    Oh hey, I know that guy...

    Newcastle literally lives and breathes football, so I doubt we'll get Tf4 until September :rolleyes:  Guess I'll have to give up hope of going relatively spoiler free in to the Metrocentre IMAX, I'd have to just give up internet entirely.

    no offense to anyone involved, or any of the countries, but this is probably the stupidest thing I've ever heard of.....

    if you wanna watch "soccer" stay home and watch it. maybe go to the movies after the game


    this is the most ridiculous thing Ive heard since changing Slag's name because "its sexual" . give me a break

    so when does the movie release in the US of A? still end of june or later now?

    "hey sorry everyone, X-Men isnt coming to theatres , due to the NBA playoffs. We'll release it when that's done..."

    I feel for the folks who have to wait longer-and I'm really not even surprised at this decision. If people who aren't into sports can DVR things, why can't the hardcore sports fans do the same?

    I wouldn't even be surprised if Hasbro/Paramount again pulls (with the film release date) what they initially pulled concerning the very plainly stated mention of a theatrical trailer thru the TF4 app -only to come back saying, "We meant the trailer for the app". If they think that piracy is a problem now, they have a RUDE awakening coming. Amazing how much power is given to green pieces of cotton & paper. . . .SMDH.

    Yes they are. I was in Brazil for the 2002 World Cup. I was dating a Brazilian chick at the time and she was visiting family. India and Pakistan at the time were on the verge of nuclear war and the lead story on the news was Ronaldo's hair. Since the game's were at like 3:00am and 8:00am all the news stories were how were people going to cope and how some offices were setting up tbs in their conference rooms to watch the games. In Sao Paolo on Avenida Paulista which is their version of Wall Street they had giant tvs to watch the game. It was valentine's day during that time and I had no idea as no store had a display, it was all about soccer. If it wasn't for her cousin asking me what we were going to do I wouldn't have known.

    Not in the slightest I'm afraid - the film will still be released in the US at the same time and they'll probably stop working on the quality of the movie around the time they send the films to the US (Or however it works)

    It'll be the same quality as whatever they've gotten up to at the point people see it In the US as in other countries.

    Feel bad for all the fans that have to wait an extra week or two now. If I was in a situation where there was a match on during a time I had planned to see the movie, I would watch the match then see the movie another time. The delay might encourage people to look at downloading the movie instead.

    Totally to the side, but this is a good way to define what paramount sees as "soccer crazed countries."

    Well I can watch any movie anytime after its release, but a World cup soccer game where your country is playing LIVE!!!.... that's A priority for me at least and I don't expect you guys to understand or agree... At the end of the day here in US people still call football to a sport that's is being played with the hands... so to each his own

    I know dude it really sucks....a full 13 days late. Disastrous times. But i do think the emotional fallout from England failing yet again to live up to hype is probably a factor, just wont be as big a fallout as mine if i cant stay away from this site during those 13 looooonnng hard fought days an i spoil it for myself.
