Avengers: Age Of Ultron gets a new UK release date

Avengers: Age Of Ultron has moved forward in the UK release schedules, meaning that British audiences will get to see the film a whole week before their US counterparts.

The film will now open in the UK on 24 April 2015, seven days before it arrives in US screens on 1 May.

Marvel announced the news yesterday through its UK Twitter account, using the hashtag #ONEYEAR, a welcome reminder that there's not long to go now!

The news will come as a major boon to UK-based fans, who can look forward to avoiding the usual barrage of spoilers that tend make their way online whenever there is a delay in release between the US and UK markets.

The film began shooting earlier this year in South Africa, and will now open in the UK in exactly 364 days. Start counting them down...
