Movie fans will have an opportunity to meet Mr. Doctor — er, Doctor Strange — a few weeks early.
Marvel Studios and IMAX have announced that a 15-minute sneak peek at the superhero fantasy starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme will screen Oct. 10 in more than 115 theaters across North America.
The preview, titled Expand Your Mind: An IMAX 3D Exclusive First Look, will showcase previously unseen 3-D footage from the Scott Derrickson-directed movie, which opens Nov. 4.
“I am thrilled to take audiences along on the visual journey of Doctor Strange and give them an early peek at what we’ve been working on,” Derrickson said in the announcement. He also noted that the finished film will feature more than an hour of specially formatted IMAX sequences.
News of the preview was accompanied by a fresh teaser video, which culminates in a humorous introduction between Strange and rival spellcaster Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen). Watch the video above.
Tickets for the sneak peek are available on a first-come, first-served basis at SeeItFirst.net.
