After announcing a boycott with three other major exhibitors accounting for nearly 80 percent of Dutch screens, Pathe has dropped out of the country's boycott of ALICE IN WONDERLAND, according to VARIETY.

The boycott, which was announced Feb. 15 in response to Disney's plans to release the film early on DVD, was apparently bridged by at least the two parties -- Disney and Pathe. Per the agreement, Pathe will also get to release the film on March 5, five days earlier than the original release date.

A similar boycott in neighboring Belgium still stands.
