INTERSTELLAR Returning to IMAX Theaters for One More Showing; Will Contain Over 12 Minutes of Behind-the-Scenes Footage

     February 16, 2015


I don’t know what kind of a shelf life Interstellar will have on Blu-ray/DVD.  It’s strongest asset is its massive scope, and if you missed it in theaters, you’re going to have one more chance at catching the film the way it was meant to be seen.

AMC will be showing An Encore of Interstellar: The IMAX Experience at 3pm local time this Saturday.  In addition to showing Interstellar for what will likely be its last IMAX appearance for quite some time (I expect we’d see Gravity return to IMAX before Interstellar), the “Encore” will also include over 12 minutes of exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.  If they look at the mixing of the film, I assume it will be a shot of someone spilling soda on a soundboard.
