Warner Bros. Discovery is struggling to save face after disgruntled crew release clips from the finished Coyote Vs Acme film scrapped for tax purposes.
In case you missed it, Warner Bros. Discovery has made everyone very angry by deleting another finished film to claim back $30m in tax.
The refund essentially depends on the company going to whatever means possible to ensure the film never sees the light of day – which is why it’s been quickly filing copyright claims on the content disgruntled crew members are putting out in a protest against the decision.
Not everything seems to have been taken down yet, though – Steven Price, who created the music for the film, has released a behind-the-scenes clip of a choir re-interpreting Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. This is a Looney Tunes film after all, though, so they’re doing it with ‘meeps’. It’s absolutely delightful, and you should watch it before it gets taken down.
Meanwhile, Twitter/X account Lost Media Busters have released what looks like some early test stills from the film, used to illustrate the interaction between live-action footage and animation. Or maybe they’re from the finished film – sadly, because (and we can’t stress this enough) they’ve canned it, we’ll probably never know!
We’ll update this page with any more clips, footage and behind-the-scenes info if it emerges. For now, though, we’re trying to figure out the American Media Conglomerate equivalent of writing to your MP – if we find a suitable alternative, we’ll also put it here.
