AMC Theaters Cave to Disney


Phew! Following the lead of Odeon, the U.K.'s largest theater chain, AMC theaters said yesterday that it will indeed carry Alice in Wonderland starting March 5. The dispute between the studio and the theater chain stemmed from Disney's decision to shorten the film's run so it would hit DVD shelves sooner. In a press release announcing that the movie would be carried, AMC CEO Gerry Lopez didn't mention the disagreement. We're guessing he just wanted to take his kids for free. [HR]
