“Eclipse” Will Also Premiere In Imax Theaters
According to MTV Hollywood Crush, the “Eclipse” film will also premiere in IMAX theaters! 🙂
If you thought the stars of the “Twilight” franchise — you know, like Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Launter — were already larger than life, than you thought wrong. Now the holy trinity of teenage fandom will appear bigger than you’d ever imagined come June 30, 2010 when the third film in the saga, “Eclipse,” gets released in regular theaters and in IMAX ones, according to the official “Twilight” twitter page.
“‘Twilight’ moviegoers will have a whole new way to experience this next installment of the series,” explained Richie Fay, Summit Entertainment’s president of domestic theatrical distribution, in a statement. “[‘Eclipse’ will feature] the enhanced image and sound quality of the IMAX Experience, putting them in the movie. The IMAX release puts us on the event film calendar for 2010, and we’re very excited to work with IMAX to bring a new kind of film to the IMAX theater network.”
Just a little technological lesson for you, Crushers (uh, thanks to Wikipedia): The aim of of IMAX “is to dramatically increase the resolution of the image by using a much larger film frame.” This means that not only will you get to see the upped ante of the third movie (read: action and lots of it), but you’ll also now get to view director David Slade’s work in a crisper picture and on a ginormous screen. Heck, it will probably make you feel like you can reach out and touch Edward. Now if only we could find a way to make that happen in real life, too …
