Last night we reported that a theatre management in New Jersey, Edison was caught red-handed by a US distributor for fudging collections. We revealed that the theatre authorities are eating up the collections for all the movies screened at their property and were reporting less collections for their own benefit and robbing the money of distributors.
This news was about the theatre management giving less collections and not about the on-going issue of announcing bogus collections of any particular movie as is presumed by some of the people in the film industry. There is a fake mafia going on to hype collections of some big movies but this article was not about that issue.
It’s high time the US distributors took care of this issue personally and track the collections from every theater to make sure all collections are reported accurately.
