Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange promises to take viewers to the farthest reaches of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And the only way to get the most out of the movie, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch as an arrogant neurosurgeon who turns his attention to more alternative forms of healing, is to see it in awe-inspiring IMAX 3D. But thanks to a just-announced sneak peek, you won’t have to wait until the movie opens on November 4 to get a taste of Marvel Studios’ otherworldly adventure.
Marvel Studios’ Expand Your Mind: An IMAX 3D Exclusive First Look, will feature approximately 15 minutes of exclusive footage from the highly anticipated film and will be showcased in over 115 theater locations across North America on October 10, 2016, at 7 pm. Tickets to the event are free and will be distributed for U.S. and Canadian screenings on a first-come, first-serve basis starting today. For more information and to download your tickets, go here.
Commenting on the exclusive footage, director Scott Derrickson said, “As a movie fan, I am thrilled to take audiences along on the visual journey of Doctor Strange and give them an early peek at what we’ve been working on. The completed film will feature more than an hour of specially formatted IMAX sequences that will provide audiences with a totally immersive—and mind-blowing—film-going experience and I’m excited to share a taste of that with our fans on 10/10.”
And to get even more excited (about the sneak peek and the film itself), watch this new look at the film below, which includes a moment when fellow magical warrior Wong (Benedict Wong) sums up Doctor Strange’s role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe perfectly: “The Avengers protect the world from physical dangers. We safeguard it from more mystical threats.” After seeing footage from the film at San Diego Comic Con and elsewhere, it’s safe to say that this is going to look incredible in IMAX 3D.
Doctor Strange is out in IMAX 3D on November 4.
