span of an anecdote - one day. And he got that gig because of being the son of a Goldmach Sachs CEO.

Jane Goldman on her own did nothing - she was the co-writer with Matthew Vaughn and others (almost nothing since her solo projects bombed) .

But it's interesting that whenever she did something on her own it was about the woke James Bond blabbering on about feminism:





She is likely an uber-woke woman promoted due to being part of the tribe and being a woman. When she could write and direct the show on her own, that is where it all crumbled. HBO is certainly getting woker, but they did not seem to force Dumb and Dumber's hands. GOT was just becoming stupid in the latter seasons and badly done as they were without assistance of Martin.

The cancelled sequel was utterly without assistance and likely Goldman sold them on the woke crap.

And no - she is unlikely to have written anything decent without help. She seems to have written Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and some horror movie - Woman in Black. Those flicks while not horrible were lackluster and cleraly female-centric. A few years ago those woke writers had to restrain their full inner woketard for sure.....
