Why can't Hollywood fcuking spell?
Time to report on a movie trend that's more terrifying than any unnecessary helicopter or diagonal title treatment: the fact that spelling standards are seemingly slipping throughout the film industry – from props and in-film graphics to promotional materials, posters and beyond. This inability to use proper spelling and grammar is more damning to Hollywood than any film directed by Peter Berg ever could be.
