I don't, and believe they want as much exposure as possible to guarantee bums on seats and as many watching the film in cinemas as possible.

In terms of counter-programming, smaller movies rely on word-of-mouth, adverts in magazines, on radio, and TV, using a relatively small budget to reach the target audience (those not interested in whatever blockbuster is going to dominate the cinemas at the time) with minimal financial outlay.
You be surprised how many people i know that dont watch many films outside the Hollywood/ Blockbuster zone and think they be rubbish because its not a success if it hardly gets much publicity. And can barely name a film if it isnt.

Actually, I don't think I would. It is a bit like those who only know music that is in the charts and played on Radio One.

I'm sure there have been rumours of a female version since about a year after the Ang Lee film was released, probably including at least one pornographic film.

Besides, one of the best films of last year was about forbidden lesbian love: Todd Haynes' sublime Carol.

Surely this must be a first japanese making a remake of a American film.
And not the other way round.
