The UK is a different country from the USA, with a different culture, language, licencing laws, censorship restrictions and different existing properties.
Sometimes films in the US conflict with one of those and get a very different release in the UK.

Presumably because it was thought that "Le Mans 66" would mean less to American punters than European ones. Hence spelling it out in a way that even Americans can understand (<- Irony alert. I don't think Americans are stoopid. It seems to be 20th C Fox who think that).

PS No spoilers please, I want to see the film to find out how it ends!

Very profound, Gordon! But I get what you’re saying. Or it could be as Anyopnroad suggests.

Bale terrific, Damon excellent . Shame about the rest ,which was the sort of nonsense we have come to expect from films about racing . No racing film cliche remained unused .

Loved it, really good and the 2 and a half hours flew past. Loved the opening scenes set around the 1959 aston win, Was actually wearing my Aston 60th anniversary polo shirt so felt appropriate. Cinema was not full by any sense so let us hope word of mouth sells more tickets. Biggest mistake of the film was Ken walking out of his hotel near the cathedral and then meeting Carroll in the pits, that is quite a stroll probably 4 miles (no pun intended).

Yes, I thought the same. Bit of artistic licence there since the walk would have taken up most of the film!

I thought that was funny, but as most have already said, if you want to pick holes, it’s fairly easy!

It’s entertainment, and if viewed as such, in my opinion a very good watch....

Totally agree for le mans addicts there are always things to pick on but this is a good film and well worth watching.

Going to watch "Ford vs Ferrari" tonight. Wonder why it's called like this in Belgium, and "Le Mans '66" in the Netherlands?

As said, I believe it has been renamed "Ford Vs. Ferrari" in the territories where it is less likely that people know about Le Mans...

...with that in mind I am surprised to see it called "Ford Vs. Ferrari" anywhere in Europe!

A little detail I noticed was that Maison Blanche was referred to as "White House" in the film (perhaps changed for the international audience?), though Tertre Rouge remained in French.

It's got a few other titles in different territories:
'Against the impossible',
'Full acceleration',
'Kings of Asphalt',
'The big challenge',
'Outsiders',

I guess it depends on who is responsible for distribution in that territory?

Actually as a kid any reports I read always referred to "the White House". It wasn't until the 80's that it became internationally known as "Maison Blanche" AFAIK.
