tbh i wouldnt wanna go to the cinema for a while after ive bought a game like gta. So yeah its probably gonna affect movie releases around the same time.

And I'm really interested in the Iron Man movie. The previews look great but I'll be far too busy with GTA IV to go the movie theater opening week.

I'd say it will hurt the movie the first couple of weeks but if its good it'll have legs and do well in the weeks afterward.

I think its awesome the game industry is so big now that movies and music releases have to try to avoid being overshadowed. This is a great trend for our industry.

It might hurt alittle bit, but me personally, I'm going to see Iron Man when it's released. So far, it looks really good.
