|Kalma lang pre, dali na manlang ang 30!|
One source states that the Philippine release date for IMMORTALS is November 30, 2011. The official international release date of the movie is November 11, 2011. And just like any big movie, we are usually included to be among the countries that enjoy simultaneous international release (sometimes, Philippine release dates even come in advance than U.S. and U.K. releases). In the case of IMMORTALS, we were simply not included in its simultaneous international release list. Which seems like a big mistake because the Philippines has been one of the biggest Hollywood-patronizing countries, but at the same time, is one of the countries where piracy and torrent activity is rampant.
A vast amount of ticket sales for IMMORTALS would have been made this week, mainly because there’s a sincerely large amount of people who can’t wait to watch it, and there’s an almost similar large number who’ll watch it because they cannot get that from torrent just yet. By the time the November 30 Philippine release date comes around, many would have already watched the movie via torrent. Big mistake, Hollywood… never underestimate how Pinoys have their lust for movies.
