You know the first time I saw the Guardians of the Galaxy footage with the Blue Swede ooga-chuckkas it was so fresh and amazing. And now I’ve seen umpty zillion trailers and posters and this and that and all and I’m bored already. =( But that’s how ya gotta sell an unknown quantity in this day and age.
And yet I still signed up to see 17 minutes of IMAX footage for free on July 7th, and you may still be able to, too if you run over here to the GotG facebook page. Tickets are free and available on a first come first served basis. Lucky attendees get a poster, too!
The sneak peek will be held in 150 IMAX theaters across the US and Canada on July 7th at 7 pm. According to director James Gunn, “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.”
And just in case you still can’t get enough pre August 1 opening footage here is a NEW trailer with NEW music (The Runaways Cherry Bomb) and MORE to make this look like a big summer movie epic.
