Movie Releases

Frequently Asked Questions

    Are movies released the same day in America and Canada?
    Typically, are movies released in theaters the same day in America and Canada?
    If there are exceptions, could you please provide an example of a movie?

    • ANSWER:
      Not always. It just depends on the studio and the blockbuster value of the film.

      For example - Liam Neeson's Unknown
      This movie was released in the USA and Canada on the same date

      But then a movie like the King's Speech
      It was released on different days'

    Which site would you recommend to watch the latest movie releases or trailers online? I am looking for a way to decide which movie to go to in the cinema.

    • ANSWER:
      You can watch the trailers on youtube or apple.

    Who are the idiots that keep going to opening weekend movie releases?
    I keep hearing about the 15 million dollars for a box office movie release in the first week and I wonder who goes to these movies and why? I must admit I once did it but not when a movie cost what it does these days. I could see it for a great movie that was worth the wait for but most of these nowadays are junk and I can wait. Are those that go the first week getting a jump start on their lives by getting extra knowledge on life by seeing that movie? Are they shown how to avoid getting blown up in Iraq or what those in 911 should have done that day and didn't? I fail to see what the big rush is unless of course it is a status thing. Movies today are my videos of tomorrow, I can wait but can you?
    To Nana, it isn't the kids movies I am referring to at all, like you said they are aniticpated long in advance. The movies like I know what you did 3 summers ago, or Snakes on a Plane, or 911 or some other stupid junk Hollywood dreams up. Kids movies don't rank in the stupid movie categories like some of these other no brain collages.
    No Ayesha I am not a first weekend movie goer if that is what you mean.

    • ANSWER:
      I do not beleive they are idiots but their are four classifications.
      1.Those that have the money to afford the entrance fee with or without guest, and are movie goers.
      Their is a rise in drive in theatres.
      2.Their are fans of certain genres(books, comics, ideas) thus james bond, star wars, harry potter, snakes on the plane. All have legions of fans who communicate and go to conventions. So they know and prepare economically for these events. The poorer ones make a more important trip out of it.
      3.Then their are industry people. I know many film students who find a way. They want to see how this is done and how that is done. And most big budget films have technical aspects which should be researched by young film makers.
      4.Addicts- people who do not have the money, are not film lovers, do not have an interest in the genre and are not students or film industry people. These people are lonely and get high going to films the same way some crack heads, cigarette smokers, game hunters, cake eaters, and others with an addiction does.

      You must add another aspect to america. It commercializes everything. How many european americans and other americans cared to learn anything about traditional afircan americans until roots? How many non latino's cared to learn about anything latino until the milagro beanfield war? How many etc's?
      So it is a mix of the movie goers and then america's culture.

    How many were movies released in each cinema for a month in 1970s or 1980s?

    • ANSWER:

    How often are movies released from the Disney Vault?
    I know Disney has a select time where they release certain movies from "The Vault". And once they go back in its damn near impossible to find them again. I want to know how often are the movies released? And when will The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan and Bambi be released?

    • ANSWER:
      Bambi was JUST released, The Lion King is coming soon, if it's not out already. You might still be able to find a copy of Peter Pan (I bought one about a year ago.) But for The Little Mermaid I'd try Amazon or eBay.

    Why do you wait in line at a midnight movie release?
    Why do you wait in line at a midnight movie release? If you have pre-ordered tickets, why the heck would you wait in line for 3 or 4 hours before the movie starts...just to get a good seat or am I missing something? It just makes no sense.

    • ANSWER:
      2 reasons:

      1) good seats. I'm going to the midnight premier of "The Dark Knight Rises" tonight. I plan on waiting in line for 1-2 hours. Why? Because when "The Dark Knight" premiered, i came in at 10:30, and was basically at the end of the line. When i got into the actual theater, there were no open seats. You try to sit in the front and hold your neck up for 3 hours! A mistake i won't make twice

      2) Very few people go to the movies alone. Tonight, i'm going with 15 friends. If we get there too late, we won't get to sit together = no fun

    do makeup artists who work for movies get paid only when the movie is released?
    im doing makeup for this little movie about janye mansield and im starting tonight. the guy who offered me the job told me that i would be getting paid when the movie releases world wide.

    im just wondering if its true! thank you!

    Alex Cross movie releases next week, should i read book first or see movie?
    I'm a huge James Patterson fan, I've read all the Women's Murder Club series but none of the Alex Cross books..
    The movie 'Alex Cross' releases in UK cinemas November 30th, thats next week! The book is already out. I'm quite a fast reader so 1 week is all i need anyway to read it before the movie releases but should read the book first or watch the movie first? i loved Morgan Freeman in Along Came A Spider and Kiss The Girls, so 'im very excited by this new film!

    • ANSWER:
      WATCH THE MOVIE FIRST. This way when you go to read the book you have an idea for what the characters look like. Also they always leave a Ton of events out in the movie.So if you read the book first, the whole time while you're watching the movie you're like "that didn't happen" or "They left that out!" Or the big one, "What the hell?" MOVIE FIRST, BOOK SECOND. Plus they always screw up endings in movies. Like Hunger Games: some people are like, what up with the berries? In the book, though, you find out the whole 'behind' the scenes events. So hope that helped!

