'Amazing Spider-Man' to Release in India Ahead of U.S. Opening

THR:
Sony Pictures India announced Monday that it will advance the India release of Amazing Spider-Man to 29 June, ahead of the film's July 3 U.S. opening.

The Marc Webb-directed summer tentpole also stars acclaimed Indian actor Irrfan Khan (Slumdog Millionaire) as Dr. Ratha, a close associate of Dr. Curt Connors aka The Lizard played by Rhys Ifans. As with most major Hollywood releases here, Spider-Man will also be dubbed in various regional languages. (Cinema, Sony Pictures Entertainment, The Amazing Spider-Man)

I guess everyone is getting a jumpstart in foreign countries now.

Yeah I don't get why all of a sudden foreign countries are now getting everything before us. It used to be it came out in the US first (at least for US made movies) and then it would take a while to make the rounds to other countries.

in an interview (forget who someone with the avengers) they said it builds hype to bring it here....Since it will be making money and get people talking.

The thing is....movies like Spider-man or Avengers already have a ton of hype, so why do is need more?

Seem to me like Hollywood wants to let it get pirated before ever coming here.....honestly. They release in countries like China or India first, and where do a lot of pirated copies originate?
