Marvel Offers 17 Minutes of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ for Free on Imax

Guardians of the Galexy

To promote its “Guardians of the Galaxy” — and help educate moviegoers on who its band of otherworldly misfits are — Marvel Studios will screen 17 minutes of “Guardians of the Galaxy” in select Imax theaters on July 7.

The first look will take place in 150 Imax locations across North America at 7 p.m. The film, directed by James Gunn, opens Aug. 1.

“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,” Gunn said.

Imax is offering the free tickets to the screenings now through “Guardians'” Facebook page.

Those who attend will also receive a limited-edition “Guardians” poster from Imax (see below).

“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,” said Greg Foster, senior executive VP, Imax Corp. and CEO of Imax Entertainment. “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.”

“Guardians” stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benicio Del Toro, and features Vin Diesel as Groot and Bradley Cooper as Rocket raccoon.

    I was fortunate enough to attend the 17 minute preview last night with my 11-year old son. He’s at the age where, “he HAS to find out something for himself, because Dad, just ain’t that cool…” We both REALLY ENJOYED the clip. It featured the prison breakout scene. The camaraderie between the main characters works really well and in that 17 minutes you get a VERY GOOD idea about who the main characters are. Also, keeping in the back of your mind that these are all characters who will at some point be interacting with the film version of the Avengers, et al. we’ve already grown to love, made this a very thrilling intro. #MakeMineMarvel

    Looks like an awesome movie! Not much of a Marvel fan, but this is one that I have to see! Can’t wait!

  3. It’s kind of funny a little while back, maybe 2-3 years ago I bought my son a comic book of the Guardians of the Galaxy. I never thought to much of it. I saw the trailer, the other night and when I was going through his ten thousand spiderman comics I ran across it again. All I can say is that Marvel just can’t produce anything bad. I know Marvel is owned by Disney now, but they have done a good job with keeping the Marvel image, and it looks like this one is going to ba a great movie too. I am going to go see it when I get a chance.
