#UrbanATShedCrew Further Delay

So, did you all get this latest update?

So, not in February anymore but two months later?! Fingers crossed! It’s now more than three years that I saw the film, so I *am* actually looking forward to watching it… April it is…

  1. Not surprised. Not holding my breath. I fear this will go the same way as The Crucible; something I would give my eye teeth to see, but probably won’t ever get the chance.

    At least if they DO release it sometime before I die, I will be pleasantly surprised.

    • I just don’t get it, in this case. Surely, printing some DVDs can’t be that difficult, seeing that it is presumably the rights holders who are selling directly? Anyway, fingers crossed the DVD makes it in April…

      • I’m with you, I really am at a loss, why announce pre orders then delay delay unless there were so many pre orders not enough to go around? Then release and do back orders? At least once the dvd is out they will get money from the orders… Why not do PPV or Netflix?

      • No no I did not pre order it. This just sucks b/c I couldn’t see it on that Blenheim Films site b/c the rental did not work. Why don’t they try that again or allow Amazon to have rent video as an option?

          • I want to see this film so badly based on everyone who has seen it raving about it plus Richard of course and the subject matter is interesting
            Just a shit show though in my opinion
            It would behoove the studio or production company and Brady to allow as wide distribution as possible
            But it never popped up on my pay per view last Spring either

              • “less than vivacious quadruped” – lethargic swine? 😂 JK, I know the original phrase.
                You are 100% right, of course, and that was exactly why I pre-ordered the DVD – *despite* having seen the film already, *despite* having contributed to funding via poster buys, *despite* the track record. It’s just so frustrating to see the whole thing falter again and again. And frankly, I am getting to a point where my trust is beginning to crumble…

                • I get that. You‘ve all been dealing with this for years. I‘ve only been at it a minute and a half. But I just want this so badly. I haven’t been touched by a movie and a performance in that way in forever.

                      Not many films have had two premieres all be it tiny in the way of things( I was unable to attend either because of other commitments in the first and secondly the location of the second showing) and still not made a go of it, too bad Ms Brady!
                      It was shown to a select number of people in Oxfordshire? IIRC maybe Anna Friel’s home village? but it was kept so secret no well wisher could make plans in time to see it.
                      I have seen a screenshot of my name as a contributor (financially) and sometimes I think this is all I shall see!

                    • Yeah, it is just rather frustrating. I do think that the film has a lot going for itself, not least a few big names attached to it (Armitage, Friel), and definitely a capable director. And it deserves 50 premieres if that’s what it takes ;-). There is just a little bit of incomprehension on my side because a good few fans “donated” money in order to fund private ways of distributing the film, and it just seems odd that it isn’t forthcoming or taking such a long time.

  2. I received a similar message only my estimated date of arrival is April 5-10. It would be worth the wait if they decided to add special features or subtitles but that’s highly doubtful at this point. Trying to stay positive they’re going to work things out and get it released.

    • It appears as if they are giving staggered delivery dates now. I have seen various dates mentioned by people in different countries. Eugeal mentioned that the release date apparently is 25 March. Her shipment dates are between 1 and 3 April, mine is 2-4 April, yours 5-10…
