Batman Begins Hits IMAX on June 15

Warner Bros. Pictures will release “Batman Begins: The IMAX Experience” in select IMAX theatres beginning Wednesday, June 15th, concurrent with the 35mm release. Batman Begins, which explores the origins of the Batman legend, has been digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (digital re-mastering) technology.

This is the fifth IMAX DMR release from Warner Bros. Pictures, following the unprecedented success of “The Polar Express: An IMAX 3D Experience” which has grossed more than $45 million in IMAX theatres worldwide. Moviegoers will have the opportunity to watch Batman fly across the huge IMAX screen while being surrounded by state-of-the-art digital surround sound.

Directed by Christopher Nolan (“Memento”) and produced by Emma Thomas, Charles Roven and Larry Franco, Batman Begins stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The story finds the disillusioned industrial heir Bruce Wayne, in the wake of his parents’ murder, traveling the world to seek the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. He returns to Gotham and unveils his alter-ego: Batman, a masked crusader who uses his strength, intellect and an array of high tech deceptions to fight the sinister forces that threaten the city.

“Batman is truly a larger-than-life character, and we’re thrilled to give fans the opportunity to experience the breathtaking scope, gripping suspense and exhilarating action of ‘Batman Begins’ in the IMAX format,” said Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

“‘Batman Begins’ presents a new, never-seen before take on the origins of the Batman legend and Bruce Wayne’s quest to rid Gotham city of injustice,” says director and co-screenwriter Christopher Nolan. “The IMAX format provides audiences with an oppportunity to further immerse themselves in the world of Batman and amplify their experience of his extraordinary story.”

The large 15/70 film frame, combined with the IMAX projection technology and remarkable sound system, will provide moviegoers with an immersive, extraordinary cinematic experience.
