‘Ant-Man’ Extended IMAX Preview Features Prison Fights, Superhero Fights, Lots of Fights
Marvel really isn’t holding anything back when it comes to the Ant-Man previews, and with a little over a week to go before the film hits theaters, we have officially reached Peak Marketing. The studio has released an extended IMAX preview for the film, which runs at just under six minutes in length and features new footage mixed with stuff we’ve seen in previous trailers and TV spots.
Most notably, the preview opens with Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang, incarcerated for robbery and finding himself at the center of a prison fight — he’s…not…great at fighting, but that will change when he becomes the Ant-Man and is forced to embark on a heroic mission, one that will (hopefully) redeem him with his family. There’s also plenty of stuff with Michael Pena’s character, as well as more footage of a shrunken-down Lang showing off his huge abilities.
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
