Malco Projectionist In Trouble for Online Review 

According to Reuters, a projectionist for Malco was suspended after he posted a pre-opening, negative review of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer on the web site, aintitcool.com.

From the story: "Jesse Morrison, the projectionist, claims that the film's distributor, 20th Century Fox, was behind the decision by Malco Theatres Inc. to suspend him for an undetermined period. The studio denied the charge.

"While studios and filmmakers have endured early reviews of their movies, both negative and positive, on Web sites since the early days of the Internet, the incident might mark the first time someone working in the entertainment industry has lost a job for voicing an early opinion online."

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer opens tomorrow.