      Ps: Can You PLEASE PLEASE, lol, answer my latest question? It'll take 5minutes of your time??!

    What is the name of the site where you can watch New Movie Releases same day on their site? (Like Netflix)?
    I know there is a site out there that allows you to see New Movie Releases the same day they come out in theaters but on their site. And it's legit because I have seen commmercials about it but cannot remember the name of the site it is kind of like a Netflix site but it is not Netflix.

    If you know let me know! Please and thank you 😀

    • ANSWER:
      There is no such least not in the United States or Canada. There are some sites like this in other countries...notably India.

      For years movie studios have been trying to come to some agreement with either Netflix or Hulu Plus to allow same day streaming for roughly 25 to 35 dollars per movie. but all attempts at that have fallen through.

      Basically if you actually saw a legitimate site that allowed this it would be the largest streaming website in the world. It would dwarf Netflix in terms of bandwidth. And everyone would know the name of the site but I can promise you that nobody will be able to give the doesn't exist.

    Help with a movie, released after 2000:a man in the wild west refuses to sell his land to a railway company?
    Help with a movie, released after 2000:a man in the wild west refuses to sell his land to a railway company?
    It is not There Will Be Blood or Appaleousa, or 3:10 to Yuma, It is also not True Grit or Open Range, but is set in a similar environment.
    The farmer or land owner refuses to sell his part of the land to the company and they come after him, if I recall, they even try setting some of his property on fire.

    When are the booking of a new movie release tickets be open to public?
    i wanted to know actually when a movie releases on friday then when will the bookings be open to us??? like wednesday night 12 or sumthing??? plz tell me........

    • ANSWER:
      You can usually only buy tickets for movies on the "day of."

      However, when certain movies are considered blockbusters (usually summer releases), there will be occasions in which you can buy tickets as early as months ahead of time to the "week of."

      SO, as you can see...early purchases are made available for films that are expected to draw a large audience...and that mostly happens in the summer.

    What are the names of Sherlock Holmes movies?
    I know that a movie released on 2009. I'm planning to buy a dvd and I want to know the name.
    And.. I'll watch it with my parents so is it have any nude or sexual scenes?

    • ANSWER:
      The movie is just called "Sherlock Holmes". The sequel is not out yet, but it will be called "Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows"

      There are two "nude" scenes in the movie, but you don't really see anything. The first is where Sherlock is drugged by Irene and wakes up tied to a bed, naked. The second is the scene where Lord Blackwater's father is murdered while taking a bath.

      There's quite a bit of sexual innuendo/jokes in the movie, but no real sexual content.

    Was the youtube movie the only reason the Muslim states started rebelling?
    Or was there another incident that happened around the time of the movies release. I ask because its obviously an art project home movie... Barely a B grade made for TV movie.

    • ANSWER:
      No, the youtube movie was not the only reason. The anger and intent has been ongoing and has been there for a long time. They pretty much use any excuse they can. Although that was not the only reason, it was a good enough one to make them react and show the anger that has been building. This is not the first time, nor will it be the last. The Middle East is having great problems now and probably will for quite awhile to come. Anything they can use, they will.

    What is the similarity or reference between the movie The Raven and Edgar Allen Poes poem?
    The movie release April 27. I don't know how the poem leads to serial killing.

    • ANSWER:
      It's not just The Raven. It's a bunch of his stories. You should read them if you like dark and creepy stuff, they're great! Most have murders and deaths, which are then reenacted by a "fan" of his in the movie. Anyway, I think they decided to call it The Raven because that seems to be the poem of his that people know the most.

    Is it possible to watch a movie on a plane while its in the theater?
    I recently flied with New Zealand Air, and I couldn't believe the choice of movies I had. Iron Man 2, Shrek 4 etc. movies that are still on theaters!
    How is this possible? Are they other places than the theaters that you can watch new movie releases? I always thought this wasn't possible.

    • ANSWER:
      OMG imagine watching Inception on a plane! If anyone has seen it they'll know what im talking about ;P..But yea. We don't have that in the US, your country recieved them after the original release date :/ we have to wait. Unless you mean the same time as our theatres...Then its probably some type of legal issue.

    What is the release date of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows PART 2 TRAILER?
    not the movie release date, but the trailer! i've heard that it might be tomorrow, March 11th. also, what time of day do you think it will be released? thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I'm sorry to say the release date of the trailer is currently unknown.

      There have been speculations that it may be released March 25th (as a preview before the movie Sucker Punch), but it has been said that on April 15th, when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 is released on DVD, there will be a scene from the second part on the DVD.

      And I'm not sure at all as to what time of day the trailer would be released.

