I did not know there were 35mm prints of Mad Max Fury Road in the UK (I think they might only be the normal version though? – choices!) – that’s SO cool!!! I think there’s only DCP of the 1st one though which isn’t exactly a problem.
Maybe it’s worth approaching the SU campaigns lot about La Haine? It could be a good BHM film (I think – I confess that I’ve never seen it!).
I have my concerns about an AllNighter in week 4 because it doesn’t give you much chance to be able to shout about it in its own right (because over results day/welcome week, we’re shouting about the existence of the schedule/the cinema in general) and maybe people don’t necessarily have close enough friends yet that they wanna go “hey let’s go to this thing”?
W6 is reading week so probably the worst option for an AllNighter? Unless people have stopped going home @FABinhabitants? (inFABitants?)
Re. Black Adam and Amsterdam, you’ve only left 4 and 3 weeks so just a reminder to keep an eye on them bc obvs this is quite ambitious. If they’ve not opened booking (For Amsterdam, Disney are quite consistently a month before, aren’t they?) by the time we need to print, I’d guess we’d need to give Black Adam Amsterdam’s slot and then find a replacement to fill the gap. Ditto Wakanda Forever (cba to count but it’s not loads of weeks), I think we’re unlikely to get it booked before we print so we probably can’t commit to it in print, but I think we could easily do a Everything Everywhere… on it and then maybe repeat in T2 as just a KDM extension.
Oh whoops, forgot reading week was a thing (since it isn’t for me!).
Also unless I’m counting incorrectly, I believe they are both 4 weeks? (this could just be an ultra-stupid moment on my part)
And yeah I do agree they are quite ambitious, but we’ve managed to get it 4 weeks after release in term 3 for quite a few films (The Northman, Sonic 2, Morbius, Unbearable weight). Although Disney did ask for 6 weeks for Dr. Strange so we’ll probably need to have a chat about what to do.
I, indeed, cannot count. But yeah, I think we should definitely be pushing for as short windows as possible but imo we defo can’t be committing to them if they’re that level of up in the air. Have there been any Disney bookings less than 5 weeks after release?
