Avengers: Infinity War release date, cast, trailers, and news
Ticket presales for Avengers: Infinity War have already surpassed Black Panther’s record
In just six hours
Marvel released its final trailer for the superhero team-up movie yesterday in conjunction with the start of ticket sales, which comes out on April 27th. Variety says that Fandango released results from a user survey that showed a high level of excitement for the film, but also that Black Panther “made them more excited to see Avengers: Infinity War.”
Avengers: Infinity War is out in the UK from 26 April 2018 and the US from 27 April 2018, after a few release date changes.
Tickets are on sale now, so you’ll want to book now to make sure you can see the film opening weekend – or even make it to a midnight screening. US fans should head to Fandango to find tickets at their local cinema, while if you’re in the UK just go straight to Cineworld, Vue, Odeon, or your cinema of choice.
North America was originally meant to get the movie a week later, a pretty common release tactic for Marvel films, using the release across the UK and Europe to hype everyone up, but in March the studio decided to move the release up by a week to be simultaneous with the UK. Not to be outdone, the UK team promptly shifted the UK release forward by a single day, to 26 April, so Brits get a whole extra 24 hours.
It’s the second Marvel movie this year, coming hot on the heels of Black Panther – one of the many heroes who’ll be appearing in Infinity War. Read our Black Panther review to find out what we thought of it.
This is all ahead of the release of the currently untitled Part 2 – apparently the title along is a spoiler for Infinity War – which is expected in May 2019. Before then we’ve also got both Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel to look forward to.
We’re just a few weeks away from the release of Avengers: Infinity War — its release date was recently bumped up a week to April 27th — and now, Marvel has released new trailer to stir up some more excitement for the upcoming superhero showdown.
Infinity War promises to be one of the biggest films Marvel has ever made, combining almost every single superhero from across the 18-film franchise that began 10 years ago with the release of Iron Man in 2008. As the star-studded trailer shows, Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, Chris Evans’ Captain America, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man, the rest of the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and pretty much every other ancillary character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe are back.
All these highly paid actors will be joining forces against the villainous Thanos (Josh Brolin), the big bad that Marvel has been teasing in post-credit stingers since the first Avengers film was released six years ago. Thanos is trying to gather the six Infinity Stones, the MacGuffin items of power from across the various Marvel films. And judging by the trailer, it’ll be an uphill battle to stop him.
