There are two types of beings in the universe: those who dance, and those who do not. Which one do you think you are?
When you think about Guardians of the Galaxy there is only one word that comes out in your mind...AWESOME!! And we have no doubt Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will rock the universe again.

Don't you trust us? Well maybe you can hear why it's going to be awesome from someome who knows better than us...
“On May 5th the greatest movie in the history of movies is coming. There has never been and will never again be a movie like this. Seriously. Ever heard of Citizen Kane? We're much better. Seriously. Our movie just tested at over one million points. Rotten tomatoes already has it at 234% fresh. #GotGVol2 will win every movie award AND about 39 Olympic gold medals in swimming, gymnastics, the skiiing event with the gun, x games, snowmobiling and everything. It will win the World Cup and about 7 super bowl rings, sorry TOM Brady. This movie will fry your brains and lift your spirits. James Gunn will be elected president of the world. They will add the faces of the guardians to Mount Rushmore for sure. We're gonna get a planet. May 5th will become a national holiday. Everyone will get pregnant. Candy will fall from the sky. Global warming will stop. Dinosaurs will come back to life. Which unlike some movies might tell you, is actually a really good thing. Because they won't flip out and kill people instead they'll be yourawesome pets. So basically get your tickets as soon as you can. Don't be the only person on the planet who doesn't see this movie.”

If you want to be part of the galaxy, you have to feel it....
We got extremely excited when director James Gunn, after the very successful IMAX release of Guardians of the Galaxy, has once again specially formatted Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 exclusively for IMAX screens. Take it from himself:
"Those who have followed me awhile know that IMAX is the optimal way to view a Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I personally oversee the 3D, crafting every shot, and only in IMAX do we shift aspect ratios during big scenes so that you get nearly 30% more screen size than anywhere else."
If you want to know more, just keep reading...
What happens on screen when a film is specially formatted for IMAX?
Exclusively in IMAX® cinemas, select scenes from the film will be specially formatted and presented in an expanded 1.9:1 aspect ratio. This means that only in IMAX will the movie fill more of the screen, and fans will see 26% more of the image in IMAX than in standard screens.
Aspect ratio is the technical term for the proportional relationship between an image’s width and its height.
IMAX provides filmmakers with the ability to use an expanded aspect ratio for the IMAX presentation of their film so they can utilize much more of the originally captured image – either during production through filming with the extremely high-resolution IMAX® camera or by protecting more of the image during their post-production process.
The result provides you with a full panoramic view that fills your peripheral vision more than any other cinematic experience. That’s why, when you watch an IMAX movie, it feels like it’s all around you.
Why should moviegoers see this film in IMAX?
In addition to the stunning visuals and immersive sound you’ll get from experiencing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in IMAX, select scenes from the film will be specially formatted exclusively for IMAX® cinemas and presented in an expanded 1.9:1 aspect ratio.
This means that only in IMAX will the movie fill more of the screen, and fans will see 26% more of the image in IMAX than in standard screens for an out-of-this-world movie-going experience.
