From the land of "honest, I am not making this stuff up" comes news of a Burger King movie. Yes, the oddly creepy, mostly mute Burger King has inked himself a studio and distribution deal. In fact Burger King: When Snacks Attack (I made that title up, the actual title hasn't been finalized yet) has a tentative release of late this year. I guess this is no weirder than the Geico caveman getting his own TV show, but still do we need a movie about a fast food mascot?
I know that there have been other blatant marketing attempts posed as movies (Wizard with Fred Savage, anyone?), but those always still felt like movies. Movies backed by one corporation, but movies nonetheless. This, on the other hand, is a commercial pretending to be a movie; you walk into the movie already knowing that it's a commercial.
But hey, the world needs to know where the Burger King came from right? I mean I know that I'm dying to find out what his deal is...
