I’ve seen premiere tickets for sale online. How do I check to see if they are legitimate?
Premiere tickets are normally issued directly to guests on a non-transferrable basis and the availability of tickets for sale is highly unlikely. Please contact our Publicity Department here to notify us of any Premiere tickets available for sale and we will investigate further.
A film was shot at a location near me. How can we get involved and help publicise the film?
Please contact our Publicity Department here. They will be able to advise if there are any opportunities to get involved.
I’m a journalist based in AUSTRALIA and would like to access images/trailers/clips from a current or upcoming cinema release for my publication.
Please clearly state what you would like to access and outline how you would like to use the materials. We will endeavour to help you as soon as possible.
I would like to make a submission for a Screenplay idea.
Unfortunately Universal Pictures is unable to accept unsolicited works. In order for your script to be considered, we require referral and submission by an agency. We encourage you to seek advice from a reputable agency to progress your script in the industry. Please note: We do not provide contact information for any literary agents or motion picture production individuals.
Why do some of Universal Australia’s films have different release dates to the US?
The process of dating a film for release is based on a number of factors including cinema availability, talent access and competitor releases to name a few. Universal Australia always endeavours to find a date that will give the film the best chance of succeeding whilst giving Australian audiences the opportunity to see the film as early as possible.
I wish to contact one of your actors/Directors or get tickets to a Premiere.
We are unable to publicise contact details for anybody involved with our film releases. We do not give away Premiere or advance screening tickets through this website. We often run competitions for Premiere tickets on our social channels. We suggest you follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay updated on competitions
