EXCLUSIVE: We’ve all heard concerning the occasional bicycle thief on the Venice Film Festival. Less so poster thieves.
That’s what Netflix has seemingly encountered after a handful of its kickstand posters went lacking outdoors the five-star Excelsior Hotel.
Six posters for motion pictures Maestro and The Killer went lacking Monday evening leaving some studio employees questioning whether or not the disappearances are a results of theft by overzealous followers or one thing extra co-ordinated.
As far as we all know, Netflix was the one studio to have its posters taken down. The streamer re-added new posters Tuesday.
We’ve requested the competition whether or not they’re conscious of something related happening this 12 months or in earlier editions. Nothing again to this point.
There was a time a decade in the past when Netflix motion pictures had been greeted with ripples of boos at main festivals because of the thorny windowing debate. But these days are within the rearview mirror and the streamer is a daily and valued studio associate at Venice and different festivals. With that in thoughts, it appears extra seemingly that the disappearances are a results of overzealous followers. They are good posters, in any case.
A few commerce journalists on the competition had their bikes stolen on the Lido this 12 months. That was nearly definitely native thieves fairly than sabotage from different trades. We hope.
