    Being the Simpsons nerd that I am, I checked out wikipedia's entry on the Simpsons movie today and found that it is being released in France 2 days earlier than the rest of the world. I have been planning a trip to France anyway, so I figure why not combine the two! However, I have a question: Do the cinemas in France usually show films with the original dialogue(w/ French subtitles) or are they usually dubbed in French? Where is a good place to look for cinemas in Paris that would have the movie in English?

    French cinemas show movies in both subtitled and dubbed versions. Pick up a "Pariscope" magazine at any newsstand. In the movie listings, look for the letters v.o. (version originale) next to the movie listing for the subtitled version.

    That's interesting. I wonder why that is? I'd actually be interested in hearing how they do the dubbed version as well. I know the regular Simpsons episodes are dubbed into French with French-Canadian voices (at least the ones I watched in Quebec were). I wonder if they'll do the same for the movie?

    Are they maybe premiering it at the Cannes Film Festival?
