“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” to be Released on IMAX
We still don’t know much about the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film, apart from the release date. There have been plenty of casting rumors floating around, particularly regarding Eddie Redmayne and Matt Smith, but with the script apparently still not finished, not much has been revealed.
Today, however, Warner Bros. have announced that they have renewed their contract with IMAX until 2020. This means that Fantastic Beasts will be among those films released as part of the partnership.
The film will be
digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of [t]he IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
In a press release, Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. said,
IMAX provides an immersive moviegoing experience that is unparalleled. We have an exciting and extremely diverse slate and look forward to giving audiences the opportunity to see a variety of films on the largest possible canvas.
