Thor movie Marvel Reveals International Thor Release Dates

Thinking about lining up on May 6th to be one of the first fans in the world to see Thor and Loki battle it out on the big-screen? You might be surprised, and possibly disappointed, to know that over 40 countries will get to see the film before moviegoers in the United States.

According to the official International release schedule for the film Thor will open internationally on April 27th in Belgium, Egypt, and France, with many other countries following shortly after.

Marvel is known for planning ahead. It’s not the first time that Marvel has opened one of their tent-pole pictures to the international crowd before film-goers in the U.S. – as Iron Man 2 followed a similar release schedule. Director Jon Favreau’s heavy-metal follow-up opened on May 7th in the U.S. – with international audiences getting a look at the film starting on April 28th.

"You tell those Americans they can wait."

While some Thor fans might be disappointed that they’ll have to fly to another country to be among the first moviegoers to see Kenneth Branagh’s Marvel superhero installment, the international Thor release will pale in comparison to the irony of the impending Captain America: The First Avenger release schedule.

Personally, I don’t see any problem with Hollywood productions opening in other countries before they hit theaters in the U.S. but I can imagine some die-hard Cap fans won’t be able to resist getting worked up if the titular American hero screens in foreign theaters first.

Thor, as we all know, is actually Scandinavian after-all.

Thor opens on May 6th in U.S. theaters and a few days earlier almost everywhere else.

  1. Trailer? Trailer? A release date isn’t good enough :(

    • You´ll have to scroll down to the video, but take a look at this:

      http://www.moviepilot.de/news/thor-und-sein-kampf-gegen-odin-107484

      • @ scapegoat1

        WOW! Thanks man. That was really cool. I’m really pumped for this now. :-)

        • You´re welcome. I´m looking forward to this too. I was never really a fan of Thor, but I think they hit the right mood for the movie. Also, I´m looking forward to see Agent Coulson kick some ass.

      • Thank you for the link to the trailer of Thor i have been dying to see what it will look like, God bless you scapegoat1. I love hero films and this one i have had a real interest in to see, and I love what kenneth Brannagh does with films and I have to say this ad is cool thanks again

    • they did show a trailer a little while back… but marvel took it down cause they ddint have permission… i saw it here, i think, and it was really good i thought…

  2. And if i here of anyone in the US flying to another country to see this before it’s released here, I will track them down and clobber them with a Cast Iron Frying pan LOL. :)

    • LOL! That sounded exactly like something Deadpool would say.

      • that was good anthony… deadpool would say something like that too…

    • LOL :-)

      A Cast Iron Flying Frying pan a bit like Mjöllnir.

      • LOL.

      • loll

  3. HAHAHA! lol :-D

  4. Anthony,
    if you change that to a Tupperware Frying pan I just might hop on over to Mexico and check it out!
    What do you say.

    • NO! I don’t own any Tupperware, I’m a cast iron type of guy :)

  5. So the film will be available online by 2am EST on April 27. LOL.

    I really don’t care if a film is released internationally first, I usually stay away from the first weekend anyway. I just want this to be a great film.

  6. So I’ll see a bootleg online on april 28th. Sweet

    • Jess where do you see bootleg movies?

  7. Hey guys, bootleg Fox & Sony all you want but lets support Marvel Studios with some movie tickets. Seriously.

    • Don’t worry, most of them will still see it in theatres if they are comic book fans.

  8. This seems like a pretty big mistake. Mostly because of Piracy it’s alot more acceptable in other countries and most pirated videos posted online usually come from outside of the US which is a damn good reason to release in the US first to try and get as much money as possible before the pirated videos start poping up like crazy. By the time it releases in America we will already have pirated version online.

    • @Daniel F, Your right. 95% of these downloads come from outside the U.S.

  9. No Puerto Rico dates…figures, well they always come here on the Thursday after it airs on the US.

  10. YAY!!! April 28 in Malaysia

  11. ya i live in the uk as i am glad 2 know the date 4 the uk i just wished for movies/games alike they would just come out on the same day internationally

  12. I can’t wait to see the Thor movie.

    I see it’s out in Australia before the US.

    As an Aussie science fiction writer I’ve been a Marvel Thor fan since the original Journey into Mystery of August 1962.

  13. I have to say that now after seeing initial footage from all of the big three cmoic book releases next year, Thor probably looks the most impressive at the moment
