Poland is somewhat behind the curve in terms of box office releases. They're catching up now, with major blockbusters being released on the same date in Poland as they are in the US, but for many films they still lag behind. One such effect is that on the flight over to Poland, I can watch a film before it is even shown in theaters in Poland. Happy-Go-Lucky was one such film, and I got the pleasure of seeing all the posters up around Warsaw advertising its release.
It used to be really bad a few years ago. I remember visiting the theater and seeing posters for movies that were "coming soon", yet had already been released on DVD in the States months before. These days, most films are released simultaneously around the globe (Poland included.)
