Ok, I'm assuming by the amount of comments in the article, that all of you guys have seen the new trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution. And I'm also sure that you recognized the music in the video as well, as it belongs to the film Tron:Legacy. How exactly is this possible? I have been searching for connections between the entities involved, but I can't come up with any good reasons for the usage of the music.
From Wikipedia, "In Russia, Mexico, Brazil, Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines, Walt Disney Pictures films had been distributed in a joint venture with Sony Pictures Entertainment." I don't think is a very good connection between the companies although I suppose it establishes some sort of relationship.
Again from Wikipedia, "[Daft Punk] later appeared in a television advertisement wearing their Discovery-era headgear to promote Sony Ericsson's Premini mobile phone." I don't believe that this represents any kind of meaningful connection between the duo and the company.
So how is Sony doing this? Is this legal? Or am I just an idiot, and put way too much thought and time into this post?
Probably the second one.
