IMAX and Paramount Pictures strengthen partnership with five-pic pact

April 16, 2013

Las Vegas—IMAX Corp. and Paramount Pictures, a division of Viacom, have announced an agreement to release five of Paramount Pictures’ forthcoming films in the immersive IMAX format under an extension of the companies’ long-running partnership.

The arrangement features some of Paramount’s most highly anticipated tentpole films, including Michael Bay's Transformers 4 (June 2014), as well as its co-production of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar (November 2014), plus three titles yet to be announced.

Nolan and Bay will capture material and key sequences of their 2014 releases using 70mm IMAX cameras. These specific sequences, which will expand to fill more of the screen exclusively in IMAX, will deliver unprecedented crispness and clarity and a truly immersive experience for moviegoers, notes Rob Moore, vice chairman of Paramount Pictures.

“IMAX is among the greatest ways to experience a movie,” said Moore. “Working with today's top filmmakers, we look forward to bringing audiences the most exciting new movies with the very best presentation for years to come.”

“We’re excited to build on our longtime partnership with Paramount Pictures, which has been fantastic at incorporating IMAX differentiation and providing moviegoers with the best way to experience the biggest movies," said Richard L. Gelfond, CEO of IMAX. “This agreement furthers our strategy of anchoring our slate with blockbuster films by today’s leading directors.”

“IMAX continues to have a deep appreciation for the consistently innovative Paramount Pictures team as well as these incredible filmmakers, who are among the most talented directors working in the industry,” said Greg Foster, chairman and president of IMAX Entertainment. “We’re thrilled and honored to once again team up with our longtime partners Christopher Nolan and Michael Bay. We can’t wait to showcase their vision to IMAX fans around the world.”
