Who wants to see Resident Evil Afterlife in IMAX? It’s just been announced by both Sony Pictures and the IMAX Corporation that the fourth installment of the Paul WS Anderson franchise will be distributed in their wide screened venues. Like every other movie hitting theaters these days Afterlife will be in 3D and digitally remastered to fit IMAX standards.
One of the big marketing ploys that the studio has been shoving down out throats is the technology that was used to shoot the film. Apparently, the director and cinematographer used the same cameras that James Cameron shot Avatar with to get their 3D effect. A feat that we find hard to believe because the quality in the teaser trailer looks like crap. But then again when the first trailer for Avatar was released it too received mixed reviews.
Here’s a bit of the press release that was sent out from Sony and IMAX Corp:
“In 3D, fans of Resident Evil will have a whole new way to enjoy this next exciting chapter, and we’re delighted that audiences will also have the opportunity to experience the film in IMAX 3D at digital IMAX locations, where they will feel like they are virtually in the movie,” said Rory Bruer, President, Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures Releasing.
“Our ability to include Resident Evil into the IMAX lineup for 2010 is a direct result of the growing IMAX theatre network, and we’re excited to work once again with Sony Pictures to reach the vast fan-base for this series,” said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. “Our partnership with Sony Pictures Entertainment is growing with our digital theatre network, and we’re looking forward to continued success with them as we open more theatres, release more event films and expand our audience globally.”
