20th Century Fox Korea on Friday announced that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will open in South Korean theaters on July 10 instead of on July 16, igniting vehement protest among local cineastes. The last-minute change will most likely affect the number of screens that would have been allotted to smaller movies released that week. The association said “This abrupt change in the release date for such a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster goes against film business ethics. This gives way to not only chaos in the basic order of the film market but also great damage for others.”
