Re: Will you be able to resist boot legged copies of STID?

As an aside, anyone understand why movie studios are making major releases outside of North America as opposed to in the US first now as a marketing strategy?

Because this strategy will increase the boot legging of films here.
Because most major films actually make more money overseas than in the US now. Studios don't mind bootlegging of films as much, because they know people don't like camrips, but if there's a screener copy leaked, they'll flip their shit. That said, the bootlegs could help boost DVD/BD sales down the road by exposing more people to the movie, so it's not a total loss.
