    Re: New 'Harry Potter' Movie Premieres In Japan

    what's up with movies premiering first in Japan. are the studios worried it won't make money internationally? i mean SM3 premiered first in Japan and it opened 1 week internationally prior to the US opening date in order to get a head start in the box office.

    I think they spread out the release dates so that the actors can make it to the premieres. Having the actors go out to the country the movie is premiering in is just a marketing strategy to attract attention to the movie. Makes sense to me.... even though I'm now very jealous of those in Japan.
