Its a bit strange opening a week and a day before the US isn't is, is something happening in the US to stop opening this week.
I'm sure I've read that this is a growing trend for the big tentpole movies. Lots of stuff that saw mediocre returns in the US made a killing overseas so, increasingly, the big movies are opening overseas first. That's apparently why Battleship opened in Europe first.
I wish I could remember the source of this info. Be pretty interesting if it's true.
Hope everyone is doing well. I've been trying to get my festival program ready for design and printing. I managed to increase our ad revenue this year (yay!) Work will be mayhem from now until June but so far, it's been the good kind of mayhem.
arizona, that story about your friend Med sounds so stressful. Your request for positive energy is received. It sounds like he deserves a very large break. I hope he gets it. Good luck with school!
