OOTP World Premiere set for Japan

The BBC is reporting that the World Premiere of Order of the Phoenix will be held in Japan on June 28th:

The Japanese capital was chosen after another highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man 3, opened there and broke box office records.

But a Warner Brothers spokeswoman said there was “no special reason” for opting to launch the film in Japan.

As previously reported, the London premiere will take place on July 3rd, and the US premiere will take place in LA on July 8th. Thanks to everyone who e-mailed with the tip!
