      Perth, Australia

We the undersigned are deeply saddened by your decision to dump this critically acclaimed film on to dvd and not even give us a chance to see it in theatres. This is a film made to be seen with a crowd and you will not find a more eager bunch of people willing to spend our money to see it presented properly, than us. This film has an audience waiting in Australia and New Zealand. Please do not deny us this experience!

    1. New Screenings Announced!

      Petition Organizer

      Roadshow announced screenings in Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide as well. Still a very limited release but now many more fans will have access to the film.

    2. Roadshow Confirms small release!!!

      Robert Woods
      Petition Organizer

      Sydney and Melbourne will both get the film release for a very very limited engagement. It is vital these do well to encourage a wider release. In the meantime we must keep asking for a NATIONAL release, both in Australia and New Zealand. Don't let them fob us off with this mediocre acknowledgement!

      Thanks to all that have shown support so far!

      Roadshow have yet to make any announcements regarding the release of the film theatrically and still haven't give any reason as to why it is not getting a release in the first place.

      So for now keep getting the word out! Join us on and check out our video at The more people know, the better chance we have of persuading Roadshow to give this film the treatment it deserves!

      Some films you see based on the director or actor alone - they are so consistently good. Well, Joss W is my favorite director and any movie with Chris H in is worth seeing ;)

      I am very disappointed that Australia will miss this film on the cinema screen. Please reconsider!

      I'm sick of cinemas only showing movies that have been dumbed down to cater to the mouth breathers. Joss Whedon has consistantly produced some of the best tv and movies seen in the last 20 years.The only movie I have bothered seeing at the cinima in the last 12 months is The Avengers. Why? Because of Joss. Please, I beg you not to give in to the oxygen thieves and start showing movies of quality and substance.

      Corporations should not be surprised about incubating the following type of mentality:

      "Not releasing it in the cinema? Well screw waiting for the DVD (whenever that is), I'll download it off the internet so I can join online forums in the discussion."

      I love Joss Whedon's work, and everything he touches is gold. Choosing not to release Cabin in the wake of the Avengers phenomenal international success beggars belief.

      • over 2 years ago

      Because I would hate to see such an obviously incredible movie go straight to DVD this way. Sure, I'll see it either way, but this is worth the cinema.
