I watched Zombieland a few weeks ago after it had its terrestrial TV premiere, but I noticed that it was released in 2009 which means it took five years for it to be shown. Normally it seems to take about 3-4 years after a film's release before it's shown on TV, but the length of time does seem to depend on how good/successful a film has been.

I've noticed that Inception still hasn't been on TV and that is four years old, so it must be due to be shown pretty soon.

So It got me thinking what other decent films that were released over four years ago still haven't been on terrestrial TV yet?

There are quite a few 'big' Warner films still to be shown that would normally have been shown by, or around, now (Get Smart, TDK, TDKR, Titans x 2, Sherlock Holmes x 2, Inception) plus most of the Marvel films are due to be premiered still - Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, The Avengers

Sherlock Holmes is another one that is five years old, so is due a showing on TV. I suspect that at least some of these films will be shown over Christmas though.

Also one phenomena I have noticed recently is to show the first film on TV just as the sequel is released in the cinema, such as the 21 Jump St TV premiere being used to promote the sequel.

I do wonder if Netflix has delayed the terrestrial premieres of Marvel films as Captain America, Thor, Iron Man 2 and The Avengers by showing them after Sky!

Just to let you know (if you don't know already) there is a thread on the Broadcasting forum entitled - "Movie premieres on terrestrial television" - listings and comment/discussion on confirmed movies coming our way to the terrestrial/Freeview channels (not Sky/satellite). Read here:-

The whole Batman trilogy is now on Buy and Keep in the Sky On Demand section. Which i find annoying as i haven't seen the last one..Same with Kick Ass 2. Still can't rent it.

I don't believe the original Friday Night Lights film has ever been shown on UK terrestrial TV.
