Alice In Wonderland 3D won't be shown in UK and Ireland
New 3D blockbuster Alice In Wonderland by director Tim Burton won’t be screened in Odeon cinemas in the UK, Ireland and Italy, the chain said.
The stance is a response to a dispute over plans for the interval between Disney's fantasy adventure hitting cinema screens and its DVD release to be set at around three months, instead of the longer usual 17 weeks.
Odeon, which has over 100 cinemas in the UK alone, fears Disney's proposals would “inevitably set a new benchmark, leading to a 12-week window becoming rapidly standard in the UK for the majority of film titles”.
The cinema group said it would be showing the film in its Spanish, German, Portuguese and Austrian cinemas.
