Variety reports that Penelope Cruz attended the world premiere of The Inquiry — the Italian movie about an ancient Roman agent who investigates the resurrection of Jesus, which FoxFaith is releasing on Good Friday under the title The Final Inquiry — last Tuesday at the Los Angeles Italia Festival. Apparently one of the main characters in the film is played by Penelope’s sister Mónica. But wait a minute, didn’t this film have its world premiere at the Capri Hollywood Film Festival in Italy two months ago?
How many world premieres can a film have?
