According to the French film website Allocine, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will open in French theaters on Dec. 16, while a new video on the Star Wars Facebook page revealed a Dec. 17 release date for UK theaters.

Early releases in European and Asian countries are not unusual. When I was in the Philippines in 2012, I watched The Avengers about two weeks earlier than my American friends.
