How many world premieres can a film have?

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?

    This just goes to show that Penelope Cruz inhabits her own world.

    In Capri there were just some scenes/extracts from the movie, not the entire film at all. The real premiere it was in Hollyowood…We’re waiting for the opening in US screens…
