While we still don’t know much about the plot or new characters of Star Trek Beyond, we do know this: we’ll be able to see whatever happens in the upcoming film on the biggest screen possible, as Paramount has officially revealed plans to release the third Star Trek film in IMAX. Now, if they’d just tell us anything else about this movie…
Right now, if you live in New York City and want to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 70mm IMAX, you’d have to drive two hours to Philadelphia. If you live in Chicago, you’d have to drive three hours to Indianapolis. If you live in Austin, you’d have to drive 10 hours to Branson, Missouri.
Just in case the new trailer, new poster and tickets for Star Wars: The Force Awakens wasn’t enough for you, there’s even more today.

Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the absolute best films of the year, and one that you can now take home on DVD and Blu-ray (though hopefully the latter) to WITNESS again and again at your leisure.

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.

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.
