IMAX to back away from 3D movies

I'm not a 3D movie hater. I think in the right hands 3D can make an incredibly movie. In fact I know it can. The sad thing is that directors don't usually film for 3D. They just shoot a 2D movie with 3D cameras. There's no use of depth to e...

Terminator: Genisys to release in IMAX 3D

Terminator: Genisys is slowly turning things around. After being easily mocked for both its ridiculous name and its ridiculous first look images the film landed with a solid trailer. I'm not actually excited for it yet, but the announc...

Final Trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

Catching Fire's IMAX shots are cool, says Josh Hutcherson

Man of Steel will release in IMAX and 3D because money

I wish there was more I could say about the situation, but the headline pretty much says it all. Man of Steel, with its "naturalism" and rubber toy Zod, will release in IMAX, 3D, 2D, Smell-O-Vision, Vita-Scope, and Laserdisc formats June 14...

Frankenweenie's texting PSA asks you not to be a jerk

While I'm not a huge fan of people telling me what to do, I am a fan of people better than me telling me what to do. The good people from Disney's Frankenweenie and IMAX theaters have teamed together in order to stop people from being jerk...

IMAX, 35mm, The Dark Knight Rises, and you

Four years ago I went to the local IMAX theater to see The Dark Knight. It was the first mainstream film shot partially in IMAX, and I knew I couldn't see it any other way. And it completely blew me away. I'd seen documentaries about Everes...

DKR poster for midnight IMAX shows is bright and hopeful!

Catching Fire, Star Trek 2 will be partially shot in IMAX

It must be difficult when a filmmaker like Gary Ross manages to shut the door on 3D for one of Lionsgate's biggest new franchises, the Hunger Games series, by likening it to the exact kind of needless spectacle his film views as the vi...

Skyfall lands in the IMAX for the biggest Bond yet

Star Trek 2 may be shot in IMAX, definitely not in 3D

If there is a trend in filmmaking that I can get behind, it's the decision to shoot using IMAX cameras. When dealing with the size of film stock, bigger is absolutely better. I remember the opening scene of The Dark Knight, where the bank r...
