Came back a few hours ago from seeing the movie. The film was great, but the entire handling of the movie stinks! There have been no ads in the newspaper and only about ten ads on TV. In Melbourne each cinema has an average of ONLY TWO screenings per day (the one at Crown had three, 1am, 10:30 am and 1:15 pm). To make matters worse, I haven't been able to find any Wing Commander Merchandise (the books, action figures or even the soundtrack!).I wish more people would have organized outings like this for the movie. Also, Mark Trzcinski reports that his local theater in Australia is not showing Wing Commander until September 23, so there might be more showtimes soon.
I'm planning to organise some WC Movie thing. It's probably going to be on next week at Crown in the City. Anyone planning to go can contact me at Sendell@rocketmail.com.
