To all IMAX fans, WB just might be your new favorite studio!
An announcement was made today about Warner Bros. uniting with IMAX to bring a whole roster of spectacle driven, often genre based flicks to the biggest of theater screens. We have the list of such 20 films below, many with release dates, and few with extra nuggets of production info. Check it...
Wally Pfister's sci-fi thriller TRANSCENDENCE, starring Johnny Depp, will get the magnifying treatment, which makes sense since Pfister shot scenes for TDKR in 70mm. The flick is set to shoot early next year. Afonso Cuaron's long-orbiting sci-fi flick GRAVITY 3D, starring Bullock and Clooney, will also go IMAX, though we still don't when. According to Hollywood Elsewhere (via The Playlist), "VFX were 95% completed, 3D and color grading [are] still work in progress."
Doug Liman's ALL YOU NEED IS KILL, The Wachowski's sci-fi thriller JUPITER ASCENDING and Noam Murro's 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE (new title?) will all be shown in 3D as well as IMAX 3D. JUPITER ASCENDING is the only figured to shoot in 3D, not simply post-convert.
