I recently was asked about when US (blockbuster) films are released in Korea. Most of the time we get them the same day as the US. However, because piracy is huge here in Korea, some of the bigger films are actually released early. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released on April 24th in Korea, but on May 2nd in the US. Why? Because the studio knows that as soon as it hits the screens, copies will be available on the Internet. They release the films early here in an attempt to get people to see the film in the theater rather than on an illegal download.
Speaking of movies, one thing I really do like one like about going to the movies here is the seats are all reserved. There’s no lining up and trying to get the best seat in the house. You know going in, at the time of purchase, where you will be sitting. I think it is brilliant and I wish more places around the world would do it for general admission movies (I know elite theaters have this, but I’m talking about just regular theaters.)
What about where you live? Can you reserve seats?
