What do you mean encourage

Anyway the piracy isn't going to affect the US release since all foreign versions are dubbed and Americans hate reading subtitles .

No, not all of them are dubbed. Plus there's the UK & Australia where it's already out.
Anyway, as of yesterday there is one version out with Russian sound. I'm sure it won't take longer than a day or two for English sound copies.

Imo the best reason that IM2 won't be affected by piracy this early is that nobody wants to see such a movie (effects, battles and all that) in a crappy cam version, on a small screen. Maybe they would have a problem if a dvd/blu-ray quality copy was out there.
Plus the fact that it has become one of those must see, exciting, fun events.

Just to put an example, Iron Man 2 was released here both dubbed in spanish and in subtitled versions. I saw it subtitled, of course.

^^ Even here in Taiwan it's in English with Mandarin subtitles.

Salvor Hardin: since this is a place with a lot of piracy, the fact that it was sold out last night shows that you're onto something with people wanting to see this in quality.

Strange that this movie is released in Europe
And Australia

before in America, given that it's an American movie, featuring American actors and based on an American comic book chatacter.

Seriously, what kind of crap is that?
We've been putting up with it for years.

Your turn now.

Re: Iron Man 2 - Grading & Discussion Thread (spoilers guaranteed)

Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios opened Iron Man 2 internationally a week earlier to give it more time before the World Cup starts on June 11th. The highly-anticipated sequel earned an impressive $100.2 million its first five days from 6,764 theaters in 53 foreign markets for a strong average of $14,814 per site. IMAX Corporation reported that the film grossed $2.25 million at 48 IMAX theaters overseas - an average of $46,875. That's a new record for a 2D release, surpassing 2009's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen ($2.1 million).

But, see, you have to wait to see our movies. Do your movies get released here before there?

Trailers are often made before the final cut of the film, and by different people. The "practice" of deleted, removed, or altered scenes has been part of the movie/trailer relationship forever. This is nothing new.

I refuse to believe this ranks anywhere near TF:2.
I had iffy vibes about Revenge of Fallen just with the trailer I don't get that with IM:2.
