Sometimes many Hollywood movie premieres are in Taiwan, whose population is about 23M, instead of China, Korea and Japan, which have a bigger market.

The reason is that China has a rigorous censorship.

Some movies are prohibited from hitting the big screen, and others have to be specially edited to comply with the regulation.

Korea and Japan respectively have their own laws to protect their domestic films so some movies will be pushed back one or two months later to be released .

In addition, Taiwanese people love watching movies, and the Studios think of the box office in Taiwan as an indicator to predict the Asian market.

So some movies, such as Captain American 3, will be released earlier here.
