She added the row between Odeon and Sony Pictures Releasing could have halved its takings.
So observe some things here, two monopolies are having a go at each other. A rubbish film was spared a wider airing in england, and nobody there knew about it until now, or the lack of choice.
OK American cinema rules but should it be seen just because it is number one in cash takings? What of those films that never get seen ? Remember the times when the multiplex did not mean spiderman 3 in all screens except at tuesday at 19:10 for the art film in the smallest screen?
Nor am i saying that spiderman 2 was bad, but should it be the only film seen in that time slot for that week? Thats the trouble with monopolies either making things, or distributing them.
OK so not all films have merit, but when all film releases get a sameish ‘comics like’ theme xmen, you complete the list here then where is the diversity that cinema promises ?
I dont see it. do you ? If ‘our’* appetite for the block buster was curbed by the the distributor then perhaps we can all curb ‘our’* blockbuster addiction after this and teach the film choosers a lesson.
What is most gauling is that the film in question is perceived to be a ‘sure fire hit’ regardless of anything else, that must be wrong mustnt it.
* not you, but the distributors choice
