Marvel Studios' Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania initiates Phase Five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). We're about to embark on a bold new chapter in the all-conquering superhero franchise as the plucky Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) must return to the dreaded Quantum Realm where he was stranded for five years.
Despite the tiny proportions of its main character, as a movie, Ant-Man is no shrinking violet. The dimensions of the film, as marshalled by returning director Peyton Reed, are designed to overwhelm and amaze as the colours and gravity-defying rules of the Quantum Realm burst from the screen.
This means one thing: it's time to enlarge your Cineworld viewing experience and take your Ant-Man screening to the next level. Scroll down to discover all the ways in which you can do this.
1. Glimpse more of the Quantum Realm in IMAX
26% more of it, in fact. IMAX's singular aspect ratio (1.90:1 versus anamorphic widescreen's 2.39:1) adds greater height to the movie's astonishing depiction of the Quantum Realm, compelling you to pick out more Easter Eggs and details from the teeming, multifaceted backdrops. The following IMAX trailer indicates the difference between standard widescreen and enlarged IMAX presentations.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania was filmed for the IMAX remastering process, allowing dual projection and perfectly tuned surround sound to transport you into a remarkable nether world where time and space are contorted beyond recognition. Every frame glistens with astonishing clarity, warmth and depth while every nuance of the sound design resonates to heart-pounding effect.
2. Feel every facet of the spectacular action in 4DX
Immersive 4DX technology, replete with thrilling multi-sensory effects and moving seats, is exclusive to Cineworld cinemas in the UK and Ireland. So, don't miss the chance to truly feel the new Ant-Man movie as you watch it.
Be a part of the Ant-Man action with stimulating effects like water, wind, scent and strobe lighting, all of which are timed to enhance what’s happening on screen. High-tech motion programming commands your seat to move and vibrate in time with every punch, dive and shrinking effect, so you'll feel like you're in Scott Lang's miniaturised shoes.
3. Be engulfed by a world beyond your imagination in ScreenX
The Quantum Realm is a dynamic environment that exists beyond ours, and, of course, Scott Lang has past form, having been stranded in the realm between the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. In Quantumania, this is where Scott and his allies come across the deadly Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), the MCU's brand-new 'big bad' who presents Scott with a dangerous new proposition.
Director Peyton Reed and his filmmaking team stuff the Quantum Realm with all manner of remarkable sights, so do the concept justice and experience it in ScreenX, exclusive to Cineworld cinemas in the UK. The state-of-the-art technology uses up to 12 additional projectors to extend the film out onto the side walls of the screening room.
More than 52 minutes of the movie are projected in ScreenX's revolutionary 270-degree format, meaning that you'll be surrounded in your seat as the Quantum Realm reveals itself. Get a taste of the ScreenX experience in the following Ant-Man trailer.
