Bring 'Sorry to Bother You' to Australia for theatrical release

This petition made change with 340 supporters!


The independent, pro-union, anti-capitalist film 'Sorry To Bother You' has been a smash hit in the US, but distributors claim that '"Black movies" don't do well internationally and r treating it as such' (despite the fact that BlackkKlansman is performing well in Australian cinemas as we speak).

STBY is outperforming other films in theatres which DO have international distribution. This petition is a call on eOne to bring 'Sorry to Bother You' to Australia and confront the racist notion that "black movies" don't do well internationally.
