The Official The Brothers Grimm Website has posted a list from some upcoming international release. Still no news of Brazil (which is where I live) but you guys from around the world have a chance to see it soon! Here is the list:

Also from the Official Site, which I had to quote cause it’s so funny:
If there are film-goers in a territory where the film is not currently listed to open, fear not, as plans are fast coming together. All interested parties in these locales are instructed to sit on a soft surface low to the ground and take deep breaths. When calm returns, check back here at the official website to see if we have updated the release schedule. If we have not, and panic begins to take hold again, repeat the above remedy, but this time, with eyes closed, also whistle your particular countries national anthem. Do not stop whistling until we have updated the website. This will of course require the help of a good and sighted friend.
From the Official Site:

Eric has sent an e-mail saying Access Hollywood has an exclusive with Matt and Heath Ledger in the red carpet premiere for The Brothers Grimm:
Stars Matt Damon and Heath Ledger patiently and cheerfully worked their ways down the entire arrivals line Monday night inside the Directors Guild of America. All the while, they discussed “Grimm,” opening stateside Aug. 26, which casts the two as fictionalized versions of the real-life kings of the fairy tale.
The Brothers Grimm
The Grimm brothers are, of course, the two German fellas who collected all the folktales and turned them into fairy tales that we all loved to read when we were children.
In the movie, they are played by Matt Damon and Heath Ledger under the direction of Terry Gilliam.
The trailer opens like a famous fairy tale – Red Riding Hood – only here it is much, much scarier and darker.
We see the brothers travelling from town to town getting rid of ghosts and ghouls, and getting paid handsomely for their efforts.
But the brothers’ greatest adventure begins when they visit one very troubled town.
All the scenes here are meant to introduce us to the two brothers and, from the scenes, it is not difficult to like them. Yes, even Damon.
Despite the dark background, what Damon and Ledger do and say are quite hilarious.
The elements of fairy tales are all here – magical trees, castles with high towers, poor folk searching for a hero (or two, in this case), a beautiful but spunky heroine (Lena Heady), a frog who needs a kiss and, of course, an evil queen (Monica Belluci).
