no Lone Ranger review from me for a while yet

Or The Heat. Or White House Down. Or Grown Ups 2.

This is because these films don’t open in the U.K. for weeks and weeks still.

Reviews of R.I.P.D., The Conjuring, Red 2, Turbo, and Elysium also likely won’t come till after their North American release dates, because the U.K. releases are many weeks later. It’s possible I may get very early screenings of some of these and not be embargoed. Or maybe not, either.

Just giving you a heads up, because I see from my site stats that some people have been searching for reviews of some of these flicks. Sometimes we get films earlier than the U.S. and Canada — as with The World’s End, the new Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright film, which I’ll see tonight and will be able to talk about immediately; it opens mid August in North America, about a month after the U.K. release. But sometimes we don’t.

In short: I’m still in London, and will be at least through the end of this year.

P.S.: If you join the Daily Digest mailing list (signup form in the sidebar), you’ll get an email every day with links to that day’s new posts here, including, of course, the latest reviews.

    “…at least through the end of this year.” Did I miss something? Are you thinking of moving elsewhere?

  • Back to New York, eventually, if anywhere. But I don’t know when — I’m still waiting for something amazing to happen.

    AH. Well, good luck, wherever you land! =)

    When I first started reading this site, back in [mumble], it was often a two or three months between US and UK film releases. Apart from the limited marketing resources (you can only trot out the stars to one national opening at a time) I find it weird that this is still done, particularly with the death of expensive celluloid.
