Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.


The State of America

America is on the outside looking in this time. When I was living in Japan, I can’t remember how many times I had to wait months for a new release American flick to come to Japan.

It seemed as if my friends and family in the US were watching sequels before I got to see part one.

Not anymore. Sony Pictures, owner of Spider-Man 3 released the movie on May 1st in Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, China, Germany, France and other markets 3 days before it will be released in America or the UK.

The problem for me is…now I am in the states eating my heart out because my Japanese friends are now getting a first look.

Can’t win for trying.

Not only did Toby Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and company break records in Tokyo, they also broke records for opening days in Seoul.

Spider-Man 3 is already doing better than Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2. The question is whether or not Spidey can climb all the way to the top of the movie rankings and topple Titanic…which has grossed more than $600 million.

It seems that the Spider-Man trilogy is sure to reach the $1 billion in ticket sale milestone since Spider-Man took in $403 million and Spider-Man 2 took in $373 million.

Will you be going to see Spider-Man 3?

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
