MMFF Period puts other movies to a halt
All screenings of Avatar will be suspended for duration of the Metro Manila Film Fest starting December 25, 2009 and will resume after 2 weeks. Film Junkie was able to inquire from the management of SM Cinema who revealed that this also includes the 3-D format of Avatar. As usual during MMFF season, all the theaters are directed to screen only MMFF movies. Other upcoming Hollywood movies that have a release date around the MMFF period will obviously be moved also. Sherlock Holmes which is set for international release on December 25, is slated for a January 8, 2010 Philippine release. January 8 is also the date for Zombieland to have its Philippine release. While on January 20, it is going to be Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
