It was announced relatively recently that Bond's next film SKYFALL would be getting the IMAX treatment, and now 20th Century Fox has followed suit with the announcement that PROMETHEUS will be receiving an IMAX 3D release on June 8th (same day as the 2D/3D non-IMAX version).

 “'Ridley Scott is one of the best storytellers of our time, whose groundbreaking films Alien and Blade Runner changed the landscape of the science-fiction genre,' said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. 'We’re excited about Prometheus and proud to add him to the prestigious list of directors whose films have been presented in IMAX.'

The IMAX release of Prometheus will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 3D 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."

I'm just going to put this here and walk away slowly so as not to distract you:

will absolutely see it in 3D

Prometheus has actually been SHOT in 3D, and is not being converted (yes the IMAX conversion will take place but that conversion takes place for any movie showing in IMAX that wasn't filmed with IMAX cameras)
people (like some of those below me here, go ahead and thumbs me down) need to actually have knowledge about a movie and it's 3D before trashing it, because it's been pretty well known that the movie was shot and planned in 3D and Ridley himself said he liked shooting in 3D so much that

Come on people...

can't wait to see this movie and can't wait to see it in IMAX 3D!

Prometheus was shot in 3D, wasn't it?

if a film is shot in 3D, I like to see it in 3D. I saw Hugo in 3D because I was so interested in Scorsese's take on the format and I was blown away! It convinced me that 3D can be a wonderful tool in the right hands (and a gimmick in others) and if any other visionary directors want to exploit the new technology, then I think it could be a wonderful, wonderful thing. 3D can be used very artistically (see: Hugo) and the results can be stunning.

Also, while I'm not convinced the IMAX DMR

Also, while I'm not convinced the IMAX DMR process ADDs anything significant, but IMAX theaters tend to at least provide a great cinematic environment to experience a new movie.

If this was a story about a 3D conversion, that bar above me would be red.

what I like about the IMAX conversion is not only the sound you get with IMAX and the increased picture size but mostly the (seemingly) added detail you get with the conversion and more than anything the COLOUR that you get with it. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw Dark of the Moon in IMAX 3D, the colours were just stunning!

You know what would actually be awesome? If they shot the movie 70mm film, kept it in 2D, and presented it in IMAX. Movies are taking a nosedive, even the ones that look good.

Hell No!

There's no way i'm going to go see Prometheus in "eye straining" 3D..... I want to see the movie not spend 80% of it with my glasses off looking at a blurry screen because my eyes hurt!
