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?
