DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that Blue Story has forced Vue to beef up their security in their cinemas? Okay, in case you missed it, a group of teenagers armed with knives and machetes came to blows on Saturday evening at Star City in Burningham. And according to Vue, Rapman's gangland drama is to blame. Apparently, it was because the brawl broke out during the screening of the film. Aside from that, there had also been 25 reports of serious incidents in 16 cinemas of Vue. This led to the cinema company banning Blue Story from their screens. When asked for their statement, a Vue spokesperson said that the company had a hard time coming up with a decision since Blue Story was a promising film that bears an important message. Still, the banning had to be done for the welfare and safety of their customers.
However, this decision was met with racist allegations against Vue. It most especially caught the ire of Rapman, who questioned whether there were hidden reasons for the ban. According to him, the brawl wasn't caused by his movie, so he couldn't help having doubts about the company's integrity. Following this, Vue chief executive Tim Richards said that the decision had nothing to do with race. He even said that we need more films like this. After all, we need more resources to learn about racial discrimination. He also decided to rescreen Blue Story, but this time, with toughened security, Well, isn't this good news? At least you can watch Blue Story in peace now.
