TGV Cinemas is screening Marvel’s Inhumans in its IMAX cinemas and although it sounds great, you’re better off watching something else. That’s because you’re pretty much paying the price of a movie ticket for what is basically a TV pilot.
That said, there’s no denying that watching yet a new Marvel series on the big screen and before most no less. And as an additional incentive, Marvel’s Inhumans was also shot using IMAX cameras. But that’s pretty much all it has going for it.
Thus far, critics haven’t been kind to the new Marvel series. Plus, the fact that it was shot for TV means TV-centric special effects. So ultimately, all you’re really paying for is bragging rights to watch a show meant for TV on a really big screen. The smart money would be to wait for a few weeks and wait until Marvel’s Inhumans airs on either Star World or FX on Astro instead.
But in case you’re keeping score and want to watch it anyway, here’s the official synopsis:
Marvel’s Inhumans explores the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city.
After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where they are greeted with surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them. Now they must find a way to reunite with each other and return to their home before their way of life is destroyed forever.
The series stars Anson Mount, Iwan Rheon, Serinda Swan.
