There's something undeniably satisfying about experiencing something before other people. After all, that's basically the main impulse that drives most hipsters. When it comes to movies, there's really no earlier (and no better) time to see a highly anticipated release than its red carpet premiere. Not everybody gets the chance to walk down the red carpet in his or her lifetime, but now Marvel Entertainment has announced a contest that will allow two lucky Marvel fans to attend the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 world premiere.
According to a recent announcement from Marvel Entertainment, the comic book giant has officially unveiled a video featuring James Gunn and Chris Pratt in which the pair reveal a brand new contest for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Between now and December 10, Marvel fans can upload a photo of themselves to MarvelStudiosHeroActs.com, and the studio will subsequently donate $5 to Save The Children for every post submitted. Taking part in this philanthropic effort will enter the users into a contest in which one lucky winner (as well as another lucky guest) will have to opportunity to attend the red carpet premiere for the next Guardians of the Galaxy and see the film before it officially opens for wide release on May 5.
Even if you do not win, it's definitely worth it to take part in the Hero Acts contest. At best, you will win the chance to walk down the red carpet for the premiere of one of the most highly anticipated films in recent memory. At worst, your effort will help provide learning materials and various other forms of relief to children in need all over the world. Seriously, you would be hard pressed to come up with a real downside to this.
Check out the video below to see a better look at the finer details of the contest:
