Joss Whedon is the director behind "The Avengers," which hit theaters back in May in over 4,000 theaters. The film has since become the third highest-grossing of all time, but is now being shown on less than 500 theaters.
The problem... small independent films like "Sleepwalk With Me," which is set to be released on close to 80 screens across the nation, clearly taking away screens from "The Avengers," ruining its chances of being the second highest-grossing movie.
Whedon is pissed off by this and has put together a video to get his fans to boycott "Sleepwalk With Me" and other independent films. The goal, with time, is to eliminate all independent movies, to make room for big blockbusters.
Check out Whedon's video below, in addition to the trailer for "Sleepwalk With Me," which will get a limited release on August 24th.

You greedy sc*mbag. So 1.5 billion is not enough for the second coming of avatar. You would deny new directors their chance at success. What you think you are the new james cameron. You have one successful film and your head explodes. That just sucks. Btw serenity blew!
He's joking. He did this video to promote his friend's independent movie.

Screw independent directors! They're so annoying wanting people to see their movies and all! I get so pissed when directors have to settle for third highest grossing film of all time instead of second. These independent films and their wanting to be viewed mentality are a disgrace to the film industry.
