To be honest I watch so little conventional TV I can't comment with any great authority.

Mortal Engines was massively promoted, though I wonder if they're becoming quite targeted about advertising. I probably have a YouTube and general Google history that tells them clearly that I'm into science fiction movies with upscale production design. I saw a lot of this as YouTube advertising. To Greg's point, though, I saw very little of it anywhere else.

It is unfortunate.

 

At the end of the day it's not really his fault, though. I assume he'd have had almost no real authority as an (almost) first-timer on a film of this scale. He would have known what the situation was going into it; if the film is a hit, he has a career, and if it isn't he may still be able to eke something out of it. His ability to influence that success or failure was probably tiny and doing it is better than not doing it in either case.

 

And he'll have been paid a small fortune to stand by the camera and tell the actors what to do.

I think the problems were obvious from the trailer. I'm a big fan of that sort of speculative fiction but they managed to turn me off fairly quickly. It was fairly clear what it would be.
