it doesn’t really make any difference now,does it?two days is nothing compared to eight months delay.Furthermore the comments being made concernig fairness,reagarding the release date are unacceptable.There is no fair or unfair scenario.Why should the people of one country deserve to see the movie earlier than others?This is the way things are,and noone can really pass judgement on something so insubstancial.Oh and el,the answer to your question is no.In Italy,in July,they have a very hot summer,being in the northern hemisphere and all and right at the center of the Mediterranian Sea..God,the ignorance of some people is astounding!

Ditto on everything Herpo said.

I don’t understand why most people are upset about this… It’s just a two days’ delay, for God’s sake! Plus, here in Italy we love HP as much as you do. And you, English and American people, get almost everything before us. Do you really need to be this bitter because we get something before you for once in a lifetime?

ele0206 @ marauder & enrico: finalmente una cosa buona! Non so a cosa dobbiamo questa scelta, ma mi va benissimo! Mi sembra paradossale che certi inglesi o americani si sentano molto più importanti del resto del mondo..

Forgot to write: why is this unfair?? you get everything before the rest of the world. I’m sorry, but you must realise that you’re not more important.

Posted by light89 on January 24, 2009, 03:26 PM report to moderator

AAH, Its unfair !!! why earlier than us and uk?

Posted by pegah on January 25, 2009, 11:55 AM report to moderator

@el sorry, I really don’t want to seem rude or arrogant but..the idea that someone might think that July is in winter in Italy sounds a bit weird.
Italy is in northern emisphere, just like UK, Denmark..USA!
Anyway..a delay of only 2 days is not so big, don’t you think guys? So don’t complain about that ;)

@ele0206: esattissimamente. Davvero non capisco questo atteggiamento “siamo migliori di voi, non capisco perché il film esca prima da voi”.
