Marvel Studios has released the IMAX poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Audiences will literally see more of GotG Vol. 2 in IMAX than any other format because of sequences designed for the company’s exclusive aspect ratio. Director James Gunn explained the value of seeing the film in IMAX when sharing the new poster on Facebook.

EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK at Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 IMAX Poster – Those who have followed me awhile know that IMAX is the optimal way to view a Guardians 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. Unlike many other films today where screen size shifts and 3D are afterthoughts, we plan our aspect ratios during the script stage, and every single shot is tailored for 3D as we shoot it. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is designed to be a fully immersive experience to be seen IN theaters. I’m glad that we’ve been able to partner up with IMAX from the moment of its conception.

IMAX also tends to give away prints of posters like this on opening night, so be ready to snag your tickets as soon as they go on sale.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is in theaters May 5.
