Considering how close they come with their ripped-off plots and movie titles (Transmorphers), I'm surprised they haven't been sued by one of the major studios.

Universal sued them for American Battleship causing them to rename it to American Warships.

As much as I despised the Universal release, I'm glad they sued.
It is BS trying to make a $$$ off of someone else's idea IMO.

A.P.S. deserve our protection....join the cause today!

Entertainment Weekly had a pretty good article about this a few months ago.

From the last paragraph:
Quote:
The irony is, the more successful the Asylum has become — and the free publicity it's received from this recent spate of lawsuits hasn't hurt — the more it has opened itself up to be imitated. ''We're seeing competition with these outrageous movies like Sharktopus and Robo Croc,'' says Bales. ''Those are Asylum-type movies, but we didn't make them.'' Not that the company's complaining. ''It's an honor,'' Rimawi says, ''to be mockbusted.''
