Is the film animated?
Is the film any good?
Please delay your release for six months, for no apparent reason.
Actually, Optimum were talking about a release about the same time as America. I'm thinking that making Ponyo slip is a strategic attempt to both avoid the release of Up next month and Princess and the Frog at Christmas, and to cash in on the 2D Animation renaissance that the later film is quite hopefully going to inspire.
As for Ninokuni. Yeah, the European release is guaranteed. We're better Ghibli fans too, if you consider that by Feburary next year, the US will be three films down on us (Only Yesterday, Tales from Earthsea, Ocean Waves). Nurnurnurnur.
