Star Wars: Episode VII to have single scene shot in IMAX

October 31, 2014 – 2:43 pm | Permalink

We Got This Covered reports:

Over the past few months, Disney has been ramping up its IMAX output as part of the company’s recent deal with IMAX productions, with notable films including Maleficent and Guardians of the Galaxy being released in the format. And today we’ve learned that Star Wars: Episode VII — arguably the biggest film on the company’s slate — will also contain a single scene shot in IMAX.

News comes by way of Variety, who ran a piece about the evolving nature of the format in the industry and how J.J. Abrams plans to utilize IMAX in the upcoming reboot.

“The benefits outweigh the headache of shooting on Imax cameras,” says Abrams, who used them for a single sequence in “Star Wars.” “The opportunity to have an action sequence for this movie done in Imax’s natural format was too delicious an idea to pass up. As a filmgoer, it’s something I want to see.”

Fayetteville, North Carolina IMAX opens in November

October 31, 2014 – 2:40 pm | Permalink

The Fayetteville Observer writes:

Again and again, Colin Hendrickson asked the two dozen men around him whether they had any sharp objects in their pockets and had washed their hands.

The precautions were important for the task they were about to undertake – unpacking, unrolling and hoisting a 40-by-65-foot sheet of silvery coated vinyl on which the Fayetteville area’s first Imax movies will be projected,
starting in November.
“This is a really hard thing to replace,” Hendrickson said Wednesday as his crew installed the screen at Patriot Cinema 14 on Lake Valley Drive, across from Embassy Suites hotel near Skibo Road.

The cost, he guessed, would be “north of $60,000.”
