That’s strange there is such a difference. There’s a full month between places like Belgium getting the movie compared to Japan of all places.

The days of staggered movie releases have been largely gone since the move to digital. In the past the US would have typically gotten movies before Europe because the physical reels were reused. That isn’t the case anymore because the movie is sent as a digital file.

I think this movie is actually done at this point. Remember the original release date was December (likely moved due to Avatar). The April 7 release date in the US lines up with Easter break when most kids will be out of school. The earlier release dates for other countries makes sense to build hype and reviews.
