Head over to the movie’s official site,, and you can score up to two seats for a special showing of a 16-minute extended trailer. The preview will be shown in 3-D at IMAX theaters in Mesa and Phoenix this Friday. There will be two showings at each theater (6 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. in Mesa, 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. in Phoenix).
