In the comments to my last post, several of my readers suggested that we follow the lead of the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin and show TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE at the Cocteau, since Sony has wimped out and pulled THE INTERVIEW.
It sounded like a great idea, so we took immediate steps to do so.
Only to learn that Paramount has now decided to withdraw TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE from exhibition. We won't be allowed to show the film, and neither will Alamo, nor any of the other independent venues that wanted to use TA:WP to replace THE INTERVIEW.
Regal. AMC. Cinemark. Sony. And now Paramount. Where does it end?
I guess I should contact our new North Korean masters to ask them what movies we will be allowed to show at the Cocteau.
