'Eternals': Release Date, Cast, Trailer, And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)

After several delays due to the coronavirus pandemic, Marvel Studios' Eternals is finally set to hit theaters this fall. Find out the Eternals release date and everything you need to know about the upcoming movie below.

Eternals Release Date and Where You Can Watch It

Eternals will open in theaters on November 5, 2021. As of this writing, Disney has not said whether Eternals will also be available simultaneously through the Premier Access tier on Disney+, but considering that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which debuts a couple of months prior to Eternals, is getting a 45 day exclusive theatrical window, it feels likely that the only way to watch Eternals will be in theaters – at least for the first few weeks.

Just What the Heck is an "Eternal," Anyway?

Eternals are ancient aliens who have secretly been living on Earth for thousands of years. As the teaser trailer indicates, they have helped "guide" various civilizations over the years, introducing them to certain pieces of technology and nudging them down the right path. But they "have never interfered...until now." That's because they'll have to battle the Deviants, a rival alien race that were also created by the Celestials, which are essentially alien gods who could wield immense amounts of power. (For reference, Kurt Russell's character in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was a Celestial.)

Eternals Synopsis

Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, an unexpected tragedy forces [the Eternals] out of the shadows to reunite against mankind's most ancient enemy, The Deviants.

Eternals Director, Crew, and More
