    I don't have that day off from work! I think we stick with 7 4 7 and have the midnight showings as usual BIG time movies do...that get's us as close to July 3rd as we can without actually changing it

    yeah, all the mini gear toys are marked 7 4 7 as well as all the advertisements

    no need to change the release date, its only one day, and it could cause more damage then good

    I think he may want it on the 3rd as in a 10 PM showing, much like what Superman Returns did. That's just my guess.

    I think he might want the biggest opening "weekend". If 4th of July is on a Wednesday than opening on Tuesday and continuing through the weekend will really rake in the bucks.

    Most theatres do that to be honest. Cineplex always has an opening night :D

    opening mid-week almost guarantees no weekend records. You only get that when you open on a Friday.

    Man, I thought the whole point of July 4 was putting out the greatest movie ever on America's birthday. Whats the point of moving it to the day before independence day?


    It makes a statement being on the 4th

    I wouldn't really mind it if they released it on 7/3/07...wouldn't have to be in the theater with lotsa people, crying babies, etc.:) 

    Then again, I'm just a corner away from my movie theater.:D

    Well, putting it out on the 3rd means putting it out on MY birthday, so I'm cool with that. :)

    Well...the movie Independence Day was supposed to come out on Independence Day.

    And then got bumped to Wednesday, July 3.

    And then got moved to July 2. And not technically July 3 midnight showings, but >7 p.m. Tuesday evening shows.

    TFs have got a certain amount of buzz, but nothin' on the perfect storm of marketing that was ID4. Seems kinda weird to bump it to Tuesday. I figured midnight showings were a given in some places though.
