Scott Rhodie writes a piece at Mumbrella entitled, Solo: A Marketing Disaster Story.
After Scott Rhodie received a $77 ticket to watch Solo: A Star Wars Story three hours before anyone else in Australia, he was more than a little disappointed after he realised 400 of the 500-strong crowd were paid actors.
In it he writes:
It felt badly organised from the get-go, with so many people milling around and nobody pointing us in the right direction. Then when we were told to form an orderly queue, something weird was noticeable: these people weren’t Star Wars fans.
SC Reviews comments on this story:
That story is just as amusing as this other story coming out of New Zealand, where SJWs working at cinemas walked out on their jobs in a strike on the opening day of Solo to demand…something, hurting the very franchise that caters to their own SJW messaging.
Earlier, staff at Event Cinemas declared they would walk off the job at 10pm on Wednesday. The decision came after weeks of employment negotiations between Unite Union and the cinema chain’s management broke down on Wednesday afternoon.
