"Ghost in the Shell" already out this Friday?

It's Monday and I have not yet received a press invite for "Ghost in the Shell," which is coming out this Friday. Are they scared about the toxic word of mouth? It has screened in parts of the U.S, but the roll out for this film has been abysmal. Barely any buzz has been built through word of mouth. Of course I don' expect it to be "Citizen Kane," but you have to wonder what is going on. The first few reviews don't look too bad either, so what's the deal here? Is it the whitewashing controversy? Which is total nonsense by the way. There's been no news whatsoever of a screening that I practically forgot that it was coming out this Friday. Also, the fact they have allowed reviews to only come out 3 days before its release is suspicious.
