I have two questions.

1. I know the film did terrible at the box office in the US but how is it doing in the rest of the world? Will it make money? Has it been released in Macedonia and Greece yet? How has it done there? Hmm, seems I've already surpassed my two questions - sorry.

2. It seems that Stone is taking a lot of grief about this film. Is there any way to let him know that there are many of us out here that truely enjoyed the film and have seem it more than once?

All I can tell you is that it has been released in Macedonia and the rest of Greece early December and is still on the screens. As far as I know it was also released in Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia too.

Hi Cinhoo, the movie was released in Macedonia 2 weeks before the new year and it did very well - of course, it is european public so any movie comming from USA is branded a ' holiwood' movie but most people liked it.

Yes Vulgaren, and I am from Macedonia in Greece and Greece recognises your country as F.Y.R.O.M. like the majority of the United Nations.

OK lala - you can call my country as you wish - cheer up. Its true, not all countries recognised Macedonia under its constitutional name but USA, Russia and *** did amid another 100.
However UN recognised us as Macedonians and our language Macedonian.

I call you Greek from Macedonia, Greece. I have respect to all Greeks and no need for hate - just makes you weak.

Well cindoo15, I was hoping someone else was wondering that. I think the film is cracking (had to wait a bit until it came out over here though), and I feel terrible that while all those involved have been subjected to extreme negativity on a grand scale, they must be pretty oblivious to people like us. It would be great to make our view a bit better publicised. Let me know if you discover a way.....