    What are some good horror movies from the 80's?
    I would like to see a good horror movie released in the 80's but I don't know what to watch. I do not want to see any of the Nightmare on Elm St, Chucky, or Friday the 13th movies as I have already seen them. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      There are SO many, but here are some that I remember seeing when I was (a little) younger-
      Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original)
      Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker
      The Shinning
      My Bloody Valentine
      April Fool's Day
      The Hitcher (excellent)
      The Howling
      American Gothic
      Amityville Horror

      If you like "old" horror movies you should enjoy these. I hope so.

    Do movies release earlier in New York or Cali?
    I have a 20$ bet with my mom, she believes that movies release earlier in California and New York and i disagree with her. And this bet started about Black Swan. she thinks that Black Swan released earlier in New York and Cali. and we live in boise idaho.

    • ANSWER:
      Ok here's the thing. Technically you both are right. When a movie gets made, it will typically be "premiered" somewhere big like Hollywood or New York. This primer however, is usually meant only for special guests like the actors, cast, and production crew. However, once past it's first private showing in Hollywood or NY, it then gets released to the rest of the country on the same date. Movies typically get released on a Friday, and are shown by theaters all around the country (this is the advertised date that we see during previews). However, certain theaters may not show the movie on the date that is advertised, but that has to do entirely with the individual theater (some may only show movies that have been out for a few weeks or a month).

      If we're getting very technical here, the movies first get released in California because of the time difference, but it seems like you are more generally speaking. Hope this helps.

    Are certain types of movies released at a certain time of year?
    Yet again google has failed to understand my question. I was wonderin if certain types or genres of movies are released at certain times of the year( e.g. Comedy movies are released during spring time)? Also are more box office hits( big deal movies) released in the summer time compared to the rest of the year? Anyone with knowledge on the science behind releasing movies please reply!! Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Absolutely. The Oscar contenders are almost always released in the fall so that they will be eligible for that year's submissions. This is why critics always call controversial or emotionally heavy films released in that time "Oscar bait".

      As you said, the big budget blockbusters are summer releases. This is because the demographic with the highest level of disposable income (preteens/teens) just got out of school and have a ton of free time on their hands that they'd just love to spend hanging out with friends (at the theater). This is also why all those big budget movies tend to be rather "immature", never over PG-13, and are heavy on the effects and action - to draw those junior highers in. Eg: Transformers, comic book movies, etc.

      Romantic comedies roll in around the holidays because that's when single women are feeling lonely and want to see them and women who have husbands/boyfriends will drag their dates to them as a "mood setter".

      Family/heart-warming films also tend to be released around the holidays, because of that holiday mood. Everyone wants to spend time with their families around then, and feel good about humanity.

      Horror movies tend to be around fall, because of Halloween, and the fact that they generally don't pull in enough of an audience to try to compete with the summer blockbusters, so they come later. They also provide the more "no thought required/fun" choice against those heavily intellectual/artsy Oscar baiters.

    What do you call people that review movies?
    Anyone can sign up to do this. You go to I guess a theatre or something long before the movie released and you get to review the movies! I forgot what it is called, does anyone know?

    • ANSWER:
      There are movie critics but you must be established to be taken seriously. There are also test audiences who view it and give feedback to the producers.

    Was there an article about movies be transferred from one location to every theatre?
    I am trying to write a speech about how to avoid the theatres crowded with annoying movie goers.

    The question i will like to somehow answer is; Will future technology bring a revolution to the movie theatres? (Almost like paperview only new movie releases in which they will pay the regular ticket price to watch the movie at home.

    I heard about how that there will be a way to transfer movies from one location to every theatre.

    They are a lot of people who hate going to movies because of others.

    Please if anyone have any ideas of some great points i speak on or some resources on the net. I haven't been having much luck finding anything. I would appreciate it. Thanks.

    I hope i made some since. I've been researching and still haven't found the article i heard about.

    • ANSWER:
      The technology where a film is transferred electronically to multiple theaters is called "digital cinema." Theaters receive the films on satellite dishes and store the data on a hard drive. The film is then played back using the hard drive and a video projector... there is no physical film involved.

      There are lots of benefits to this, including not having to make thousands of expensive film prints and shipping heavy reels of film. The quality in a digital system is much higher, as there is no possibility of scratches, burns, mistracking or other film glitches.

      The big problem is that film studios are paranoid about the possibility of losing control of the viewer count. They can get a count of every head in a movie theater now but they won't be able to do that in your home. Would you be willing to pay to watch a first-run picture in your home? The studios may want to charge something like that to offset the fact that you could have 8-10 people watching and the studios have no way to count.

      The technology exists to do what you describe but the business model is not there yet.

    Are porn movies released in normal cinemas in US and Europe?
    Well, I live in at a place where porn is kind of banned. So, I am just wondering whether porn movies are released in cinemas or not. What about the LGBT porn?

    • ANSWER:
      Just about all porn movies are straight to video in the US. These houses were always kind of sleazy and even those that were interested in that kind of films would avoid them. That plus the neighbors would try to close them down with zoning laws. Most of the stuff is available only over the Internet. z.

    What software was used to make early Pixar movies such as the first Toy Story movie, released in 1995, and is it available on the market?
