*UPDATED* Escape Plan Going Direct to DVD in Oz

So we got a new email from Dan, giving us an update on the Escape Plan fiasco, which you can check out below:

“Word from Hopscotch is that “Management have seen the Facebook flood, seen the article on all the major movie websites AND understand that fans want this in theatres…While management are “contemplating” a limited theatre release, while they wait on overseas word on the earliest they can “release Escape Plan to iTunes and DTV”…they have advised…. Call your movie houses and head offices of movie houses to let them know of the demand!

If Aussies want Escape Plan in theatres the cinema chains, Hoyts, Village etc need to know about it…So give them a call and say, you want it, that your family want it AND your friends WANT TO SEE Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone on the big screen in Escape Plan! Hoyts head office number is Sydney (02) 8071 6100 and Village Cinemas head office number is Melbourne (03) 9281 1000 Remember – DONT BE RUDE, IT WONT GET US ANYWHERE!”

So, all is not lost yet; you’ve got the contact details so good luck and here’s hoping Australia finally gets to see Escape Plan on the big screen.

 

Original Article

Say it ain’t so! I’m afraid if you’re a fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, you won’t be seeing Escape Plan on the big screen in Australia any time soon.

Dan Delts over at Moviehole was telling us how the distribution company Hopscotch is bypassing the cinema altogether and releasing the movie straight-to-DVD.

So far, the movie has already made its budget back and made over $87 million worldwide, so it’s hardly been a flop. This is a sad state of affairs and action fans are rightly up in arms about this travesty.

If you pay a visit to the Hopscotch Facebook Page you’ll see just how angry they are. If you are in Australia and want to see Escape Plan on the big screen then I would join the fans in protest.

You can send Hopscotch a Tweet: @HopscotchFilms or email them info@hopscotchfilms.com.au.
