Marvel's Iron Man 3 to get early international IMAX release

Well, it looks like folks in the international realm will get to catch IRON MAN 3 one week earlier than the U.S. and in IMAX no less.  Marvel and Disney have issued a press release stating that the third film in the franchise will be released in IMAX 3D internationally on April 25th with the U.S. seeing release on the already scheduled May 3rd.  It should'nt really come as that big of a surprise given the amount of foreign investors involved in the production, which has been a key factor in the budget for the film. 

Here's the gist:

Marvel’s Iron Man 3 marks the fourth Marvel Entertainment film to be presented in IMAX theatres, following the releases of Iron Man 2 in 2010, Thor in 2011 and Marvel’s The Avengers in 2012 – which all delivered record breaking performances in IMAX theatres.

“Marvel and IMAX are a perfect one-two punch and the Iron Man franchise has become a global phenomenon that resonates with fans around the world,” said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. “We look forward to moviegoers experiencing this highly-anticipated next installment of Tony Stark’s latest adventures in IMAX 3D.”

“With Iron Man 3 building on the events of Marvel’sThe Avengers, audiences are in for yet another incredible moviegoing experience from Marvel Studios,” said Dave Hollis, Executive Vice President of Motion Picture Distribution for The Walt Disney Studios. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer that to fans in the larger-than-life action of IMAX 3D.”

Marvel's IRON MAN 3, directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, James Badge Dale, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, and Jon Favreau will be released in IMAX internationally starting April 25, 2013 and domestically on May 3, 2013.
