While in production on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams released a photo teasing an IMAX camera on set. A few months later, the director revealed that only one scene was actually filmed in IMAX, but he promised that it was a pretty great one. But which scene is it, exactly?
Corporate synergy at work: IMAX screenings of Terminator Genisys, which is being distributed by Paramount Pictures, will open with a five minute preview of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, also a Paramount release. It’s a smart move! Because c’mon, is anyone who shells out of the big bucks to see Terminator Genisys on the biggest screen possible going to complain about an extended tease of the new Tom Cruise action? Of course not.
The massive success of Game of Thrones’ all-too-brief IMAX run naturally left the company ravenous for another TV event, and who better to follow than The Walking Dead? Yes, the Ricktatorship might hack and slash the undead of an IMAX screen near you, if the company (and fans!) have their way.
Avengers: Infinity War, the two-part conclusion to the current Marvel Cinematic Universe, promises to be one of the biggest movie experiences in recent memory. And to make it even bigger, Marvel and Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo have announced that both installments of the finale will be shot entirely in IMAX, a first for a Hollywood feature film.
Now that Disney has struck a deal with IMAX for future releases of their MCU and Star Wars films, we can expect the filmmakers behind these movies to begin utilizing IMAX cameras for a more immersive experience. But while each of these films will be formatted for release in IMAX theaters, it’s been unclear which (if any) of them will actually shoot with those nifty cameras. According to a new report, Captain America: Civil War most definitely will.
It's not much of surprise these days when a major movie announces it is going to be released in IMAX. But, Disney has taken things to the next level with a new three-year partnership with IMAX that will see all the upcoming Marvel and Star Wars films, plus a number of live-action tentpoles and select animated films released in IMAX theaters.
A big reason why Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol became the highest-grossing film in the franchise’s history was its spectacular use of the IMAX format (and the IMAX ticket upcharge) to give its action scenes — and particularly Tom Cruise’s Spider-Man-like climb up the side of the Burj Khalifa — a unique scale and scope. Not surprisingly, then, Paramount has announced that when the next Mission: Impossible comes to theaters in July, it will do so on IMAX screens all over the world.
Earlier today ‘Game of Thrones’ teased a look behind the scenes at season 5, but the upcoming IMAX screenings will be even bigger, and not just literally. The George R.R. Martin fantasy drama has released a new trailer for its forthcoming IMAX presentation, unboxing a brand-new bit of footage from season 5 to boot!
HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ somehow managed to up its epic scale even further with IMAX screenings to debut the season 5 trailer, but it seems the January 23 screening has officially been de-throned. In a good news-bad news move, the screenings have been pushed back to a later premiere date, adding 50 additional theaters around the country in the process.
Late yesterday we learned the news that ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 had wrought a large addition to the cast, but the latest shocker from HBO’s epic fantasy-drama, proves even bigger. IMAX big! Not only has ‘Game of Thrones’ partnered with hundreds of theaters for its first ever IMAX TV screenings, but so too will the first season 5 trailer debut exclusively with the larger-than-Westeros event!
