AMC Hosting 31-Hour MCU Marathon For ‘Infinity War’ Premiere
With the epic release of the second trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, fan anticipation is approaching cosmic levels for Marvel’s upcoming ensemble film. The superhero event is building to become not only the largest Marvel Cinematic Universe outing yet, but likely the biggest all-around movie of 2018. These tall expectations may leave the more casual fans of Marvel Studios a little lost, especially if they haven’t had the chance to catch up on the latest films. Luckily, AMC Theaters have announced plans to host a huge MCU marathon, scheduled to take place before the premiere of Infinity War.
Happening between the dates of April 25th-26th, 11 past adventures from Marvel’s film slate will play back-to-back over a 31-hour period. That’s about 1.5 days of nothing but big-screen superhero antics, so plenty of coffee may definitely be in order. Costing about $75 USD, viewers will receive “marathon only collectibles, exclusive content, and a special concession offer” in addition to their theater experience. A complete list of the scheduled films is listed below.
- Iron Man (1:30pm)
- The Incredible Hulk (4:00pm)
- Thor (6:15pm)
- Captain America: The First Avenger (9:00pm)
- Marvel’s The Avengers (11:30pm)
- Guardians of the Galaxy (2:15am)
- Avengers: Age of Ultron (4:30am)
- Captain America: Civil War (7:15am)
- Doctor Strange (10:00am)
- Spider-Man: Homecoming (12:45pm)
- Black Panther (3:15pm)
- Avengers: Infinity War (6:00pm)
An unfortunate reality is that not all of Marvel Studios’ films will showcase at the AMC event, as fan-favorites such as Captain America: Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Thor: Ragnarok have been left out of the MCU marathon. Though, that is probably for the best as a full 19-film marathon may be a bit too long for the vast majority of filmgoers to endure.
Another shortcoming is that the event will not be available in many areas. So far, only two AMC venues have been specified for the 31-hour screening: AMC Empire 25 in Times Square, New York and AMC Disney Springs 24 in Orlando, Florida. Alternatively, the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles, California is also holding a similar MCU marathon for $100 USD, featuring an even more super-sized assortment of perks.
All in all, if fans have the means and a penchant for sleep deprivation, this marathon seems like it could be a pretty swell time. For those not equipped to handle this instance of extreme binge-watching, there’s always the option of holding a mini-marathon at home, but admittedly, it likely won’t compare to the large-scale experience AMC is offering. Avengers: Infinity War releases in theaters on April 27th.
