Does the Promise of a Planted Tree Make You More Likely to See Earth?

Though I watched the Planet Earth series on TV, I still love to click through the awe-inspiring images captured for that project, and I'm planning on seeing the movie Earth in the theater this weekend.

As further incentive to get people to the theaters, Disney has promised to plant a tree for every ticket bought during the movie's opening week. What do you think of this? Does it make you more willing to fork over the money for this movie ticket? Were you going to go anyway? Or does this promise not motivate you to see the movie at all?

Almost. It's not a movie I care to see in the theaters but the thought of planting a tree did entice me a little. I'm planting my own tree anyway.

Yeah, anything with beautiful photography of earth, the planet we live on, is totally global warming propaganda. You're so right, kh61582.

I'm sure that this movie will be visually interesting however movies like this are basically just global warming propaganda so no I will not promote that by going to see it.

My whole problem with this is theyre not doing it for the whole opening week, they do it for the first three days. The first three days are Wed, Thurs, and Fri. It's like disney has millions of dollars they could put out for this but chose to do it on some of the quietest, least movie-going days of the week. Why not really put some effort into it and at least do it over the weekend

I've read that these trees (like the trees they plant when fly CO2 free) are planted in places in Africa where they take the land of small farmers so they cannot longer feed their families...

I almost never go to see movies in theaters, so I probably won't see this either.

I was going to see it any way. Such a bonus that a tree gets planted too!

i think that it's a great thing but i was going to see the movie regardless. i feel like anything that we can do to help the environment is great and planting a tree is wonderful - but the movie seems to have compelling enough content that i would have gone to see it without the added bonus there

I saw it on Earth Day! I had already seen the bulk of it on the Planet Earth series seeing it in the theatre was worth it, and definitely worth the $5 I spent :]
