Beowulf: An IMAX 3D Experience opens November 16, 2007



    Film Opens in 124 IMAX(R) Theatres Worldwide

    LOS ANGELES, CA, Nov. 13 /CNW/ - IMAX Corporation, Paramount Pictures,
Shangri-La Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures today announced that
Beowulf, the latest film from Academy Award(R) winning director Robert
Zemeckis, the filmmaker behind such box office successes as Forrest Gump, The
Polar Express, the Back To The Future series and What Lies Beneath, will open
in 124 IMAX(R) theatres worldwide, beginning with advance shows in select IMAX
theatres on the evening of November 15th. The film has also been re-mastered
into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience(R)
through IMAX DMR(R) (Digital Re-mastering) technology.
    "IMAX 3D has enabled us to tell stories in a whole new way, and we are
very excited to offer moviegoers a chance to experience Beowulf in this
incredible format," said Robert Zemeckis. "IMAX lends itself to the incredible
image detail in Beowulf and in 3D, it will transport the audience directly
into the story."
    "You know a film works well in IMAX 3D when you see the entire audience
reach out to touch the images that float off the screen, and we've already
seen this reaction in IMAX 3D screenings of the film," said Greg Foster,
Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. "We are very pleased to
work with Paramount Pictures, Shangri-La Entertainment and Warner Bros.
Pictures to share this unique experience with IMAX audiences worldwide."
    Inspired by the 9th century English epic poem, Beowulf combines a
digitally enhanced live-action filmmaking technology with an all-star cast
that includes Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, John Malkovich, Robin Wright
Penn, Brendan Gleeson, Crispin Glover, Alison Lohman and Angelina Jolie.  
Neil Gaiman (MirrorMask, the graphic novel Sandman) and Roger Avary (Pulp
Fiction) adapted the legend for the screen.

    Beowulf: An IMAX 3D Experience is scheduled to play at the following
IMAX(R) Theatres beginning November 16th.
