The Russo Bros. Show off the IMAX Benefits of Avengers: Endgame
Avengers: Endgame is already predicted to be one of this year’s biggest films, especially after the success of Avengers: Infinity War. While fans are eagerly awaiting the conclusion to Marvel’s Infinity Saga, directors Anthony and Joe Russo want everyone to watch the film in IMAX. In the latest promo video for Endgame, the Russo brothers showed off the scale and clarity that IMAX gives the film. Endgame was shot entirely with digital IMAX cameras, which also means the only way to experience it as intended is to watch the movie in an IMAX theater.
“It just made sense to us that the grandest cinematic events in Marvel history should be executed in full IMAX,” said Joe Russo. “The level of ambition in these films is pretty high. We needed equipment that could help us fulfill that ambition. As filmmakers, it’s an amazing tool for us. The way that it captures light, the way that it captures color…They’re fantastic cameras. It’s at a resolution that is unprecedented.”
“The IMAX screen has a different height than the traditional movie,” added Anthony Russo. “Having that extra verticality gives us a wider range of how we film and how we shoot these characters.”
Earlier this week, Marvel released 32 new character posters, which confirmed a few returning characters. Endgame may be the last chance to see all of these characters share the screen for the big showdown with Thanos.
Avengers: Endgame will arrive in theaters on April 26. What do you think about the latest promo video? And are you excited by the benefits of IMAX? Let us know in the comment section below!
