    I have not been so constantly let down by a movie in my life!!! I seen it was coming out Feb 6th finally!!!! So I checked to see if it was going to come out in my city.......nope...I expected this though..... so I checked the next biggest city about 30miles away.....Nada!!!! So it looked like I was going to go to our state capital city, Indianapolis... guess what??? its not showing in my state at all!!!! 41 cities ....thats it!!!!

    *Austin, TX (1 screen)
    *Chicago, IL (3 screens)
    *Houston, TX (3 screens)
    *Los Angeles, CA (10 screens)
    *New York, NY (10 screens)
    *Philadelphia, PA (5 screens)

    To me, this looks like payback, to all the Star Wars fans that gathered in protest to get the original movie with the cancer plot, that we all had a glimpse of at CIV (for those that went) or seen or read about on the web.
    It's like "Ok, here's the movie that you all wined about but if you wana see it, then you see it on our terms!"
    I know that seeing as I live in a remote town in northern Australia, I have Buckley's chance of seeing this on the big screen.
    And I'm not sure I want to give Harvey Weinstein my money if I only get to see it on DVD.

    it's not payback towards us, they just doomed their own movie to DVD hell. they must hate themselves. I was wanting to troop this, but eh always next time.

    Hey guys, film distribution is complicated. The film companies do not own the theaters. They have to sell the film to the exhibition companies... if the exhibitors don't want to rent the prints for whatever reason, then little can be done. Also, prints are freaking expensive. Not every film can have 2000 prints at the ready on opening day. For a film of this size and nature, this is a very typical distribution scheme. They are very lucky to have it this good, actually. Normally they will open small in some select markets and if it catches on in those markets, they can open in smaller markets. But it is extremely rare that this ever happens, of course. Especially for February releases. It is no secret in the film industry that what the studios perceive as their duds are released in February to get them off the slate.

    Yep, even Star Wars only opened in 43 theaters and they had to bribe the theater owners to even get that.

    Exactly! Excellent point. And as chronicled in The Making of Star Wars book, the only reason Star Wars was booked at the Grauman's Chinese theater in Hollywood opening weekend is because the movie they had previously booked had its release date pushed back a few weeks. They originally didn't want it!!

    I so don't care about this film anymore. They've put it off and put it off for so long... you know it's going to be complete junk.

    The movie is getting a limited release on Feb 6th. If it does well in those cities, it will go into wider release. So if you live in one of those cities, please go check it out.

    Well i guess LA it is for me then. Yes its been forever, though for me itll prob be my last time suiting up as jango. And its a good reason to suit up again seeing how im not 501st yet and rarely wear it. So if anyone wants to meet up in LA let me know!

    I'm sure Demonoid will have it pretty quick. Kind of sucks that very few theaters will have it around the nation.

    It's probably just a limited release, and will go everywhere later, or if it does really well or something. Those of us who are in those cities that are showing it, we've gotta support it so everyone else will get the chance.
