Love it, hate it, or lukewarm it, TERMINATOR: GENISYS is coming to theaters in 5 months' time and if you're going to catch a theater screening, might as well go big or go home, eh? What's being dubbed as the "reset" of the Terminator franchise is now being re-mastered for IMAX theaters. 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 actually sitting on Jai Courtney's bulbous head.

Producer Megan Ellison states that, "The IMAX experience is the most immersive film experience in the world, and I am thrilled that fans of the franchise and newcomers alike will be able to experience the film in this premium format." She's right in that IMAX is the most immersive experience, but only when films take the time to shoot in that format (INTERSTELLAR, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL). I was hoping that with the previously mentioned, we might see more movies adopt the format but it looks as though it wasn't meant to be. I can hardly blame folks, as most theaters billed as IMAX are anything but. Hey, at least we have one scene in the upcoming FORCE AWAKENS shot in the actual format!  In the meantime, here's hoping the positive script reviews we saw yesterday for TERMINATOR: GENISYS are on par wih the final film experience.

TERMINATOR: GENISYS hits IMAX and regular theaters alike on July 1, 2015.

Just a cash grab.. SO many films these days are 'remastering for IMAX', but a true IMAX experience is one where the film is shot, at least partially, in the format (Interstellar, TDKR, etc).

Forget remastering, re-cast Kyle Reese and re-shoot his scenes!

Don't waste your time remastering this film for IMAX 3D, cause you'll still have Jai Courtney playing Kyle Reese. You don't need a room full of movie experts to point out that Jai Courtney looks NOTHING like Michael Biehn in The Terminator! This film would have a better chance for me if they actually took the time to cast someone who looks less like a bodybuilder (Courtney) and more like the a realistic solider from the frightening and starving future (Biehn)!

I know Ellisons brother was main producer on this

but im so hopefull that she had some input on the direction and script. If she did, I can guarantee you we will get ourselves a more than decent Terminator flick.

I'm definitely buying a ticket for the standard show, but when will they learn that converting a movie after it's been filmed always turns out to be underwhelming?
