Universal Studios is On Fire – “Literally” June 2, 2008

Universal Studios - On Fire

Universal Studios is on Fire, but this time it meant that literally the studio was on fire.

This photo is not taking from an action alien-attack movie, and it’s not from any kind of movie at all, cause this ones for real. The smoke you see is actually from the fire that broke down a lot of the memorable things in Universal Studios, (the place where movies can be experienced once again). Among those which were burned are the King Kong ride , the New York Street, Courthouse Square and Hill Valley. And even the video vault is on fire.

The news says the fire started sometime between 4:30-4:45 this morning, where an MTV Movie Awards is scheduled to take place later, but no worries guys, cause the fire can’t stop the heat of the show and it  will go on as planned.

A lot of damages actually, but just like in every movie, the show must go on. Besides, the news says only two exterior sets were damaged (causing tens of millions of dollars actually).  Not that bad actually, but for some TV Series like Jennifer Love Hewit’s Ghost Whisperer, probable delays on production would occur.

3 Critical:

  1. Not A Joke? – I bet a lot of people who saw the smoke thought it was part of their show, and never thought the Studio would be on fire. Crazy right?
  2. Fire In The Studio – Aren’t they prepared for these kinds of things? It just made me wonder.
  3. Who Started It – which hero (or villain) do you think started it? Accident, accident, accident.

I was particularly worried about that film vault being destroyed, given how many important and excellent works we’ve already lost through negligence, accident and just plain dumb luck, but it seems that they were mostly video copies and backups exist at other locations anyhow.

Still, an expensive sort of disaster. It’s good no one was hurt.

I was also a bit worried about the vault. A lot of good movies were made because of those movies in the vault. Truly irreplaceable.
