Avatar makes 2.1 million euros ($3 million) in one day after release in Italy

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Avatar was finally released in Italy on the 15th of January (the last country in the world, after Georgia) where it made $3 million in a single day, a new record after the previous record set by Ice Age 3 (L'Era Glaciale 3). Avatar is available in 925 locations throughout, the country, 416 of which have 3D.

In other news, Sam Worthington has signed up for the sequel. The next film won't take as long as the first one did, but by the time it comes out we should have some idea of what the Alpha Centauri system is actually like. If a gas giant is discovered around Alpha Centauri A it'll be interesting to see whether people start calling it Polyphemus.

Just curious...are these English-language films generally subtitled or dubbed when shown in non-English-speaking countries?

It was dubbed here in Lithuania.

Oops, I meant "subtitled". Contrary to the TV, almost all movies in the cinema are subbed.

i believe the same is true of japan (most are subtitled), although i've only watched a couple of movies on tv here, not in any cinemas

In Brazil almost all theatre play subbed movies with the odd dub offered. In Russia almost all of them are dubbed. Pretty annoying to me. :-P

I heard my share of CRAPPY dubs in Russia.
