Sorry America, Now THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Gets An Even Earlier UK Release Date

If you live in the UK, take solace in the fact that you'll now at least be able to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 soon enough to not have the entire movie spoiled for you in TV spots, extended trailers and clips. The rest of you? Tough luck! Hit the jump to find out the new release date...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to be released in North America on May 2nd, but most of the world will have already seen it by that point. However, Sony Pictures UK have today confirmed that the UK wil be the first. Instead of the originally slated release of April 18th, it will now hit on April 16th. That's only a two day difference, but now well over two weeks sooner than in Spidey's home country. While it may seem strange that a much smaller country will get The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that early, it's worth noting that there are an awful lot of movies released in North America which don't make their debuts until months or years later in some cases. They aren't always as high profile as something like this, but there have been plenty of big movies which are delayed a lot longer than 15 days. Of course, a big part of the reason why studios like Marvel and Sony might decide to release their movies here sooner could be because as soon as a bunch of film "critics" who run blogs no one has ever heard of gets their hands on them, their RT scores plummet...

I have feeling this whole movie is going to be spoiled before it gets to the US.

It's kinda like when they let
the handicap people on the rides
first at an amusement park.
ALegendaryPanda - 4/7/2014, 10:49 AM
[frick] THIS! I'M MOVING TO THE UK!
DrunkenNukem - 4/7/2014, 10:51 AM
Makes sense....because Spiderman, Captain AMERICA, and Marvel Superheroes are from the UK...right...
Codex - 4/7/2014, 10:51 AM

The New World Orderhas a major base of operations in the UK. Downgrading America in every way that they can is all part of their plan.
DrunkenNukem - 4/7/2014, 10:54 AM
Spidey better drink his tea
ALmazing - 4/7/2014, 10:55 AM
@MrBlackJack-Wait, am I target of your little gang of rascals because I offended your girlfriend MrPEST-o? Sweet! you guys are hilarious.
MrMartinMarvel - 4/7/2014, 10:55 AM
You guys may be getting TASM 2 before us, but we've got one thing you'll never have…FREEDOM!
DrunkenNukem - 4/7/2014, 10:55 AM

Pasto - 4/7/2014, 10:56 AM
How the hell did I get dragged into this? I didn't say anything directed to you ALmight. Stop dragging me into your shit.
cipher - 4/7/2014, 10:56 AM
I'm from the UK, but I live in the US (moved here a few years ago)..

If it wasn't for the fact that my accent gives me some sort of hypnotic power over the women, I'd cry in my scotch.
JoJo1982 - 4/7/2014, 10:56 AM
After the whole Cap 2 thing

I think it's best for us Americans to stay away from this site from April 16th - May 2nd
DrunkenNukem - 4/7/2014, 10:57 AM
@MrBlackJack...i know....but then they say in Comic-con how wonderful the fans are...bla bla bla pricks
theowl - 4/7/2014, 10:57 AM
April 25th in Norway ... I can live with that
ALmazing - 4/7/2014, 10:58 AM
@MrBlackJack-Oh is just you then? Well that's disappointing.
