Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania ended up taking a real beating from critics and, after a massive drop during its second weekend at the domestic box office, all eyes are on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 to make things right for Marvel Studios.
Filmmaker James Gunn's final MCU move before he focuses solely on running DC Studios for Warner Bros., expectations among fans are high, especially with the trailers pointing to it being an emotional send-off for this iteration of the team. Not everyone is expected to make it out alive, unfortunately, and that should make avoiding spoilers essential for many fans.
However, that just got a little harder with the news Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to be released two days earlier in the UK and Ireland on Wednesday, May 3, instead of Friday, May 5.
Why the change? Well, we'd bet on it having something to do with the fact King Charles' coronation takes place on Saturday, May 6. The event is likely to draw millions of viewers who, rather than heading to their location cinema, will be watching it unfold on television from the comfort of home.
If you're in the UK, will you now be checking out Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 a little earlier?
In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, our beloved band of misfits are looking a bit different these days. Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him to defend the universe along with protecting one of their own. A mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them.
Gunn writes and directs Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, featuring Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Sean Gunn, Chukwudi Iwuji, Will Poulter, and Maria Bakalova.
Kevin Feige is the producer and Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nikolas Korda, Simon Hatt, and Sara Smith serve as executive producers.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 arrives in theaters on May 5, 2023.
