'because it didn't look like the finished thing to us'

more likely you didn't want to piss off the film studio thus denying you future film access to actors, on set interviews etc. *tut tut*

Oh well, fair play to Empire for not posting the clip.

It was a delightful clip, but it was definitely not from the finished film, and Empire MIGHT have got in trouble posting it - not just because a studio would have been pissed, but who knows where it came from, could have been an illegal bootleg, etc... I never expected them to post it any more than I expect them to post dodgy camcorder-footage of trailers or something.

Wow, Spyro, snippy much? (I feel it's time Buffy-isms were resurrected)

Of course we wouldn't needlessly annoy a film studio, because we're not idiots. But this was clearly not finished footage and we're not in the business of running dodgy, potentially illegal, unfinished footage particularly on films so highly anticipated by our readers. This is mainly because I don't see what service it does to film lovers who want to see movies looking as good as they can. We didn't run the pirated version of the Indy IV trailer for the same reasons.

Before Jonze's explanation, the clip was potentially fake or, at best, an early test (turns out this is what it was), so what's the value for anyone in running it?

There's an outstanding article on now that states that Warner and Legendary are considering massive, massive reshoots, possibly with an entirely new script. It seems the test screenings they've had were disastrous--with kids crying even, and that Jonze's vision was too "subversive."
