UK release info just uploaded to Facebook:
I was kind of guessing the UK release would be a January 2019 release and the November 2018 USA digital release would be jumping the shark.
I hate to say it but.............this will be a torrential rain release for me.....
Well at least I bought a full priced cinema ticket, so I've done my part.
When supporting a franchise, purchasing a cinema ticket but bootlegging a home video copy is not fully doing one's part in my opinion.
And here I thought it was a joke about the weather in England or something.
As for "doing one's part", I think that is definitely subjective. Calling out problems and mistakes in a civil/respectful fashion is also doing one's part. Like when some people say you have to support your favorite sports team, even when they lose constantly, or you're not a true fan. I disagree with that notion. You locate the problem, and either remove it and/or press for change. That's how things improve.
So I did my part by not buying a ticket. I simply couldn't and wouldn't support the nutty approach this movie took with the franchise.
