Cinema Quiz:5 Why? Why? Why?

October 13, 2009


The person on the left had a nightmare at the box office. A film which he had directed was a complete washout, it couldn’t even recover 2% of the total production cost. However, things seem a little different now! Identify these two…and how are they connected?

Ans: The guy on the left is Jason F.Maurer, he had co-directed an animated film called “Delgo” in 2008. Made with a budget of $40 million dollars, it grossed just under $700,000 when it released thereby making it the worst grossing for an animated film.

The other one is, James Cameroon (of course!). His latest visual extravaganza is “Avatar“.

Connection between them is “Avatar“. When the initial promos and designs of Avatar were released, Fathom Studios which had produced “Delgo” realised that there were striking similarities between the two. Now, they are planning to file a case against James Cameroon for Plagiarism!

    The guy on the left side is Jason Maurer. He was the co-director of the 2008 super flop “Delgo”. The guy on the right is James Cameron (DUH!) the director of Yet to be released Avatar.

    The production house of Delgo “Fathom studios” is considering a Law Suit against Avatar for resemblance of characters.

    OK. Where’s my prize..?
