A spokesman for Johansson tells PAGE SIX’s Tom Sykes [Page Six c'est la page des ragots dans le NY Post, un torchon de Murdoch], “We find it incredible that the producers of ‘The Island’ have blamed the low box-office results on the film’s two lead actors. This is a clear-cut example of the producers’ passing the buck and not taking responsibility for their part in making calculated mistakes throughout the film’s marketing.”
The rep continues: “Ms. Johansson is proud of her performance and the film … The film and the actors’ performances were overall well received by the critics. We put our trust in the professionals who sold and promoted this film. It is unforgivable that the producers continue to blame everyone but themselves.” [...]
Parkes and MacDonald ate their words as PAGE SIX went to press, praising “Scarlett Johansson and Ewan McGregor’s extraordinary work” and alleging that their “comments were taken completely out of context.” DreamWorks had no comment.
"J'espère que les spectateurs auront autant de paisir à voir le film que nous en avons eu à le faire et à nous taper sur la gueule après."
