Aardman has a film out in the UK right now called The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!. It's based on a book called The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! and features the likes of Hugh Grant, David Tennant, Jeremy Piven, Salma Hayek, Martin Freeman and Russell Tovey. Here's the trailer for it:

Except in the rest of the world, that's not what it's called. it's called Pirates! Band of Misfits and here's a trailer for it that takes the piss out of The Hunger Games.

What does the renaming tell you about the UK, the US or the rest of the world? Answers on a postcard…
