ALL YOU NEED IS KILL and The Wachowski Siblings’ JUPITER ASCENDING Set for 3D; Wally Pfister’s TRANSCENDENCE Confirmed for IMAX

     November 15, 2012


Earlier today, IMAX announced that it had signed a 20-picture deal with Warner Bros., revealing a few upcoming IMAX releases in the process.  Now the large-format company has updated its official site with a few interesting additions that seem to confirm a couple of 3D releases and another IMAX release.  Briefly:

  • All You Need Is Kill – The Doug Liman-directed sci-fi action film starring Tom Cruise will be released in 3D, presumably through a post-conversion.
  • Jupiter AscendingLana and Andy Wachowski will apparently be making their 3D debut with the upcoming sci-fi film starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis.
  • TranscendenceDark Knight and Inception cinematographer Wally Pfister’s directorial debut will, unsurprisingly, be released in the IMAX format.

Hit the jump for more details.

lana-andy-wachowski-jupiter-ascending-3dOver at the official IMAX website, a list of upcoming releases broke the news that All You Need Is Kill and Jupiter Ascending were going 3D, while Transcendance would be released in IMAX.  Filming is currently underway on All You Need Is Kill and we haven’t heard anything about Liman shooting the pic in native 3D so one assumes it will be post-converted.  Given that the effects-heavy actioner doesn’t get released until March of 2014, there’s plenty of time to perform a quality conversion on that one.

Most interestingly, though, is the fact that the technologically-inclined Wachowski duo is planning 3D for Jupiter AscendingThe plot is rumored to be about a poor Russian immigrant (Kunis) who scrubs toilets for a living, but then she discovers she “possesses the same perfect genetic makeup as the Queen of the Universe and is therefore a threat to her otherwise immortal rule.”  Tatum previously teased that the Cloud Atlas filmmakers are going to “change the game again,” and I’m eager to see what they can do with the 3D format.

The Transcendence news isn’t really a surprise, as Pfister has worked closely with Christopher Nolan as his cinematographer for years and the two are incredibly fond of shooting in the IMAX format.  The site doesn’t specify, but it’s all but guaranteed that Pfister will also be filming Transcendence with IMAX cameras.  That sci-fi film will star Johnny Depp and is being billed as 2001: A Space Odyssey meets Inception.
