Thanks, But No Thanks UPDATE!

A couple weeks ago I posted that Saudi Arabia had finally decided to open its movie theaters again, after a thirty year ban. The move was made by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, in an effort to try and drag the backward country into the 21st Century.

I then made a joke saying the first American movies allowed into the country would be such recent "hits" as The Bye Bye ManKing Arthur: Legend Of The SwordThe MummyThe Dark Tower,  The Snowman and Geostorm.

I said that seeing these horrible, horrible selections on the big screen would immediately prompt the Saudi government to ban movies again for another thirty years. Com-O-Dee!

Welp, turns out my little joke wasn't too far off!

The first two American films to be shown in Saudi Arabia in thirty years will be The Emoji Movie and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. Incredibly this is NOT a joke this time, but the bizarre and amazing truth.

Look for the real-life ban to commence in 3, 2, 1...
