Sometimes Australia, the country that used to famously get Pixar movies three months later than the rest of the world, catches a break.
Eagle-eyed Aquaman fans spotted as much over on Reddit, noticing that the launch date for what might finally be a decent DC film had been bumped up by a fortnight. The film was originally scheduled to launch on Boxing Day locally, as can be seen from IMDB’s release dates below.
However, awhite14 noted that Event Cinemas are now reporting that Aquaman will launch on the same day as the upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse film. And that’s confirmed by a cursory glance at the Event Cinemas website:
Given that Aquaman also launches on December 14 in the US – which is December 15 our time – it means that keen fans should, at the very least, be able to enjoy the film before the internet does its thing and spoil the lot for all of us. Hooray! It’s nice to be part of the civilised world sometimes.
