We just spotted this at the website of the National Center for Science Education (NCSE): Expelled on the block? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed — the 2008 creationist propaganda movie fronted by Ben Stein — is scheduled to be auctioned, lock, stock, and barrel, pursuant to the bankruptcy proceeding of Premise Media Holdings LP.
That company may not be the actual producer of Expelled! We thought the producer was something called Premise Media Corporation, and that may still be solvent; we don’t know. From the similarity of names, the entity in bankruptcy proceedings appears to be part of the same operation. It owns the film and the court is selling it free and clear of all debts and liens.
We’ll give you one more excerpt, then we know you’re going to click over to NCSE to read their entire article:
[T]he trustee of the bankruptcy estate is seeking to auction “[t]hat certain feature-length motion picture (‘Picture’) ‘Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed’ and all collateral, allied, ancillary, subsidiary and merchandising rights therein and thereto, and all properties and things of value pertaining thereto.” The auction is scheduled to take place on-line from June 23 to June 28, 2011.
For the briefest of moments we imagined bidding on the film, but we swiftly came to our senses. Even if our bid of $1 (we certainly wouldn’t pay more) were successful, then what? We don’t want anything to do with that sleaze.
