Great Regulars: Few have seen the whole film.

[Sam] Bacile claimed the entire Innocence was screened "earlier this year" in a mostly empty theater in Hollywood. A 14-minute trailer was posted on YouTube in July. Perhaps mysteriously, the English-language version was joined by one dubbed in Egyptian Arabic; Bacile says he didn't do it. Even on YouTube, relatively few watched the trailers: about 55,000 for the English version, an additional 15,000 for the dubbed version.

But it's not how many people see; it's who.
