Sony IMO told them not to have anywhere near a 3000 theater release (mostly because major theater chains wouldn't touch the movie), they went with the internet and independent theaters. This has Columbia written all over it, not Sony.
    I heart your attempt at reality!

    Just fyi.. most movies now days are actually released overseas first. For example, the new Hobbit movie. Released on the 10-13th of December in almost 40 countries ...a week before the December 17th wide release in the US. Places like India, Russia, Peru, Iraq and many more got the Hobbit movie before the US.

    So this "strategy" you are talking about is not exactly practised much any more. Heck even US centric movies like Guardians of the Galaxy were released overseas before the US... granted only by a day or two, but still.

    Alright, some problems in this thread have been dealt with and i'd ask that everyone focus on the topic only - not each other.

    It's Christmas and it sucks having to do this right now and i really don't want to be issuing anymore mod action today. Thanks for your support, i would appreciate it.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    You know, saying that that is how Columbia would have done it anyways, doesn't mean that Columbia always releases every movie in the US first. Seth Rogen comedies generally get American releases first. Hell, most US comedies get an American release first.

    Superbad - Superbad (2007) - Release Info - IMDb - Released in US first. - Columbia
    Pineapple Express - Pineapple Express (2008) - Release Info - IMDb - Released in US first - Columbia
    This is the End - This Is the End (2013) - Release Info - IMDb - Released in US first - Columbia
    The Green Hornet - The Green Hornet (2011) - Release Info - IMDb - Released in US 2 days after opening elsewhere - Columbia
    Funny People - Released by Universal in the US - 1 day difference - Columbia internationally

    That is the extent of Rogen's relationship with Columbia. 100% of the time they distribute his movies, the US gets first pick. I see no reason for them to have done it differently this time. Then again, I haven't really followed the release dates of anything other than event movies (which, you're right, they do seem to get international releases first), so I wouldn't be able to tell you how they're doing with other movies that aren't event movies in any sense of the word. This was a ****ty two bit comedy by two stoner guys. I doubt they were going to aim for an international smash hit.
