The PS5 can play any physical copy of a game no matter where it’s from, but it’s region locked when it comes to movies. Region locks are designed to stop you from playing media from other territories on your device. According to Sony, the PS5 does have region locks in place for Blu-rays.

Region A: North America, South America, U.S. Territories, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia
Region B: Europe, Africa, Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.
Region C: Asia (except for Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia)
