Wow here you're asking me that and and I tracked the box office which is sort of the other end of that creative process not at the -- -- where they make.
Those decisions to make those kind of movies and being very diplomatic here.
We might see a movie like that you know what you can produce and make -- -- then it'll get done it would make money might anywhere they got a little -- just that I I just got a feeling that Hollywood wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.
