See an exclusive sneak peek! IMAX and Disney/Marvel have announced that showings of Jurassic World in IMAX 3D will have special previews of Marvel's Ant-Man in front, with 6-minutes of footage. This is a big marketing push since the movie comes out in just about a month anyway, in July, and this is a chance to get hyped with an extra bit of 3D footage. Paul Rudd plays Scott Lang, who becomes Ant-Man with Hank Pym, played by Michael Douglas, as his mentor. The press release doesn't say if it's one long scene, it just says "more than six minutes of footage will screen exclusively in IMAX theatres domestically and in select international markets beginning June 12th." So go see Jurassic World, if you weren't planning to already.
Here's a short teaser for the Ant-Man IMAX 3D event, in theaters with Jurassic World this Friday:
Ant-Man is directed by Peyton Reed (Yes Man) with a script by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish, rewritten by Adam McKay and Gabriel Ferrari & Andrew Barrer. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world. Marvel/Disney releases Ant-Man starting July 17th this summer.
