Secret Cinema has announced its first foray into the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) by announcing plans for a Guardians Of The Galaxy experience this summer.
The renowned live cinema experts will take over a secret location in London and plant fans right in the middle of the action as they join the Ravagers on a high-stakes adventure that mirrors the events of the film.
Fans will also have to do their best to avoid the Nova Corps as they explore a series of locations from both Guardians of the Galaxy movies, including Contraxia, the Kyln and the planet of Knowhere.
Tickets for the event begin from £47, with on sale dates set to be confirmed in the coming days.
Secret Cinema CEO Max Alexander said: “Working with The Walt Disney Studios is much more than access to a treasure trove of titles, it’s about bringing together a unique combination of skills and expertise to build ever more authentic and amazing experiences, raising the bar again for what we mean by ‘immersive cinema.’”
As DigitalSpy reports, it’s thought to be the first of three Disney films to receive the Secret Cinema treatment after the two entered into a multi-title agreement.
It comes as production continues apace on Guardians Of The Galaxy 3, which will be the last to feature the current set of protagonists.
The film series stars Chris Pratt as Guardians leader Peter Quill/Star Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Bradley Cooper as talking raccoon Rocket and Karen Gillan as former adversary turned ally Nebula.
Speaking to The Deadline Podcast, Gunn was asked about the future of the series. “This is the end for us,” he set out, saying that Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 will be “the last time people will see this team of Guardians”.
Indicating that the upcoming film will signal a shift in tone, he said: “It’s big. It’s so, so big and dark, and different from what people might be expecting it to be.
“I just want to be true to the characters, the story and give people the wrap-up that they deserve for the story. That’s always a little bit scary, [but] I’m doing my best.” He added: “I’m aware that the third film in most trilogies sucks – not always.”
The new Guardians film is currently slated for release on May 5, 2023, as part of Marvel Cinematic Universe’s so-called ‘Phase Four’.
