Pro-Life Film ‘Unplanned’ Blocked From Distribution in Canada

Pro-Life box office success Unplanned has been banned from Canada after major film distributors refused to circulate the film.

According to the Christian Post, two of Canada’s largest film distributors – Landmark and Cineplex – do not have any intentions of showing PureFlix’s Unplanned in Canadian theaters.

The movie’s official Twitter account announced the ban on Wednesday noting that Canada’s rejection of the movie was only the beginning. They wrote, “Canada banned #UnPlanned. Now other nations are moving towards rejecting the film. But in less than a month, you’ve donated over $30,000 to help #WhatAbbySaw reach the world. How long til we make it 1M, & can fund an unorthodox leap to the global audience?”

According to LifeSite News, the film’s writer and director Chuck Konzelman noted that Cineplex’s rejection was a major blow for the film’s success in Canada. He said, “In Canada, Cineplex basically has monopolistic power… the National Post mentions them as controlling nearly 80 percent of all movie screens, and from our limited experience, they seem to have many of the most desirable locations, in and near the major metropolitan areas.”
