After a trailer and Super Bowl spot, it’s pretty fair to say fans are lukewarm on Alan Taylor‘s Terminator Genisys. We’re intrigued by the casting and some of the ideas teased in these spots, but the ultimate execution is a huge question mark. Well, Thursday, two pieces of news broke which are both on the encouraging side.
First up, Paramount and IMAX have announced that Genisys will be released in IMAX when it hits theaters on July 1. That’s not a guarantee of quality, but it’s good news for fans of the franchise who want to see the new film in the biggest format possible.
Second, an Arnold Schwarzenegger fansite posted two Terminator Genisys script reviews, both of which are positive. They’re spoiler free too, so no worries there, and you can read excerpts below. Read More »

Fans who want one final chance to see Christopher Nolan‘s latest film on the big screen will get that this weekend. Paramount is releasing the multiple Oscar-nominee Interstellar to select AMC IMAX Theaters on February 21. The screenings will take place at 3 p.m. local time and feature “more than 12 minutes of never-before-seen exclusive behind-the-scenes content.” That’s pretty enticing, and this will be probably your last-ever chance to see the film in IMAX.

Ethan Hunt’s next jet-setting, death-defying international adventure will be just as big as his last one. Paramount and IMAX announced today that Mission: Impossible 5 will play in IMAX when it hits theaters July 31. Because if Tom Cruise is going to strap himself to a plane at 5,000 feet, he’s gonna make damn sure we can drink in every little detail.

Katniss is going big for her final blowout. Lionsgate has announced that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 will be released this fall in IMAX and IMAX 3D, as well as plain old normal-sized-screen 2D.
That makes The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 the first Hunger Games film to open in 3D in the U.S. (Mockingjay, Part 1 played in 3D in China.) The news also brings the franchise back to the IMAX format. The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire both hit the jumbo screens, but IMAX opted to show Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar over The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 last year.

For years — since before the release of The Tree of Life — we’ve heard about Terrence Malick‘s planned documentary film Voyage of Time, to be released in full IMAX format. But most of what we’ve heard about the film is that it is coming eventually, with little in the way of actual specifics. We know Brad Pitt narrates the film, and that it will explore the full span of time, and that’s about it. Now the Malick IMAX documentary Voyage of Time has been formally announced, and in fact there are two official versions, one for IMAX distribution, and one for regular theaters. More details are below. Read More »
