film criticism by maryann johanson | since 1997

why The Avengers opened a week earlier outside the U.S. and Canada (and other adventures in social networking)

What my followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ saw today:
• For those USians and Canadians wondering why Avengers opened a week earlier internationally: It’s “to leverage May Day and other national holidays in Europe.” Make May Day a holiday, America, and avoid this disappointment again. [The Hollywood Reporter]

• Basically, Jackson says we need to see the whole film to appreciate 48fps. So then why the heck did he bother to show clips? Peter Jackson Responds to Criticism of 48-Frames Footage of ‘The Hobbit’

• No longer watchdogs. Now lapdogs. Journalmalism! Dog-training the press corps

• Google: The whole “don’t be evil” thing isn’t quite working out, is it? Data Harvesting at Google Not a Rogue Act, Report Finds

• This really is way too busy an events-heavy spring and summer for the Beeb to be pissing off the people who make it run… BBC faces mounting strike threat for diamond jubilee celebrations
