Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 will zap into UK cinemas two days earlier than planned, on May 3.

This marvellous update (pun absolutely intended) arrives via Twitter's Tom Linay, a cinematic calendar guy who announced today (February 28): "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 now opens two days earlier in the UK & Ireland, on Wednesday, May 3."

Disney has officially confirmed the date switch to Digital Spy.

James Gunn's third Guardians blockbuster will mark the final time that Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, Nebula, Rocket Raccoon and Kraglin appear together in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and fans would be wise to prepare for devastation.

Discussing his farewell turn as alien bruiser Drax during an exclusive chat with DS this month, actor Dave Bautista revealed that his Knock at the Cabin commitments meant he couldn't soak up the emotions of the situation.

"I never really got the chance to say goodbye to everyone. There was never really that moment to kind of let it sit in, and that realisation of that closure. It hasn't really hit me yet," he told us.

"I've been talking about it, but the emotions haven't hit me. And I know they will when I see the film, and when I see everyone on the press tour, and we're saying goodbye.

"It's a very bittersweet thing. I feel very accomplished and proud of what we did, and what we left behind.

"But also I'm leaving behind people that I've been on this journey with for 10 years, and they're family to me now. And I love them dearly."

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 arrives in UK cinemas on May 3, and two days later in the US. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 1 and Vol 2 and the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special are streaming on Disney+.
