Default US/ Region 1 release dates compared to other region releases?!

Why is it that movies like Zoolander are getting region 2 releases and there are no announcements for a region 1 release?

Or shows like Black Lagoon are getting Region 2 releases and there are no announcements for region 1 releases?

Black Lagoon

Zoolander

(I don't know if it is against the rules or not to post from other sites, if it is let me know and I'll alter this. Thank You!)

As per the Blu Ray blunders thread - the studios hate America. They release material elsewhere sooner, they charge us sometimes more than DOUBLE for box sets, the foreign release usually gets better packaging and full color artwork on the disc itself.

The excuse that is often used is because overseas it is a different studio with the rights, which still does not explain the pricing or the packaging complaints I have.
