The Monk Comes Down Down the Mountain,” the new film by top Chinese director Chen Kaige, is set to be presented in 3D Imax version.

The martial arts epic, which stars Aaron Kwok, Lin Chiling, Wang Baoqiang and Fan Wei, is set for release in China on July 3.

The story sees famine and hardship force a young monk to leave his Taoist temple in the mountains, plunging him into an unknown outside world. Treating everything in good faith, he ultimately is betrayed, though he finds strength in the teachings of his former Master: A true hero will achieve his goals, regardless of means, if the desire is great enough.

“The continued expansion of the Imax network in China goes hand-in-hand with the important partnerships curated between Imax and Chinese filmmakers like acclaimed director Chen Kaige,” said Greg Foster, senior executive VP, Imax Corp., and CEO of Imax Entertainment.

Box Office: ‘Jurassic World’ Rumbles to Record $204.6 Million Opening

14 June 2015 7:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dinosaurs rule the earth again after “Jurassic World” debuted to a dominant $204.6 million at the domestic box office this weekend.

That commanding number, the second-biggest opening in history, all but ensures that those pesky geneticists will keep futzing around with Triceratops DNA and park-goers will continue to serve as prehistoric reptile kibble for several more installments.

Universal Pictures and Legendary shelled out $150 million to reopen the park, bringing on Sundance sensation Colin Trevorrow (“Safety Not Guaranteed”) to direct and snagging Chris Pratt to star in the sequel. It has been more than a decade since “Jurassic Park III” hit theaters and the absence appears to have spiked interest in the latest film. Credit goes to Trevorrow and crew for recapturing that old Isla Nublar magic.

“This is some pretty rarefied air,” said Nick Carpou, Universal’s distribution chief.

He noted that with a domestic debut on 4,273 screens, “Jurassic World” represents »

'The Walking Dead' May Be Coming to IMAX Theaters Soon

11 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Following a successful theatrical run of episodes of HBO series "Game of Thrones," IMAX has its sights set on another successful TV show: "The Walking Dead."

Greg Foster, senior executive vice president and CEO of IMAX Entertainment, revealed during a recent presentation to investors that the company was interested in expanding its offerings of television episodes on the big screen.

"We'll be looking for more content like 'Game of Thrones,'" Foster told investors. "A high bar to kind of strive for would be 'The Walking Dead,' and we have had conversations with our pals at the AMC network about that."

Earlier this year, IMAX screened the final two episodes of "Game of Thrones"'s fourth season, along with a sneak preview of season five that was created exclusively for the event. The stunt was apparently a success, leading the company to search for other properties interested in »

7 May 2015 11:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following word that Captain America: Civil War has started filming with a massive roll-call of actors, more Marvel news has been forthcoming today, with the announcement that both parts of Avengers: Infinity War will be filmed entirely in IMAX.

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo stated, “The intent with the Infinity War films is to bring ten years of accumulative storytelling to an incredible climax.

We already knew Chadwick Boseman would be making his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War before starring in his own feature film, currently slated for July 2018. In fact, the film will also feature the first appearance of Captain Marvel and the rebooted Spider-Man, and now we learn Paul Rudd will play a part in the film as Ant-Man while at the same time it has been confirmed Emily VanCamp will reprise her role as Sharon Carter/Agent 13 from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Suffice to say, this film is turning into just another Avengers: Age of Ultron, overloaded with characters. In fact, here's the list of characters you'll find in Civil War: Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier »

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ to Be Shot Entirely With Imax Cameras

7 May 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Avengers: Infinity War – Parts 1 & 2″ will be the first films shot entirely with Imax cameras, the wide screen company said Thursday.

Anthony and Joe Russo, the directors of the two-part comic book adventure, will use a new 2D digital camera. As Variety first reported, that camera was produced by Imax and Arri, and is lighter in weight than Imax’s film cameras. The Russos are first out of the gate to use the 2D camera and will shoot 15 minutes of footage for their upcoming “Captain America: Civil War” with the technology.

“The Russos are going to spend the next 15 months or so designing the making of the ‘Avengers’ films with these cameras in mind,” said Greg Foster, Imax Entertainment CEO. “They’re not looking at this a week before they start filming or only focusing on an important section of the film. This is something that’s never happened before.”

IMAX’s Greg Foster Talks Laser Projection and if Older IMAX Films Could Return to Theaters

20 April 2015 5:16 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last week I got my first taste of IMAX laser projection when the company invited a few reporters to the Chinese Theater in Hollywood for a special presentation. While I’d heard laser projection was the future, until last week I’d never seen it in action. After watching a few trailers and movie sequences on one of the biggest movie screens in the world, I’ve been converted. What’s amazing about the IMAX laser projection system is that every part of the screen – from the lower left corner to the top right – was absolutely crystal clear, super bright, and the contrast and black levels were superb. One sequence featured a train rolling along on a mountainside track with smoke billowing out of the top and it looked like I was watching real life coming through a movie screen. We also got to watch the first Star Wars: »

'Captain America: Civil War' to Have Some New Digital IMAX Footage

13 April 2015 9:07 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's no doubt that Captain America: Civil War will be one of the biggest blockbuster events next year when it hits theaters on May 6th, 2016. But now we know that it will be about as big as it can get with some full-format IMAX footage shot for the massive screen. In fact, this IMAX footage will be the first to use a new 2D digital IMAX camera, which was created after the giant film format company realized they needed a camera that took advantage of their massive screen, but didn't need to be shot in 3D or on film. IMAX CEO Greg Foster says, "This is where there was a gap and now we’re filling this gap in our arsenal." Production is about to begin in Atlanta very soon, and Variety reports Anthony & Joe Russo will be using this new IMAX camera to shoot what will amount to about »
