How did BoG and RF exhibit in Western cinemas?

I mean, did it air with its original Japanese audio track or with the country's made dub?

Just asking 'cause I want to watch the Super Broly movie on the big f'ckin screen. :P

It was made with the country's made dub at least in North America. I am not sure about other places, but they probably used their country's made dub.

A few countries showed only the original Japanese version:

I saw Battle of Gods at my local cinema (Northland, New Zealand). It was a very limited screening throughout the country, and i was NOT going to miss it.

I honestly can't remember if it was in Japanese or English though. It was August 2014.

I saw ROF in Japanese at the premier in Los Angeles. Got a high five from Nozawa too. 8)

My theater played them dubbed. IIRC subbed wasn't an option. It might be for Broly though, since they're doing both for My Hero Academia.
