Marvel fans in the Los Angeles area assemble, Collider has some exciting news! This month, we’re teaming up with IMAX and Marvel Studios to kick off Phase 5 with a free early screening of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, starring Paul Rudd and Jonathan Majors. We’ll be heading into the Quantum Realm in IMAX on February 15 at 7pm in Los Angeles, ahead of its wide release on Thursday.

One of the reasons we’re so excited to show Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania in IMAX is the film was shot with IMAX-certified cameras, which means IMAX screenings will provide up to 26% more picture in select sequences throughout the film.

So how do you get in on this early screening? To get your hands on some free tickets, email with the subject line “I Want to See Quantumania in IMAX.” In the body of the email, please include your full name and if you’d like to bring a guest – early screenings make a pretty sweet Valentine’s Day. Again, the event takes place in Los Angeles on Wednesday, February 15, at 7pm. We’ll contact the people that won free tickets a few days before the screening with more info.

After the emotional Phase 4 of the MCU, and everything that transpired in the original Disney+ series, Loki, where fans were introduced to He Who Remains (Majors), Quantumania returns to the dangerous Quantum Realm. Everything, from WandaVision, to Spider-Man: No Way Home, to the multiverse showdown in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, has led up to this confrontation.

In addition to Rudd reprising his role as the sizeable hero, Spider-Man – sorry, Ant-Man – Majors will appear, technically for the first time, as the supervillain Kang the Conqueror, along with Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Samuel L. Jackson, Kathryn Newton, Michael Peña, and Bill Murray in his MCU debut. Peyton Reed, the director at the helm of the first and second Ant-Man films, returns, working off a screenplay by Jack Kirby and Jeff Loveness. In stark contrast to Scott Lang’s typical humor, Kang is not someone this reality is prepared to mess with, and Quantumania is about to kick off one wild ride for the MCU that makes the Infinity War with Thanos look like a stroll on the beach.

Get your entry in soon! If you need more convincing, check out the latest Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania trailer and synopsis below.

In the film, which officially kicks off phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Super-Hero partners Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) return to continue their adventures as Ant-Man and the Wasp. Together, with Hope’s parents Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), the family finds themselves exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures and embarking on an adventure that will push them beyond the limits of what they thought was possible. Jonathan Majors joins the adventure as Kang. Director Peyton Reed returns to direct the film; Kevin Feige and Stephen Broussard produce.
