Avengers: Infinity War shook up the 2018 release schedule when Disney and Marvel bumped up its US debut from May 4 to April 27. To avoid competing with the superhero crossover event, Rampage with Dwayne Johnson will now open on April 13, 2018 as apposed to April 20. This will give the video game adaptation an additional week to rule the box office before getting inevitably dethroned by the Avengers.
As of now, Amy Schumer’s I Feel Pretty and Super Troopers 2 are still set to come out on April 20. Although Rampage is distancing itself from Infinity War by one week, it’s also bringing itself one week closer to Ready Player One, which comes out on March 29. Steven Spielberg’s latest film probably won’t be shifting its release date, as that would mean having to compete with the likes of Pacific Rim Uprising, Tomb Raider, A Wrinkle in Time, and other big March releases.
There’s been much speculation as to why Avengers: Infinity War is getting an early release. Perhaps it’s because the film was going to come out in late April internationally and the studio wanted to avoid any spoilers reaching North America in advance. It’s also worth noting that Solo: A Star Wars Story, another film under the Disney label, hits theaters on May 25. So this offers a little more wiggle room between the two inevitable blockbusters. Plus, Fox’s Deadpool 2 comes out on May 18. With Disney’s acquisition of Fox, it’d be in everyone’s best interest to offer some more time between Marvel movies.
Whatever the reason for all these release changes, one thing is for certain: our schedules are going to be booked solid over the next couple months.
