that is often the case. but sometimes the movie suplliers are scared of piracy and stuff like that. they deliver on the day.
thats how staff get to see things early we watch that test and if anything goes wrong 1) its "tough" its a test 2) we can tell the techs whats wrong.
or films come in in pieces as they do and you get pieces 1 3 and 5 one day then the others the next.
such a shame it broken, darlo is a bit of a shed from what i have heard, (we cover it occasionally)
I know it wasnt the projectionists fault...and at least i get to see the rest today...plus the bonus of getting to see the 1st half again without paying. They were offering either passes to go back and see it or a full cash refund...i couldnt understand why there were only 4 couples getting the passes...but might be becuase they wanted to do something else with their valentines day.
Darlington cinema is a s**t hole. But we dont have transport to go through to teeside. So we had enough for 1 ticket and popcorn (got the other with Orange Wednesdays) Really bouncing about going back to see the rest tho
I was also surprised at the running time. My watch said that it was two hours in total which is not common for a comedy. I wonder if it was planned like that or there was just so much they could not drop.
WAtching the interview with Nick and Simon on Film 2007, Simon said it was xactly 2 hours long after cutting, becasue when they used to watch films when they were younger, they felt like 2 hours, so they wanted to make it 2 hours long. Also, a lot of films at 1 hour 30 mins. So its like, you get the film, then 30 mins extra free.
He also said that a lot was cut to get it down to 2 hours, so there will likely be a lot of the deleteld scenes on the DVD.
*goes back to jumping about at the prospect of another 2 pegg filled hours this evening*
