Eternals has a new release date in India: Friday, November 5. Additionally, it has been announced that Eternals will be available in six languages: English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam. Disney India confirmed Monday that the next Marvel movie — directed by Oscar winner Chloé Zhao, and starring an ensemble cast led by Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, and Angelina Jolie — will release later than it had originally planned, for October. The delay is likely due to the fact that Thursday, November 4 is Diwali this year, one of the biggest festivals in India. Disney is possibly banking on the long five-day weekend that it could result in, which could help the Marvel movie's box office potential.
Directed by Academy Award winner Chloé Zhao, the superhero spectacle welcomes an exciting new team of Super Heroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The epic story, spanning thousands of years, features a group of immortal heroes forced out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s oldest enemy, The Deviants.
Originally, audiences in India would've been among the first ones to watch Eternals. Back in May, when Marvel Studios unveiled a return-to-cinemas marketing push in “Marvel Studios Celebrates the Movies”, the official Marvel YouTube channel for India carried an “October 2021” release for Eternals. That would've meant a week earlier than the US, and in line with a select few Asian markets, including Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Taiwan. But the India release date was quietly updated in the final Eternals trailer — and it's now been confirmed.
