I recently asked some questions (eg https://movies.stackexchange.com/questions/10228/what-does-it-typically-cost-to-launch-a-hollywood-movie-in-a-foreign-country) about international distribution which weren't received well. Then @coleopterist pointed out that the FAQ specifically excludes questions about distribution (I admit I hadn't checked).
I was surprised to find that the topic of distribution is outside the scope. Not least because there are other questions where distribution related issues are addressed (for example: What causes a high budget title to be direct-to-DVD? or Why was there such a large gap between the US and UK release of Wreck-It Ralph? or Was Gremlins 2 the first film to re-adapt a scene for release on different media?)
Also, this seems like the ideal place to deal with the topic. Contributors here have a good range of knowledge about how movies were released as well as what is in them. Why not put it in scope?
