Fox Walden gets more bad press.

First there was all that confusion over the title of The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising. Now Fox Walden is getting even more bad buzz thanks to Big Fox‘s treatment of a critic at a Denver Film Festival screening of Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium. According to Jeffrey Wells at Hollywood Elsewhere, this critic was told he would be “physically blocked” from going into the theatre even if he had bought a ticket to see it like all the other festivalgoers. Oy vey.

NOV 12 UPDATE: Jeffrey Wells issues a clarification. Seems it was an “overzealous” festival rep, and not a Fox rep, that threatened to block the critic. But Variety magazine has now run a review of the film that could perhaps be best described as tepid — and so the buzz on this film isn’t exactly getting all that much better.
