Apparently, the US Fan Base has completely ticked-off somebody at Paramount.

Opening early overseas seems to be one way they are trying to get the grosses up in international box office.

Just saw the most hilarious reaction on Trekmovie...apparently Kirk sleeping with two women (cat women) is an insult against women somehow, and against character..first time Kirk has disappointed him in 50 years. Okkkayyy...so if a woman slept with two males it's an insult against men?

I could see how someone might find it offensive to learn that in this movie Kirk is getting twice as much pussy... literally.

By extension then, I think Canada should be included in the early opening as well. Rule Britannia, God Bless the Queen, and all that sort of thing!!

Re: trek into darkness starts a week early in uk

I don't get it, what is the point behind the staggered releases in same-language nations? Iron Man 3 comes out April 18th in NZ, April 25th in Europe, and May 3rd in the US/Canada.
This is rather annoying because I have to actively avoid spoilers for two weeks before I can see the film legally.
STID is going to have the same problem now.

International box office is better for blockbusters than at home, simple as that. Paramount want a larger piece ofthe pie for their tentpole.
