AUSTIN — The movie that spawned “Ride along” and “The Nutty Professor” has been pulled from theaters, leaving audiences wondering if it is worth the price.
The movie, which opened in Austin on March 16 and has since grossed $16.7 million at the box office, is a follow-up to a 2015 feature film called “Rent.”
It was directed by “Ridley Scott” and stars Ryan Reynolds, Amy Adams, Jack Reynor, Dwayne Johnson, and Paul Dano.
Rent was a hit at the Austin film festival, but the film is a different story.
The film is not a film at all.
“It’s a live-action, live-in-the-day fantasy movie that you’ll see on television,” said Chris Kallman, the Austin Film Commission’s director of events.
You will see an adult version of the film, and it will be different.
You won’t see an animated film.
You will see a live action film that’s more like a TV show.
This is the only time we’ve seen it.
We’ve been talking to people who have seen it and saying, ‘Oh, it’s a movie.
It’s not a real movie.
We know that.
That’s why we’ve taken the decision to pull it.
If you go to the theater and the theater staff, they’ll say, ‘We’ll be in the theaters tomorrow.’
If you go out on the street, people will be asking, ‘What is this movie?’
That’s what we’re seeing right now.
“It’s an interesting time for the Austin community, Kallmann said.
In August, the City Council approved $1 million in federal funding to renovate the movie theater and provide new technology.
But the city hasn’t announced when the movie will be back on the schedule.
