If you’ve been dying to see Marvel’s upcoming ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ and don’t want to wait until August 1st you’re in luck! Well, as long as you don’t mind only checking out the first 17 minutes of the film that is. Marvel has just announced that they’ll be showing off the introduction of James Gunn’s upcoming film in IMAX 3D format for free on July 7th. I’d order quick though as while it is showing on 150 screens I’m sure it’ll sell out quick!

You can get tickets right here if you hurry.

Talking about the exclusive footages James Gunn said that “We’ve re-mastered some of our epic sequences into the IMAX 3D format, taking the scope and scale to new heights while creating a truly immersive, cinematic experience that will take you further into the Marvel Universe than ever before.”

While Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp Greg Foster added in that “IMAX and Marvel fans are some of the most die-hard in the world and we’re excited to offer them this exclusive extended first-look at one of the summer’s hottest upcoming movies in IMAX 3D. James Gunn’s visionary film in IMAX 3D is going to give our audiences an immersive experience they won’t find anywhere else, and we’re thrilled to get the ball rolling and reward fans early at this unique event.”

Bonus points for getting a special edition poster at the event which you can check out below!

I can’t wait for the film to be released! I’m not sure if I want to check this out as if I only get to see 17 minutes I might go a little crazy waiting for its August release. What about you though? Are you plan on checking it out early true believers?


From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team — the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ starring Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, and Michael Rooker blasts off on August 1st, 2014.
