I know this guy Cameron. He works at a movie theatre, a multiplex.
The other day, he received the following message from the theatre's publicist:
For publicity and piracy combating reasons, Warner Bros. is going ahead with plans to release The Matrix Revolutions simultaneously on Wednesday, November 5th at the exact same time worldwide, 6AM PST, 9AM EST.
Get those coffee orders in now. :-)
Warners couldn't at least have the rest of the world accommodate a sensible release time in North America? 6:00 AM in Los Angeles is sometime between 7:00-8:30 PM in Pakistan, Uzbekistan, India, Bangladesh and Burma. Stupid third world countries… I say "fuck them"! Let them pull all-nighters! They don't even like American movies they have that Bollywood shit!
