A Taste of Ratatouille

Movie-goers in Western Australia may have an opportunity to get an early look at Pixar's latest release "Ratatouille". Well, early compared to the rest of Australia but still late compared to many countries. Anyway, that little grumble aside, the really good news is that Telethon is holding preview screenings of Ratatouille at selected cinemas on 19th August, a good two to three weeks earlier than the official opening date of somewhere from 30th of August onwards.

If you haven't done so already, find your nearest screening and hope you can still get a ticket. At $8.50 each it's a win-win-win situation. Early screening, cheap tickets and you'll be supporting Telethon!!!

Big thanks to everyone who has anything to do with making this happen. I'll be there!

Hey Andy,
Just wanted to say 'thanks' for the comment you left on my blog, and for understanding the frustrations with text-based communications. I've been waiting for a new post from you to comment back and give my 'thanks' :). Anyway, that sucks that you guys haven't even gotten to see Ratatouille yet. Any idea why that is? It's not like it needs to be re-dubbed or subtitled or anything. Odd. Hope you enjoy it when you do finally get a chance to see it!

-Chris

The reason appears to be that Disney/Pixar didn't want to clash with the three big sequel movies released in June (Shrek 3, Spiderman 3 and Pirates 3). I don't know how this panned out in the regions where it was released though. It's a real bummer (seems it's been put off till September 6) and means a lot of people will probably just wait for the DVD. That was my plan until this offer came up.
