    I can't wait to see TMR on IMAX. The fight scenes, superman stuff and the car chase are going to be incredible! Also, I don't think there will be that much of the movie cut off since TMR running time is only 2hrs and 6 minutes, IMAX is only capable of holding 2 hrs, as of right now.

    Does anyone know when they are going to release this? I've heard anywhere from three to four weeks after May 15th.

    I didn't care much to watch AOTC on IMAX. If anyone did - how was it?

    Actually, nothing will be cut, because IMAX projectors have been upgraded to handle more film or something like that. IMAX's website just says that it will be released sometime in June.

    i've heard that as well. looking forward to it, I just hope the special effects are good enough to stand up to a larger image. Some looked too computery for my liking.

    i also hear that matrix revolution will be the first film to get an imax and normal screen simultaneous release.

    Yes, GHOSTS OF THE ABYSS is playing in both IMAX 3-D and in 35mm 3-D at selected theaters.

    As I've never seen a film in IMAX that was transferred from 35mm film, I apologize if this is a stupid question.

    Will Reloaded be P&S when presented in IMAX since it's a 4:3 format?

    Depends what Warner Brothers and IMAX work out. Apollo 13 was cropped, Attack Of The Clones had a sort of in-between ratio, and Treasure Planet was the proper ratio (as, I believe, Return Of The King will be).

    AOTC also had a few modifications to the movie where activity on the edges of the screen was digitally brought in to fit the IMAX ratio.

    Many of the scenes on Tatooine seem same because the lost space was just empty space between the characters and not stuff cut off at the edges (the sandcrawler scene comes to mind). In the end I don't like the loss of anything, but I really enjoyed A13 and AOTC and plan on seeing as many movies as possible that are processed for IMAX (after I see them in theaters of course).

    Yeah; Disney, for instance, demands the entire box office take and that nothing else be running on the screen at the time for their features. I think the other studios may be a little more reasonable, though.

    Okay, so today's the first day of the IMAX screenings. Please post your thoughts on the presentation if you've seen it.

    Anyone know if it will be opening in all IMAX theaters? The recorded message at the Winnipeg location has a list of movies up to June 15th, and it doesnt include the matrix.
