Spider-Man, one of the world’s most beloved superheroes, will once again come to IMAX Theatres for a network-wide event run when the film is released in theatres on its new worldwide date.
As the 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 IMAX 3D release of the “Spider-Man” 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 customised theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
Commenting on the announcement, Sony Pictures Worldwide Marketing and Distribution president Josh Greenstein said, “There’s so much about Spider-Man – including the web-slinging action – that lends itself perfectly to the IMAX screen. We are confident that audiences everywhere around the world will want to see it in IMAX.”
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige added, “Time and time again IMAX delivers super-hero sized movie going experiences to fans. 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.”
The highly anticipated next installment in the USD4 billion franchise, which will star Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, and will focus far more than ever before on Parker’s experiences in high school.
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios announced in February 2015 that Spider-Man would appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the character appearing in a Marvel Cinematic Universe film and Sony releasing a Spider-Man film co-produced by Feige and Amy Pascal.
On 20th January, it was announced that the “Spider-Man” reboot’s release date has been moved forward 3 weeks to 7th July 2017.
