Blockbuster director Zack Snyder has an idea for Hollywood to avoid another film getting hacked — like the new 'Pirates of the Caribbean' flick — but it's gonna require embracing LOW tech.

    • clue104 I think he has a lot to pray about right now that’s far more important.

    • Gent M I just found out. Prayers go out to Snyder, the family and the people of Manchester

    • Dexter White
      what is wrong with Snyder movies anyway, it was wb which compelled him to rush things and also he created a whole new Universe with special emphasis on emotions. only problem that critics find with him was that he did not copy mcu in any way

  1. I must have missed the back story cause I have no idea what the hell hes talking about

  2. zack seems like a really good dude. Although I’m not a fan of BVS i wish him the best for justice league.

  3. I don’t know why Channel Awesome has to make front of Zack and Bay. They seem pretty nice, I know you hate the direction they’re doing, but they need better writers with a fresh mind. Mostly the writers writes the plot, script and jokes. Gotta blame the writers, not the directors.

    • Lindsay of Channel Awesome was making fun of Zack’s dead mom so thesr are the type of people they are. They compare Bay to Zack to insult Zack and his fans, It still doesn’t change the fact that MAN OF STEEL is one of the best superhero films of all time.

      There’s a difference between calling out a director for his body of work, and calling out a director for his personal issues. The latter is completely unacceptable, and makes you look like a total asshat. The former is fair game, as long as you can back up your opinions and be able to explain them.

      In short, the critics have the right to tear him a new one, but as soon as it gets personal, their integrity goes flying out the window…

  4. I wish Zack the best and pray he learns to cope with the great loss he has experienced in the death of his daughter.

  5. I feel so bad for him for his tragic news you can see the sadness in his eyes

  6. this guy is the one who brought us the best superman movie,best batman aswell and best alfred

  7. Pirates will still make mega bucks. these hacks won’t affect blockbusters

  8. the sad thing is if justice league is good people are just gonna say it was Joss Whedon

  9. Zack Snyder seems to have lost a lot of weight recently. I can’t say I enjoyed some of his approaches, but I really enjoyed 300 and Wonder Woman. I hope him and his family are doing well.

  10. Seems like the nicest dude. I don’t understand all the hate. P w s Anderson and Michael bay on the other hand deserve every criticism they get

  11. Shooting on celluloid hasn’t prevented piracy at all. Especially with webcams, which have increased in quality over the years. And distributing entirely on film would cost more monetarily than they’re losing on piracy. Look to X-Men Origins, which got leaked and still made money despite critical reception.

    • Did you listen to what he said, or even read the title that references his point?
      He wasn’t speaking about preventing/eliminating piracy; he was saying that shooting and finishing on film isn’t hackable… “it’s analogue so you can’t hack it”
