    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.
    Lets focus on this Joyous holiday, and talk shop later.

    They release comedies in the US first because most comedies are made for the US market. There are exceptions of course... But it this aint the average comedy because of the controversy...and hence should in no way be treated as the typical "comedy" movie. That is what Sony has done and it has lost tons of money doing it... idiotic.

    Indeed. I wish Sony had stuck to its ground.

    How you feel it should be treated has nothing to do with how Columbia has dealt with Seth Rogen movies in the past. Again, it didn't deviate from how it has treated his movies in the past and you seem to have an issue with it. Time will tell whether it was a good economic decision or not.

    The movie looks like a real dog. KJU was doing the US a favor.

    Im gonna be up north in a few days, and plan to watch it, as of now all I have seen is the KJU death scene (like the auto grenade) and the hype online and in media-its well worth few bucks, some christmas cheer, and some booze. But who knows?

    I think there is a good chance that the hype about the movie may propel it to become more profitable than whatever Sony lost in the cyber attack. The cyber attackers will end up with a non winner.

    I pirated it since isn't available in Canada because Sony sucks, and watched it last night.

    Well they locked access to the U.S. only and it is very popular on torrent sites right now so right out of the get go they are probably losing money because they only released it in the U.S..
