Comment on: Gravity leads LFF online buzz
Unsurprising in the case of Gravity given the positive reviews and online chatter since Telerude - and of course the fact that it is constantly in the media having already surpassed $200m (and a very good film) Of bigger interest is how the research was conducted and how many PtV's are ultimately converted into ticket sales upon general release.
Since London is the film capital of the UK, it stands to reason that the consultation would include London-based organisations. I'm also sure that this is just the first round of consultations and that there is certainly no master plan to exclude the regions.
