We occasionally see IMAX film presentations in which the film’s aspect ratio changes from scene to scene. Typically this is due to a shift between footage shot on digital or 35mm film and native IMAX footage. So we’ve seen the ratio shift in films like Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and The Dark Knight Rises. Outside the IMAX space, we’ve also seen the aspect ratio shift used for purely artistic purposes, as in recent films The Grand Budapest Hotel and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Now, Guardians of the Galaxy will fit somewhere in between those practices. Director James Gunn has revealed that IMAX 3D presentations of the film will feature shifting aspect ratios, “in a way that makes the experience even fuller and more encompassing.” Read his note below. Read More »

Legendary Pictures in conjunction with Warner Bros have released a new international trailer for Godzilla. The Godzilla Japanese trailer gives us a better look at the Japanese backstory of the creature, focusing a bit more on Ken Watanabe’s character, as well as the same soft yet tense building ominous score and series of “take my money now” teasing action sequence edits we’ve come to expect from this movie’s marketing campaign. You can watch the Godzilla Japanese trailer embedded after the jump.
IMAX has released an exclusive illustrated Godzilla IMAX poster for the film. No word on if this is poster will be given out at IMAX theaters as part of the company’s awesome Fanfix initiative, or if this is just another one-sheet for the film.
