'Sicko' to open early

The pre-release pirating of Sicko has already had one effect on the film’s reception in theaters – it’s opening a week early.

Variety reports the documentary will bow a week earlier than planned in New York, followed by sneak previews at 43 theaters in more than 30 markets Saturday. The film will then expand to an undetermined number of screens on its original release date of June 29. No word on whether or not you’ll be able to watch it on your new iPhone, set to be released the same day.
