It seems that Sir Scott might receive another blow this, as Sony removed the movie from AFI Fest. Will the public boycott it in the light of the general harassment crazy?

Interesting point. Seems Netflix is in a similar bind in some ways too. I have no idea how it will shake out. I am thinking everyone has been paid for their work so it is on the studio to recoup any losses perhaps? If this crashes, I would not put the blame on RS though. 

Honestly, I never even heard of this movie or watched House of Cards, so I don't have a horse in this race since I had no intention of watching either show or film.

Yes. Poor Ridley. If the movie is really good I hope the scandal does not ruin its chances at the Oscars: it would be unfair. The movie has been pulled from a movie festival nevertheless. At least "Murder in The Orient Express" beat Thor in its second week in the UK. I don't think it is going to be that successful in the US though. Anyway this has been an unlucky year for Ridley Scott.

There may still be interest, or even more interest, due to the controversy, so I think it will at least break even at the box-office.

Critically? I don't know. I imagine that critics who see it will review it without Spacey's actions in mind. There will probably just be no awards. I guess the studio has decided against any kind of oscar campaign for it. They were going to try and get one for Spacey's performance/physical transformation, but now... Not so much.

Hopefully, it flops, and Scott will realize he needs to kick ass on the Covenant follow up. Scott made it clear he feels that the Xeno is obsolete, and Covenant was a business move rather than a passion project. 

I can't support Scott too much anymore, and his disjointed storytelling methods in the Alien universe make me frustrated.

Bright as ever, the latest news says Sir Ridley will do his best and replace Spacey just a month or so before the release, for he's considering all the other professionals who worked on his latest project.

That's a guy who knows what he's doing, and that's why I'm a Sir Ridley person.
