Avengers: Infinity War To Open One Week Earlier In The US

by Erik Amaya

Thanos’s invasion of the Earth will begin earlier than previously announced.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War will open on April 27th, one week earlier than the May 4th US release date it has held for years. Moving to April 27th means it will enjoy a global launch on the same day.

The film, directed by Captain America: Civil War‘s Joe and Anthony Russo, resolves plot lines from that film and several other seeded throughout Marvel Studios films like Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron. Originally designed as a two-part feature, Infinity War moves Thanos and his collection of the Infinity Stones into one titanic event.

And in moving the film, Infinity War has a nice, clear lead versus films like Deadpool 2 and Disney stablemate Solo: A Star Wars Story during the first weeks of the summer season.

Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27th.
