Walmart has worked out a way for ordinary people to see the 2D or 3D versions of the upcoming Man of Steel film before it officially releases nationwide. The chain will sell advance tickets for the movie at 8am on May 18. Over 3,700 Walmart stores will be taking part in the promotion. The tickets can be redeemed at select theaters on June 13. The film will begin at 7pm.
You won’t have to do anything special to get the tickets. You’ll be able to purchase them without making a commitment to another product or service. In fact, the tickets will come with a free digital comic book. You will have the option of pre-order Man of Steel on DVD or Blu-ray if you’re so inclined.
Walmart’s information doesn’t specifically state where in the store you can buy the tickets. In my experience, Walmart tends to put up signage at its entrances for products relating to movies and games. My guess is you’ll have to head to the electronics department to purchase the tickets.
There’s also a special website that shows which Walmart stores are participating in addition to the theater associated with that store’s ticket sales.
