Sometimes it is clear what you mean, sometimes it not so clear. Alice Springs is a town pretty much in the centre of Australia, so what about Alice Springs?

Bull twinky. If an American film had an Asian lead it'll do damned well in 3 of those 6 markets they listed. How many American film have Asian leads to appeal to those markets since they claim that's what they're concerned about? That's how you know folks are full of it. If they are so concerned about those markets then what do you see them doing differently than they've ever done to tickle those markets? Hire more white Brits. But then they're hiring more black Brits (still no asian Brits), so that kind of falls down too. You've gorged those markets with white male leads, they expect white male leads. It's what's been marketed for decades, and if it doesn't magically turn around in 5 films or less then throw your hands up because you tried.
