UK will screen blocked Moore film
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/3689121.stm

Michael Moore's new film Fahrenheit 911 will be screened in the UK despite its US release being blocked by Disney.

The film, which criticises President Bush's actions around 11 September, will be released by distributor Optimum Releasing in the UK this summer.

"We feel it is important that artists and commentators are always free to express their opinions," Optimum said.

5. but wait a minute ...
The film isn't slated for a US release until summer. It hasn't been blocked yet ... no more than Mel Gibson's Passion film was "blocked" or Dogma was "blocked."
