TABA Release Date likely to move 1 week earlier? Can't Post

The announced US release date for TABA so far is December 17th. So far, not many dates for other countries were published. Except for Russia, the release date of which was scheduled for Dec. 18th.

Today, Warner Bros. Germany published the release date for Germany - and it is a whole week earlier than the US release date: December 10th.

The way I see it, we are likely to receive a change in release dates, and the US date might get moved one week earlier. The reasons for this are:
- In the past, both the European and the US releases were always in the same week, the difference being just a day or two. I do not expect the US audience would be likely to wait 1 week longer.
- Also, the Russian Middle-Earth releases always were later than the US/European release dates in the past. From some months with FOTR to 1 week with The Hobbit. The reason being localization work as well as proximity to Russian winter holidays (Dec 31- Jan 8th).

So I suppose the new German date and the Russian release date are accurate, and the US date is likely to shift to a date around Dec. 10 quite soon. Also, I expect other European release dates (UK, France etc.) to be in the same week as well.
