Critch: tjsands1118: Grimlock2099: 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?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.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.
