See 007 In SKYFALL In IMAX Theatres Across North America On Nov. 8, 2012
IMAX Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment today announced that the long-awaited next chapter in the famed James Bond franchise, SKYFALL™, will be released in IMAX® theatres across North America on Nov. 8, 2012, one day ahead of its wide release on November 9. This is the first IMAX installment of the iconic Bond film franchise.
The IMAX presentation of SKYFALL will be specially formatted to feature a larger aspect ratio than the conventional release for the entirety of the film. This aspect ratio, which is optimized to take advantage of the IMAX screen, will allow audiences to see more of the image and result in a full panorama of the action – further immersing them into the vast scale and scope of the film.
Daniel Craig is back as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 in SKYFALL™, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In SKYFALL, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. The film is from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment. Directed by Sam Mendes. Produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. Written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and John Logan.
Commenting on the announcement, Rory Bruer, president of Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures said, “We think IMAX audiences are in for a special treat – we think the larger aspect ratio takes great advantage of the IMAX format. But what’s most exciting is that our filmmakers are making a movie that delivers everything James Bond fans could ask for.”
“We’re excited that fans of both James Bond and IMAX will be able to preview this film one day early,” said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. “Through the use of the expanded aspect ratio, director Sam Mendes’ vision is bringing the iconic 007 character to life as never before, providing audiences everywhere an up-close, you-are-there experience that can’t be missed.”
