Carl Roberts makes some very sound points in his article Netflix vs Cinema – The World gets Shafted on the seeming removal of choice to view the new Shaft in cinemas outside of the USA. So far all that has been announced is the movie will stream on Netflix worldwide from 28 June. The movie has been given no official BBFC certification in the UK and is not listed on any of the reliable sites showing UK cinema release dates. As the promotional campaign gathers momentum, Shaft fans outside of the USA will feel extremely miffed they will have to subscribe to a streaming service if they want to see this movie. Dubious tactics and not at all supportive of the cinema experience.
