‘Batman vs. Superman’ Sneak Peek Trailer Will Screen in IMAX Theaters
Yesterday we reported on Zack Snyder’s wacky little plan to deliver the first Batman v Superman trailer a bit early. That trailer is attached to Avengers: Age of Ultron, and will hit theaters on May 1. For fans who can’t wait that long, Snyder has concocted a plan to allow you to see the trailer early — instead of simply releasing it online next week, Warner Bros. will screen the trailer in a theater. But it won’t be just any theater. They’re taking it to IMAX.
Tomorrow morning at 9 a.m., just one hour before Star Wars Celebration kicks off (which cannot be a coincidence at all), Snyder will tweet the first five seconds of the Batman v Superman trailer and invite fans to sign up in order to attend special screenings of the trailer (just the trailer — you will not actually be watching a film afterward).
Per Variety, fans who sign up will be able to see the trailer on Monday, April 18 in various IMAX theaters. The Celebration Cinema Theater in Michigan has labeled it the “Batman vs Superman IMAX Trailer Event” on their website, listing a run time of 15 minutes — so it seems like fans will get a little bonus along with the trailer. That could be some behind the scenes stuff. It could be a message from Zack Snyder and the cast. It could be 10 minutes of of footage of Zack Snyder carrying an IMAX camera around.
