IMAX Signs Deal with Warner Bros. for 20 Movies Through 2013

Posted on Thursday, April 29th, 2010 7:34 PM by Scott Jentsch

IMAX  GraphicIMAX Corporation announced yesterday that they have struck a deal with Warner Bros. Pictures to release up to 20 movies in the next three years in IMAX theaters.

The movies mentioned in the press release include:

  • Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole 3D (September 24, 2010)
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (3D) (November 19, 2010)
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II (3D) (July 15, 2011)
  • Happy Feet 2 (3D) (November 18, 2011)
  • The Hobbit (December 2012 and 2013)

Warner Bros. and IMAX also plan to release an additional 15 movies over the course of 2011, 2012 and 2013, including:

  • Gravity
  • Dark Shadows
  • Fury Road
  • Batman 3
  • Superman

"Our track record with IMAX has been incredible, and incorporating 3D into this collaborative effort will serve as the ultimate experience for our audiences," said Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. "We are extraordinarily proud of our forthcoming slate and eager to offer these films to audiences in the most premium of movie-going experiences."

There's no mention in the press release about any of these movies being filmed with IMAX cameras, so it's safe to assume that they will be converted from traditional 35mm film and HD movie camera footage. With the rising number of releases of mainstream titles in IMAX theaters, it would be nice to see more movies created with the higher source format that is possible with IMAX and 65/70mm film, as was done for portions of The Dark Knight.
