When I saw the promos for Precious I marked my calendar. The movie was scheduled to be released on November 6th. So on Friday I went online to see where it was playing, but I could not find it. I called a friend of mine and she said it was opening in selected cities on Friday and unfortunately our city was not one of the ones selected. This movie has been hyped beyond belief. As a blogger I received promotional info and trailers so I am extremely disappointed that I have to wait an additional two weeks for the release in this area. Chris Rock’s Good Hair had a similar staggered release and I still have not seen it. David Spitz, head of distribution for Lionsgate said in reference to Precious “a lot of movie-goers are not happy with the release plan right now, because it’s not in their cities yet. That’s always a good sign.” I have seen the cast of Precious interviewed everywhere and I have heard that phenomenal performances dominate the film, but I had been hyped to see it on the 6th. Hopefully I will remember to go see it on the 20th.
I Wanted to See Precious November 6th, but It Was Not In My City
