We say that a calendar year is 365 days, and it is, more or less. But it takes just a little bit longer for the Earth to make its lap around the sun, about 6 hours, making a full year 365.24219 days. So we add a day every four years, a process known as intercalation.

Columbia Pictures decided at the last minute to bypass a general release (even after screenings had been held in many cities — including Greensboro) and unveil the film on a limited basis.
