If you want to see Aquaman early, you should sign up for Amazon Prime.

The upcoming DC Comics adaptation comes out on Dec. 21, but some cinemas are offering preview screenings on Dec. 15.

Tickets are available through Atom Tickets, although they’re only on offer for 7pm screenings on Dec. 15, so mark your calendars now. Amazon Prime members can order up to 10 tickets each, so if you’re not completely onboard with paying money to Amazon, maybe you can just find a friend who already does.

This is a limited release compared to the main release on Dec. 21. About 1000 theaters are participating, including AMC, Regal, National Amusement Theaters and ArcLight cinemas.

The Amazon Prime deal only includes cinema chains in the U.S., but overseas viewers don’t necessarily need to feel cheated out of seeing this movie early. Aquaman actually comes out in China on Dec. 7 and throughout Europe, Australia and the U.K. on Dec. 13 and 14, meaning that by international standards, the U.S. is actually late. Consider this your official warning to start blocking spoilers on social media at least a week before Aquaman‘s main U.S. release date.
