You can see lots of American films in Japan, especially if you live in a big city such as Osaka. But often, films get released a few months later here. For example, I get to see the following in the next few weeks:
Up opens this weekend
Public Enemies arrives a week after
Where the Wild Things Are comes in January
So what makes James Cameron so special?
Avatar will open here around Christmas,
nearly the same time as in the U.S.
