I'm starting to feel Chinese... all our stuff gets produced for overseas rich people and we have to wait for it to be re-imported to our shores.
Well, technically Marvel is making a lot of these in the UK now more than Hollywood, so it's not really being exported, then imported. But seriously, Avengers did it, and started a trend. Marvel seems to have continued with the idea, movies like Battleship and John Carter that tanked in the US did ok internationally before coming out in the US, Star Trek Into Darkness tried it b/c they didn't always have big International takes for ST's and wanted to try it. Pac Rim made much more int. than in the US. It is irritating that they can't do simultaneous releases though.
