Millions will be headed to movie theaters this weekend to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Before the movie starts, trailers for some of the biggest blockbusters of 2017 will be played, but at select locations, audiences will be treated to a 5-minute prologue from Christopher Nolan‘s upcoming World War II drama Dunkirk.
Since most of Dunkirk was shot on 65mm IMAX cameras, Christopher Nolan is making this prologue only available in select IMAX theaters so it’s seen in the best format possible. If you’re not sure if your local IMAX theater is worthy of this honor, a full list of theaters playing the prologue around the world has been made available online.

Sadly, nowadays when a movie hits the IMAX screen, it’s usually also in 3D by default. Very rarely are there IMAX screens showing a movie in 2D. However, in the case of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, there will be a very small amount of theaters not only showing the movie in IMAX 2D, but with a 70mm projection as well.

Fans of the Transformers franchise have been waiting to see the first footage from Transformers: The Last Knight ever since cameras started rolling earlier this year.

We’re just a few days out from seeing what Marvel Studios has to offer with their latest entry in the Marvel cinematic universe, Doctor Strange. So far the early buzz has been mostly positive with plenty of praise surrounding the visuals and action of the movie, despite the fact that the movie does hit some of the tired tropes of the origin story and introduces a character not wholly dissimilar from Robert Downey Jr.’s take on Tony Stark.
At the very least, we’re getting the beginning of a new Marvel franchise that brings us into a completely different realm of the Marvel cinematic universe. Helping with that is the IMAX 3D format that allows trippy, mystical visuals to come to life in a big way. Check out a new Doctor Strange IMAX featurette after the jump to see what we’re talking about. Read More »

IMAX and Warner Bros have provided us with the countdown to Suicide Squad to exclusively premiere on /Film. I still think the IMAX countdown is one of the best demos of 3D and surround sound in theaters today, and as you probably know, over the last couple years IMAX has been customizing their countdown pre-show video for some of the bigger movie blockbusters. They first did this with Godzilla in 2014 which included the iconic Godzilla roar over the IMAX logo. IMAX received a great fan reception to this and have experimented with it on a few other films such as Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and Furious 7. The latest customized IMAX countdown video was created for Suicide Squad, which hits theaters on August 5th 2016. But you don’t have to wait until then to see the countdown. Hit the jump and check it out right now.
