The new Spider-Man movie will be swinging into IMAX 3D theaters in 2017
When the new Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man movie arrives in 2017, it will be doing so on the biggest screens imaginable. IMAX Theaters today confirmed that Jon Watts’ Spider-Man will arrive in IMAX on its new worldwide date of July 7, 2017. The announcement was made by Josh Greenstein, president of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony Pictures, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, and Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment.
When the new Spider-Man movie, which Sony Pictures Entertainment is teaming with Marvel Studios to produce, enters wide release, it will also be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX 3D format.
The highly-anticipated next installment in the $4 billion franchise, Spider-Man stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. It will be directed by Jon Watts and produced by Feige and Amy Pascal.
“There’s so much about Spider-Man – including the web-slinging action – that lends itself perfectly to the IMAX screen,” say Greenstein. “We are confident that audiences everywhere around the world will want to see it in IMAX.”
“Time and time again IMAX delivers super-hero sized movie going experiences to fans,” adds Feige. “With the anticipation for Spider-Man climbing, we are excited that IMAX has committed early to this extended release plan — it will be a great way for audiences around the world to experience such a big event film.”
“IMAX’s long-standing relationship with Marvel and Sony first began with Spider-Man in 2002,” says Foster, “establishing the ultimate way for fans to be transported into the world of their favorite characters like Peter Parker. By re-teaming with our friends at Sony and Marvel on the newest Spider-Man reboot, we are excited to deliver audiences what they’re asking for: a must-see cinematic adventure – in IMAX.”
The IMAX 3D release of the new Spider-Man movie will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 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.
