Why did this not get a UK cinema release?


I'm baffled as to why this was never released in British cinemas. Anyone know why?

If the movie didn't do that well on its American release, they may have decided just to release it on video everywhere else.
Often the performance in US cinemas will determine how a movie is released around the rest of the world.

Probably because Canada has always been completely incompetent about releasing their film work anywhere. It's like a closed dome.

The UK, Australia and New Zealand never seem to have that problem.
