We Love You Anne/I Love You Anne 2: How Much Longer Do We Have to Wait?

Am I going to be a senior citizen by the time We Love You Anne is released? The trailer was placed on YouTube nearly three years ago, and still no movie.

What exactly is the hold-up? Are the producers waiting for the right time to release it? Because there’s no better time than right now!
Perhaps they are intimidated by the fact that the economy-devastating January 2010 Haiti earthquake is going to affect box office receipts? Or perhaps they are brooding on the reputed destruction of Haiti’s still-functioning theaters and are wondering where they will have screenings? No problem. There’s still hotel auditoriums and halls, no? I Love You Anne made a lot of money, and we can surmise that a great deal of the movie’s revenues came from DVD sales in the United States. So the movie theater system is Haiti is on the decline, so why not do a straight-to-DVD release and have a few extras on the DVD to entice movie fans to buy the original product?

Movie fans outside of Haiti are the ones who bring in the most revenue for Haitian movies, anyway. Sheesh!

There is so much anticipation from Haitian movie fans, counting my grandmother! During the 2007-2010 years, a lot of Haitian movie lovers were gravitating towards Nigerian and Ghanaian movies, but that phase has died down considerably. The African movie/Nollywood/Gollywood overkill backfired on video store owners. Do you see the rows and rows of unsold movies in their stores?

Now, movie fans are ravenous for homegrown entertainment. There is so much rubbish [said ironically, in my best African movie voice] on the Haitian movie market right now, majority of which is produced by former communion and wedding videographers, you can be assured.

“Quality entertainment, quality entertainment”, is the cry from movie fans. Maybe the powers that be behind We Love You Anne will hear their agony and their cries and release the darn movie! Like, stat.

In the meantime, feel free to watch the trailer below:
