Star Wars: Why some US cinemas are refusing to show The Last Jedi

Disney's strict requirements for screening may leave some smaller establishments out in the cold


Star Wars: The Last Jedi may be this year's biggest release, but don't expect it to show in every single cinema.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the huge success of both Disney's Star Wars and Marvel franchises has emboldened the studio to start making more aggressive demands from cinemas, specifically when it comes to their golden ticket, The Last Jedi.

Some owners are calling the terms "the most onerous they've ever seen", with Disney requiring 65 percent of ticket sales and a stipulation that the film be screened in the largest auditorium for at least five weeks.

This is in contrast to previous requirements of 64 percent of profits and four-week runs for previous Star Wars films. If a cinema fails to uphold the deal, they'll be subject to a five percent penalty - making Disney's total cut 70 percent of profits.

The demands are unlikely to have any great effect on major multi-screen chains, but smaller cinemas, particularly in rural areas, could be facing a major issue.

A location with, for example, only two or three screens won't exactly be inclined to dedicate an entire screen to The Last Jedi for five weeks, especially with several major other releases happening in December - Jumanji and The Greatest Showman, alongside Oscar contenders The Disaster Artist and Phantom Thread.

Fingers crossed, that won't mean fans are missing out on one of the cinematic events of the year, even if they have to make a bit of a journey to get to it.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits UK cinemas 15 December.

I don't know what's worst, the fact Disney are doing this, or 10 years of sequels and spin offs. It makes me wanna gouge my f**king eyes out.

The second is Troma’s YouTube channel, where they upload their movies for people to watch for free. The channel is updated week-by-week with films as well as “Kabukiman’s Cocktail Corner” and Kaufman’s own series “Make Your Own Damn Movies” lessons.

This should be worth looking Into.

'Peter Rabbit: The Movie'. Apparently release date is Feb '18, which is too early. It should be held back until end of March/start of April so it co-incides with Easter

I might be missing something and you may be referring to children seeing it during a school holiday, but what does Peter Rabbit have to do with Easter?

Maybe they eat rabbit pie at Easter in some areas?

You are the product of a deprived (and possibly depraved) childhood, sir!

Yep, missed all three of those when I had any interest in Peter Rabbit.
