While we know that next summer’s the Amazing Spider-Man is being shot for 3-D, we now also know that the movie will be released in IMAX 3-D.
IMAX Corporation and Sony Pictures issued a joint statement revealing that the highly-anticipated superhero film will be offered in IMAX 3D as well as standard 3D and 2D.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be able to offer this extraordinary new Spider-Man adventure in IMAX,” said Rory Bruer from Sony Pictures Entertainment. “[Director] Marc Webb and the entire production team have been working tirelessly to deliver a 3D motion picture that will take the Spider-Man experience to a whole new level. Audiences will literally feel like they are swinging through the streets of New York and that will only be accentuated when seen in IMAX.”
Meanwhile, IMAX Corporation Chairman and President Greg Foster said that he was left speechless by what he had seen of the film.
“I was blown away after getting a sneak peek at some early footage for The Amazing Spider-Man and this latest installment in the iconic franchise is a perfect DNA match for IMAX,” Foster said. “The film is an important addition to our 2012 film slate and we’re excited to be working with Marc Webb, Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and the team at Sony Pictures Entertainment to take IMAX and Spider-Man fans around the globe on this next adventure in IMAX 3D.”
