    Marcus Theatres also didn't release Sweeney Todd on its release date (Dec. 21). Seems like they're kinda uptight with negotiations.

    “Our ongoing negotiations have not resulted in film terms that are acceptable to Marcus Theatres and this film studio. Unfortunately, Cloverfield will not be exhibited on the date of its first run availability at our theatres.”

    what exactly is "acceptable terms"?

    I can still go see it because there's an AMC, but only ONE in the city . . . which means it will pry be packed to the brim, and it's in a mall :( a busy ass mall!! :cmad:

    Well, Paramount might want a little more of the cut per ticket than Marcus is willing to give up. Which is stupid, because regardless the charge from Paramount, Marcus will still make big money off this movie.

    Exactly.

    I'm sure this situation with Cloverfield will hurt big, whereas Sweeney Todd took a couple weeks to expand.

    I'm glad the major theatre in my town is a Regal (which is getting the movie Friday. I checked.)

    But...*sob*....alas....it's almost been a MONTH since Sweeney Todd has been out...and it STILL isn't here!!! :csad:

    Well that sucks. Actually, I only have Regal Cinemas, AMC, and Cinemark around my way. I couldn't care less.
