Why hasn’t the movie “Precious” come to this area?

“Hi…I would really like to know why the movie “Precious” hasn’t come to this area?  It seems to me that a lot of controversial movies either get here late or never….is this area so backward that we can’t except subjects that are taboo? Example: Brokeback Mountain….”

WECT reporter Casey Roman actually did a story on why movies like “Precious” and “Good Hair” were not being shown locally in November.  We were told that those movies were on a limited release.  Depending on the buzz they received, they had a chance of making it into the smaller markets as well.  Limited release typically means movies play in the larger cities first.

Precious actually did play at Regal Mayfaire Cinema late last year for several weeks.  We talked with an employee over there today, who said that Precious may be released again due to the awards season buzz the movie is receiving.  Actress Mo’Nique received a Golden Globe Sunday for her job as a supporting actress.

A manager over at the Carmike Cinemas told us they missed out on Precious the first time around, but will probably get it in when it’s released again.
