As home theater technology improves and video becomes a more ubiquitous method of communication, there is a lot of pressure among movie studios to deliver a product that really separates itself from the crowd. One of these ways is to ‘go large’ and film in… Read More »Disney signs IMAX for multi-year deal. Big screens for big movies

Welcome to a whole new galaxy and meet its new guardians. The new international trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has tons of new footage and focuses a bit less on the comedy and more on the adventure.
In a recent Facebook post director James Gunn wrote about the 3D and IMAX 3D versions and why GoTG will be a must-see in 3D:
“Just got out of working on the Guardians cut for IMAX 3D and I’m unbelievably excited about it. Guardians of the Galaxy has been planned as a 3D film from its very inception. Yes, if you see the film in 2D, you’ll get a full experience. But the 3D experience promises a little something extra. Unlike many directors, I’ve been actively involved with converting every shot to 3D, making sure it works perfectly for the story and the film, making sure it’s spectacular and immersive without being silly, distracting, or overly showy. 3D conversion was once far inferior to shooting in 3D, but over the past couple years new technology has allowed us incredible control over the 3D effects, making it equal to or in some cases greater than shooting in 3D.
As an EXTRA benefit for those who see the film in IMAX 3D, we will be changing aspect ratios throughout the film in a way that makes the experience even fuller and more encompassing. I’ve personally chosen all the places where the changes occur and, again, I love how it’s coming along. The changing aspect ratios in this case are actually a part of the storytelling.”

Get ready to marvel at the power of Asgard’s favorite son. Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World arrives on 3D Combo Pack, Single-Disc Blu-ray, and DVD on February 25th and will be available on Digital 3D and Digital HD on February 4th! Bonus features include an exclusive first look at Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, never-before-seen extended and deleted scenes and more!
Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World continues the big screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos… but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
The further adventures of Thor was a great film. It picked up where The Avengers left off with Thor and his buddies doing a little cleanup around the 9 worlds and ended with a fantastic battle that showed Thor’s earthly companions can hold their own, at least when it comes to technological solutions. Of course, the whole movie was stolen by Loki (in more ways than one) and I can’t wait to see more of the two brothers from Asgard battling wits versus brawn in future films. Someone make that happen. In the meantime, definitely add this movie to your shelf.
