On Facebook, Guardians of the Galaxy editor Fred Raskin recently argued for why you should go out of your way to see the film in IMAX 3D:

Yesterday I watched the IMAX 3D version of Guardians of the Galaxy, and I can say without question that this is the ideal format in which the movie should be experienced. This is not some hastily-done 3D pass in which they’ve simply added a little depth to the 2D version of the movie. Many of the shots and sequences in the film were designed for 3D (read: this will not be subtle), and I was absolutely floored by how well our 3D team pulled them off. Additionally, in IMAX, there are a number of sequences in which we’ve removed the black bars on the top and bottom of the screen so that the image fills the frame, creating a fully-immersive 3D experience.

Having seen the 17 minute preview in IMAX 3D, I have to agree. I’m seeing the full film in faux-IMAX 3D. I’ll let you know if it comes a close or distant second.

The fine folks at Disney movie marketing have decided to release another featurette for Maleficent giving us just a slightly wider slice of the film than the previous featurettes. This one focuses on the battle between light and dark that goes on in the kingdom, in the characters, and in the movie:

Also released was a new clip from the film featuring that most iconic of Sleeping Beauty moments when Princess Aurora pricks her finger on the spinning wheel and falls into a sleep-like death.

Of course, if you saw the 9 minute preview at Disney’s Hollywood Studios or DCA, then you’ve already seen that scene. If not, what are you waiting for? the preview screenings end June 15th.
