"I think this goes someway to making up for making me wait two months to see the movie.
"The release date in Japan has now been announced as February 14, on Valentines Day."
Helena writes about the premiere in Japan, which is proving to be frustrating for the fans, because it seems like they'll be excluded from the chance event to line up by the red carpet and cheer like they do in other countries:
"The lack of information is absurd. One fan called the company that's arranging the event and the person told her that the Japanese premiere will not be for 'regular' people, which means that only famous people who call themselves artists will be there, not even for the film, but to make the news papers next morning.There are hundreds of fans waiting for this moment, the stars are coming, PJ is finally coming, why not make an event worthy of all this dedication to this movie? Why so top-secret?
