It appears that UK audiences will be able to see Chris Evans’ return as Captain America a week earlier than our U.S. friends, with the IMDb claiming that Captain America: The Winter Soldier will open here on March 28th, 2014, with the North American date still set for April 4th. Admittedly, the IMDb is not the most reliable of sources, but this does seem logical, given Marvel’s usual release pattern.
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.“
