Re-upping their existing long-term partnership, IMAX Corporation and 20th Century Fox jointly announced today that the companies have signed a new multi-picture agreement including four key future tentpoles from the Fox slate. The deal includes Maze Runner: The Death Cure, Predator, Alita: Battle Angel and the studio’s untitled Marvel film, all of which will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX format and released in IMAX theatres worldwide.
“After sharing success with such recent box-office hits as the global phenomenon ‘Deadpool,’ we are thrilled to sweeten the existing deal with our friends and partners at Twentieth Century Fox by providing IMAX fans worldwide a selection of the studio’s most exciting upcoming blockbusters,” said Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. “With this agreement, we look forward to expanding our partnership with Fox and together offer fans around the world IMAX’s one-of-a-kind movie-going experience.”
The IMAX release of each film 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.
