At the Television Critics Association’s press tour today, Marvel confirmed that the Inhumans IMAX premiere episode will be about ten minutes shorter than the ABC network premiere of the same episode. The IMAX episode will run for seventy five minutes, while the network premiere (almost a month later) will run for eighty four minutes.
It’s interesting to note that Marvel has decided to shorten the length of the IMAX version, given that fans will have to pay for movie tickets to see that one.
What do you think the reasons are behind the extended version of the Inhumans premiere versus IMAX? Let us know in the comments below!
Check out the series’ synopsis below:
“After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself.”
Marvel’s Inhumans stars Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Iwan Rhoen as Maximus, Ken Leung as Karnak, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Mike Moh as Triton, Sonya Balmores as Auran and Ellen Woglomas Louise.
The first two episodes will be screening in IMAX theaters for two weeks starting on September 1. Inhumans will then premiere on ABC at 8/7c on September 29.
