Joss Whedon's new horror The Cabin In The Woods has been given a cinematic release in Australia after outraged fans launched a petition when movie bosses declared the film would go straight to Dvd Down Under.
The innovative film, starring Australian actor Chris Hemsworth, was released in North America and Britain in April (12) and made more than $52 million (£32 million) at the box office worldwide.
However, film bosses decided not to give the film a theatrical release Down Under and fans were left fuming when the found out they would have to wait for the Dvd.
The film's distribution company Village Roadshow was bombarded with angry messages and an online petition titled 'Save The Cabin' was set up as part of a high-profile campaign to bring The Cabin in the Woods to cinemas.
Movie bosses have now bowed to the pressure and agreed to give the movie a limited release in cities including Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
A statement from Village Roadshow reads, "Your response has been overwhelming. Thank you for being so passionate about The Cabin In The Woods... We are delighted to confirm screenings in Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, along with Sydney and Melbourne, from June 14!"
