So Much For New Line's Commitment

The web page of Intercom has an official announcement regarding the release dates of The Fellowship Of The Ring and, contrary to New Line's supposed "commitment" to making the film available to the whole world at the same time, release dates for Central and Eastern Europe will be separate for each country and all later than December 19. We Hungarians get to wait until January 10th and so does the Czech Republic, the rest of the stated release dates are as follows:

Italy -- January 17
Slovakia -- January 24
Poland -- February 15
Bulgaria -- mid-April (!)
