Simpsons movie / Stupid americans

Just found the release-dates for the new Simpsons movie on IMDB..

USA (Springfield, Vermont), 21 July 2007
France, 25 July 2007
Denmark, 3 August 2007 (Annoyed grunt!)
Hong Kong, 9 August 2007
Netherlands, 16 August 2007
Italy, 14 September 2007
Japan, 1 March 2008

Now, I understand why the first premiere in Vermont is a couple of days before the rest of the world, seeing that they were picked the true Springfield of the series.

But why on earth you choose to spread openings in the rest of the world out over a period of almost 8 months, I cannot understand. Something like the Simpsons have a huge fanbase all over the world, and making people outside of the states wait for the premiere, is just bad style.

Another aspect, that should speak to the businesspeople behind the Simpsons, is that doing it like this, you’re not only opening up for piracy, you are practically begging for it..
