As for how the movie will be recepted I think it will play in most big named cinema's and if it's marketed well then it should do okay here. Some Harry Potter fans might see it for Robert, romance fans will like it, and it might appeal to vampire fans aswell, so people will see it other than us Twilight lovers. Me and my friend are so excited for it, we're booking tickets as soon as we can

Especially since Twilight is the first film of the series, I think the producers want to break up the premiere dates so as to see how much revenue it brings in from the US before releasing it in other countries where the fandom isn't as large. The same staggered release date strategy occurs with many other films. It may also be that another big film is to be a UK-only release [or vice versa for the US] on the intended release date and they don't want to compete, so they push it forward or backward depending on what's best for the box office.

I know it has a bigger following in the US, but it has fans all over the world and whilst it is american we all love it regardless. Fans should be taken into account (however like I will boycott it, I'm too curious to see how Robert is as Edward).
My problem with the release dates was mainly with releasing Breaking Dawn 3-4 days after the American release, rather than Twilight the film, as they do that with alot of films. But I don't see why it should happen with the books. The internet becomes a mass of spoilers and I came across Nessie accidently before I got the book. But meh, I can't do nothing about it. They have their reasons I suppose.
