ALFONSO CUARÓN’S GRAVITY™ TO BE RE-RELEASED IN IMAX® 3D THEATRES STARTING JAN. 31

Nominated for 10 Academy Awards®, Including Best Picture, Acclaimed Visual Spectacle Returns to IMAX 3D Theatres Across North America

LOS ANGELES – Jan. 16, 2014 – IMAX Corporation (NYSE:IMAX; TSX:IMX) and Warner Bros. Pictures, a division of Time Warner Inc. (NYSE:TWX), today announced that Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity™, one of the most popular films ever offered in IMAX® 3D, will be returning to domestic IMAX theatres starting Jan. 31.

Cuarón’s spectacular sci-fi thriller, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, has been a hit with audiences and critics alike, grossing nearly $700 million at the global box office, while receiving 10 Academy Award® nominations including Best Picture. Demand for the film – which was also nominated for four Golden Globes, with Cuarón winning Best Director – has been particularly high in IMAX 3D. Opening Oct. 4, Gravity was the highest-grossing IMAX release of 2013, both domestically and globally. It’s also the 3rd most popular IMAX DMR® film of all time worldwide.

“Congratulations to Alfonso, David Heyman and Warner Bros. on today’s Academy Award nominations. We’re delighted with the overwhelming success of Gravity and the continued demand we’re seeing from moviegoers, both domestically and around the world, to bring it back in IMAX,” said Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. “Word of mouth has been tremendous, with fans and critics demanding that Gravity must be experienced in the most immersive way possible. The film’s ample awards consideration has further cemented its place in cinema history, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer it again.”

The IMAX release of Gravity has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

    Enough with this pos movie already, we get it, it has great visual effects!
    Now let’s wait for a real movie to make good use of that technology.

    • HeSaidSheSaidReviewSite

      Agreed. It was really bad. Awesome effects, bad movie. If Cuaron wasn’t involved, it wouldn’t have been hyped up the way it was.

        I can’t agree enough! The script is absolutely the worst thing about it. Even Discovery Channel wouldn’t air this crap. Beautiful visuals, but its pretty much a Lifetime channel movie script, and somehow it got a $100 million dollar budget (read that again!) What a spectacular gross waste of money, especially when mostly ALL of it was used for just visuals, the camera technology and the actor and director’s paychecks. Blegh. And to think David Heyman of Harry Potter calibur was involved. Pity.

    Saw it 3 times during it’s initial release. Still haven’t crossed out a trip back up. Gravity is a beautiful film (and not only visually).

    • Armand

      Agreed, I get tired of people using the “Avatar” rationale with Gravity. No, Gravity is a movie that finally came along and was not only technically remarkable but also artistically, beautiful as you say

        Its a great visual thrill ride- there isn’t anything to it beyond that- i enjoyed the ride but when I tried to watch it again on a 2D tv – it wasn’t nearly as interesting. It will be intriguing to see how this holds up on home media. 2001 holds up amazingly well but 2001 has way more going on with it than visuals.

      • RIC

        I agree that it wont hold up as well in home theaters but in all honesty I never plan to watch it on anything but the silver screen. It was an experience only the best theaters in the country could fully deliver and I never want to watch it any other way. It’s more of an experience than a traditional film can offer and that’s what made it truly special.

        It is a movie about HUMANITY, that’s what most don’t get. Both the gender and the traits of it that are in us. It is one of the best Movies of the year.

      • cezar211091 .

        true,it’s the most poetic film set in space that i’ve seen since 2001
