From Japan Today:
Keanu Reeves and Jada Pinkett Smith meet the press in Tokyo Tuesday. The stars of “The Matrix Revolutions” will be on hand in Tokyo tomorrow when the film premieres in 123 countries at exactly the same time. In Japan’s case, the first screening will be at 11 p.m.
Just goes to show you how big a movie market Japan has become. It’s become almost a weekly occurance to see big Hollywood stars come to Tokyo and have their movies premiere at the Roppongi Hills Virgin Cinemas.
