Thanks, Aaron, for writing that post. It was very interesting. It  
sparks a question, tho:

Can anyone explain what's behind this? Warners has been distributing  
in Japan for decades?meaning they had an office in Tokyo that was  
deeply involved in the marketing and translation of its films. I  
don't know the details beyond that, but the situation Aaron describes  
above suggests a shift of some sort or another. Anyone know?
