    Odeon refuse to show alice in wonderland movie

    The new version starring johnny depp will not be shown in any odeon cinema and looks like other chains will follow suit.

    This is over a dispute with disney who want to release all their future movies on dvd just 12 weeks after cinema release-cinemas believe this will affect their profits.

    Ironically the odeon leicester square is the venue for the premiere on thursday night.

    You think 12 weeks is too short a gap?are the cinemas right?

    12 Weeks is borderline, an example being avatar. Most people may reconsider going to the cinema to see it as it would be on dvd soon, obviouslly not a disney film, but none the less, it would be too soon. disney films are hardly films that lose effect at home either

    does it really matter? many people will download it before its even been released at the cinema never mind 12 weeks later!!! lol...

    lol-agree in most cases but disney dont release r5s do they?

    Cinema's do right, if more and more films start doing this then people will wait twelve weeks and buy it from the community killing superstores *cough* Tesco *cough* . I'd be all for a six months minimum.

    No it means dvd rips/copys would be available sooner than the release date for the dvd product

    12 weeks is way too soon, suprising disney want to do that

    Could kill off small independent cinemas, sometimes they can wait weeks for prints.

    You could download a 1080p rip of Up before it was even out at the cinema here!!

    So someone told me........ :thumbsup:

    I'm not too fussed, nowadays i don't go to the cinema to see a film because you can't get it on DVD/Elsewhere, i go because i like the experience of the big screen etc.

    There's a cinema local to me which shows films reeeaaallly late, prety much when they're coming out on DVD, i wish they would show old clasics, would love to see Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction etc. on te big screen again

    Although having a 7 month old has meant i haven't been to the cinema for roughly 7 and a half months.

    I read somewhere that the cinemas are also unhappy because they have bought the new 3d tecnnology and now firms like Disney are trying to bring this in after they have paid for upgrades.......

    BUT wait? is that not the reason we pay more to watch 3D films??? to pay for the equipment that they bought? even if you have the unlimited pass you have to pay extra for the 3d films. They'll get there money back and much more from their surcharge on 3d films.

    Bloody popcorn makes them more money than 4D technology would!!

    since when are films in the cinema for 3 months?
    i will always rather see a film at the cinema!
