As expected theater owners are expressing anger over Sony's decision to release its animated Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs to consumers purchasing its Bravia TV sets on December 8, less than three months after its theatrical opening. New buyers of the Sony sets will receive the movie free; others wishing to purchase it early will have to shell out $24.95. The film is scheduled to be released on DVD on January 4. The Hollywood Reporter said today (Wednesday) that at least four major exhibitors, Regal, AMC, Cinemark and Marcus Theatres, plan to retaliate by pulling Meatballs from theaters at once. (It was still playing in 1,126 theaters as of last weekend, where it took in $1.3 million.)
