UK only. whew.
 
2013-04-12 11:05:04 AM
She took the country from the death grip of socialism to the prosperity of capitalism.

I now see why liberals hate her.
 
2013-04-12 11:05:32 AM
I wonder if the mortician humped her.

Obama wants Iron Man 3 delayed?
 
2013-04-12 11:11:29 AM
Ok, so we've had the birther thing, and the secret muslim B.S. and now you're accusing Obama of killing Margaret Thatcher?  You guys really are tards.

The real question here is...why the fark is Iron Man opening earlier in the UK than here in the states? We farking INVENTED Iron Man! but the limeys get to see it first?! Not cool, I can understand them getting James Bond or Harry Potter Movies first, but Iron Man?
 
2013-04-12 11:13:54 AM
Margaret Thatcher and ol' Ronnie Reagan prob having a tea party in hell right now.
 
2013-04-12 11:15:05 AM
How would delaying the movie make anyone care more about Thatcher?

/and more importantly, why the 1/2 month gap from UK to North American release?
 
2013-04-12 11:15:39 AM
Hope they harvest all viable organs before they bury her.

Quite a few people in Washington could use a backbone transplant.

I mean, it's Margaret Thatcher.  You'd pretty much have to, if not out of patriotism, then just to tell all your buddies you did.

That is an iron-clad assessment. Can you imagine the bank you'd make if you documented the whole thing?

This, so much this.

An American Character, based in an American City, staring American actors, made by an American Company, and the UK gets it first. It would be like running the new Doctor Who episodes on BBC America three weeks before anyone in the UK gets to see them.

You're probably trolling, but just in case:

graphics8.nytimes.com

She didn't actually reduce government spending on the UK equivalent of welfare much or at all.  She did screw over the poor in (many) other ways, so I guess you could say she was anti-socialist.
 
2013-04-12 11:30:36 AM
It's like she's getting in one final kick.

The US Market is no longer the only market that matters in the world.  These movies are made for a worldwide audience, filmed overseas, etc.  Overseas audiences are more likely to download if it doesn't get released there early.  A big overseas run just fuels hype for the US as well.

The overseas audience is also less discriminating.  Why do movies like Battleship and Die Hard 5 get released?  They make 500 million and 300 million dollars overseas.

The US is no longer important, just another country.

If only there was a movie that could prove your hypothesis wrong....maybe one with puppets...
 
2013-04-12 11:36:51 AM
My only regret in life is that I never plowed Thatcher. Just to call all of my buddies and brag about it.

Old? Yes. Unattractive? Oh hell yes. But Prime Minister?...this is bone zone.

/don't you look at me with a straight face and say you wouldn't have banged her

No Time To Explain: How would delaying the movie make anyone care more about Thatcher?

/and more importantly, why the 1/2 month gap from UK to North American release?


The studios are planning on embedding a deadly virus that kills torrent downloaders and the two week delay is the best way to ensure people keep at it even after the deaths become apparent.

This is also the plot of this week's episode of Doctor Who.

Yes. It bad enough that the evil liberals got her own Conservative party to have multiple votes of no confidence and fire her from her position, now they are unhappy that they weren't in the small percentage of people that made a massive short term gain from her policy and were in the much larger group that saw the economy tank and them all fired and benefits destroyed. Maybe they should just get over themselves.
 
2013-04-12 11:57:02 AM
Dammit!  If he'd just responded to Thatcher's death as fast as he did Ebert's, this never would have happened!

Given that your metrics are "US" and "other" when discussing revenue, I'd say that it's still quite important.

Well, it's happened before. JFK's death actually delayed the debut of Doctor Who by one day. Just like in the US, the BBC cancelled all programming to follow the story, and DW was supposed to premiere that night.
