Oh, money — you slippery slope! Everybody wants you, but when they finally get you they just want you even more!!
A bitter battle is being fought behind-the-scenes in Hollywood right now and Iron Man 3 is caught in the crossfire!!
Disney (owners of Marvel) is fiercely renegotiating contracts with movie theaters exhibiting their films, but the company is using the Robert Downey Jr. & Gwyneth Paltrow summer blockbuster as a bargaining chip to do it!!
AMC, Regal, and a other huge theater chains are pissed because they feel like they've been extorted — now they're pushing back he only way they know how!
They're refusing to pre-sell tickets to the film!
IM3, which may very well be 2013's biggest film, opens in 17 days, but exhibitors are so pissed at Disney's unscrupulous tactics that they're refusing to pre-sell any movie tickets!!
Yikes!! What happens if they never come to terms?
Will theaters refuse to screen the movie all together?
Whatever the beef is between these two sides, we hope they roll it up into a patty and slap it on a George Foreman soon because we just want to see our sweet Summer flick!
We give U cash and U give us explosions, buttery delicious popcorn, and RDJ's HIGHlarious one-liners — it's a time-honored tradition, guyz, don't over think it!
