It could still make big money just not initially though
that would not be good in crowded summer movie season...The Great Gatsby on the 10th and Star Trek Into Darkness on the 15th...It would have a week at best to make up for not being in the 3 main theaters.
yes it will make its money...but not like it would if it was in the big chains
Yea if they don't work this out, Iron Man 3 box office sales will take a major hit. Like someone else said this summer (well May in particular) is extremely crowded with movies. We have this, Gatsby (though I am not interested in seeing it) Star Trek, Fast 6, Hangover Part 3 all within weeks of each other.
They really haven't worked this out yet? Wow.
I hope the theaters stand their ground and don't give into to Disney, like how DirecTV gave into Viacom.
I get your point but I don't want that to happen! All the movie theaters near me are either Cinemark, Regal, or AMC so I would not be able to see the movie if this happened.....
Hope they get this worked out and soon, I was planning on seeing this opening nice at AMC, where I see all the movies I attend.
I thought it was the Monster's prequel this summer?
They're both opening in the summer (Monsters University in June and Planes in August.)
AMC and Disney reach an agreement | Wall Street Journal
Very good. Hopefully the others follow suit!
I can't read it, but good. That means my theater is good. I just hope there isn't a ticket price hike.
I'd like to see who won in the agreement
yup i forgot about this one
Don't get too happy...if Disney won we could be seeing a ticket hike
Now I just need Cinemark or Regal to end their disputes since the AMC deal doesn't help for my location. Regal is the closest one for where I am and the nearest Cinemark is located across town and not as nice.
Edit: An article not behind a paywall
From the writer of that Wall Street Journal article:
God I hope that's true. This is really starting to scare me with the premiere date being so close.
EDIT: Just saw that Disney and AMC reached an agreement. That solves my problem!
These theater chains stand to lose tens of millions of dollars.
Disney has deeper pockets and can take the hit.
The theaters will fold.
I see a deal was reached.
Thank goodness. That could've ruined countless box office debates in the future.
Unfortunately I think that's what's gonna happen. . . .
