We will have lots of big screen IMAX wizardry in the next Harry Potter installment! We get wind of this news from our friends at comingsoon:
Last month, during the IMAX Corporation’s 2008 Q2 Earnings Report conference call, Rich Gelfond, the Co-Chairman and Co-CEO of the IMAX Corporation told shareholders, “we believe this film will include approximately 25 minutes in IMAX 3-D split between the opening sequence of the film and the finale.”
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will open in IMAX and conventional theaters on July 17, 2009.
I am pumped to see this action in 3-D IMAX. I am hoping the finale will feature a battle that makes good use of the medium and create a memorable movie going experience. I will watch 3-D films all day long; the more, the better as far as I am concerned.
For those of you that have read the book – is the finale worthy of this IMAX treatment?
