It's learned Captain America: Civil War will be screened for attendees at the Last Vegas CinemaCon almost a month before the movie is officially set to premiere.

CinemaCon released their schedule of events which includes the following announcement:

THE WALT DISNEY STUDIOS INVITES YOU TO ITS 2016 PRESENTATION INCLUDING A SPECIAL SCREENING OF MARVEL’S “CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR”

Dave Hollis, Executive Vice President, Theatrical Distribution, The Walt Disney Studios

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps —one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johannson, Don Cheadle, Sebastian Stan, Paul Rudd, Gwyneth Paltrow and Anthony Mackie. Directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo. Produced by Kevin Feige.

The Captain America: Civil War screening at CinemaCon will take place Wednesday, April 13th from 9-15am-12:30pm located at The Colosseum—Casino Level.

The announcement notes the details are tentative with some events and start times yet to be finalized.

Synopsis:

Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity.

The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
