    LOS ANGELES, June 5 /CNW/ - IMAX Corporation (NASDAQ:   IMAX; TSX: IMX),
DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures today announced that Transformers:
Revenge of the Fallen, directed by Michael Bay and featuring scenes filmed
with IMAX(R) cameras, will debut in a record 167 IMAX(R) theatres domestically
in conjunction with the film's nationwide release in conventional theatres on
June 24, 2009. Pre-release buzz is very strong for the film, one of the most
highly anticipated films of the year. The film will also open in IMAX theatres
internationally.
    Transformers Revenge of the Fallen: The IMAX Experience will feature
select scenes filmed with IMAX cameras. Director Michael Bay has seamlessly
integrated the IMAX footage with state-of-the-art CGI and visual effects to
create an unprecedented look and feel for the sequel to Transformers. The
movie sequences shot in traditional 35mm will be digitally re-mastered into
the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience(R) with IMAX
DMR(R) (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The IMAX DMR scenes will appear in
the traditional "letterbox" shape, while scenes shot with IMAX's cameras will
expand vertically on the IMAX screen.
    Every IMAX theatre is specially designed to put the audience IN the
movie. The unique theatre geometry of an IMAX theatre combined with crystal
clear images, laser-aligned digital sound and maximized field of view provides
the world's most immersive movie experience.
    "The extraordinary level of detail and intensity captured by the IMAX
camera creates many exciting possibilities for us with this film," said
Michael Bay, the film's director. "IMAX's all-encompassing format will take
this story to a new level, and I am once again very excited to share The IMAX
Experience with Transformers fans around the world."
    "Michael Bay, DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures have created one
of the most anticipated movies of the year and we're very excited to be a part
of it," said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. "With the recent growth of our
network, we have the opportunity to reach the widest day and date IMAX
audience ever, which is particularly encouraging given how great this film
looks and sounds in IMAX."
    "Michael Bay's innovative use of IMAX cameras has created what we believe
is a mind blowing cinematic experience for moviegoers, and it has already
generated an enormous buzz with moviegoers around the world," added Greg
Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. "We can't wait to
share Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen: The IMAX Experience with IMAX
audiences worldwide, which is more possible now thanks to the expanded IMAX
network, in addition to the skilled marketing and distribution teams at
Paramount."
