We’ve been covering Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day extensively here on Cinema Blend these past few weeks and the response to nearly everything even remotely related to the film has been overwhelming. There’s little doubt that quite a few of you are wildly excited about the sequel to Troy Duffy’s 1999 film and you’re probably looking forward to Boondock 2's October 30th theatrical debut. Except, unless you’re living on the coast, you won’t be able to see it.
The film is only opening in limited release on October 30th and the film's official site has posted a list of the places you’ll be able to see it. Though it’s playing in nearly 70 locations across the nation, none of them are located in middle America. They’re not even in mid-middle America. Bottom line, unless you live in New York, California, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island, or Massachusetts, you’re shit out of luck… at least for now.
The film's distributor hasn’t announced any plans to open the film wider yet but it looks like they may be trying to pull the same bit that Paramount pulled off a few weeks go with Paranormal Activity by asking that fans DEMAND it if they want it. A page which appears to be an official setup has been created here to allow fans to demand the movie in their area. Presumably if your town gets enough clicks, they'll will consider sending All Saints Day to your town
Still, you’d think right off the bat they’d have opened it in at least a couple of places that aren’t by the ocean. Don’t those people have it good enough already, with their clam chowder and surfing? The least you could do is give us landlocked losers a glimpse at Boondocks II. What about Chicago? I hear they like both movies and organized crime there.
Below is a complete breakdown of all the places you will be able to see All Saints Day on October 30th. If it’s not playing near you, give them a piece of your mind by demanding it in your town. Beware, you’ll be forced to deal with a lot of registration and marketing spam before they’ll register your vote. You’ll have to earn it.
