Last updated on 03 May 2023.

Planning to enjoy this Marvel flick this weekend? Find out the best format to watch Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 3.

Is Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 3 filmed in IMAX?

We know that this last movie of Guardians will be filled with great Visual Effects and amazing Action scenes. But there is always one question that which theatre type is best? Well, we have an answer.

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 3 is 100% filmed in IMAX. This means that the entire footage will be available in the expanded 1.90:1 aspect ratio on their large screen. This is why it is the best format to watch this movie.

We all know that IMAX usually has a bigger screen size as well as amazing video quality with better brightness and saturation. This comes in handy when watching in IMAX 3D version because 3D glasses dim the light coming from the screen.

But there are also 2D versions to enjoy.

Here is the Official IMAX Trailer:

The last MCU movie to have full footage in expanded size was Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. We also have a list of all MCU Movies in IMAX.

Even the special fans and critics screenings for it happened in IMAX format, so they are telling you where to go when you want to watch this spectacle.

This third film is shot with Red Ranger Monstro cameras, capable of capturing 8K Footage. James Gunn and his cinematographer are known to be big fan of this company and used their cameras in some of their films like The Suicide Squad and Vol 2 as well.

Other Formats for Vol 3

If IMAX is not available in the city, then don’t worry, we have other options for you.

The next best format is Dolby. Dolby has many different types of theatre experiences, but in any of them, there is a good chance that the audio quality will be superior to anything else.

Then, we have the good old 3D. While the popularity of 3D is decreasing in the USA, it is still popular in many Asian countries. And whenever we have this type of movie with big VFX setpieces, 3D adds some extra depth.

But wait, there are many more new options to try. You can also go for 4DX, which has 3D along with rain effects, fog, scent, and motion-enhanced seats. Or ScreenX, where you get 2 extra screens on your left and right with a 270-degree panoramic vision.

So, there is no way you can go wrong with it.

Guardians of The Galaxy 3 Age Ratings

Guardians of The Galaxy officially has a PG-13 age rating. But Note that it is definitely a lot darker than other MCU films, with more strong language, gory action scenes, and serious themes. But there are no intimate or skin scenes.

The official film rating website mentions that “It is Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, strong language, suggestive/drug references, and thematic elements.

This all means that it is suitable for kids, only if they are known of such serious themes before. There is also the news that it will have the first F-bomb in a Marvel Studios venture. So, take the decision carefully with all this data.

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 3 releases in India, the USA, and Worldwide on 05 May 2023.
