I’m a fan of the IMAX format, the original format, not those mini-screen IMAX ‘experience’ theaters. So I was happy to hear that J.J. Abrams decided to film a sequence in IMAX for Episode VII. (link)
A new featurette was just released with Abrams and cast members from the movie talking about how important IMAX was to the final product. See how IMAX puts Star Wars fans in the center of action like never before.
Are you planning to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens in IMAX or will any screen format do for you?
Lucasfilm and visionary director J.J. Abrams join forces to take you back again to a galaxy far, far away as Star Wars returns to the big screen with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The film stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Max Von Sydow. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk are producing with Tommy Harper and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers. The screenplay is by Lawrence Kasdan & J.J. Abrams and Michael Arndt. Star Wars: The Force Awakens releases in U.S. theaters on December 18, 2015.
