Good news 007 fans! For the first time ever, you’ll be able to experience SKYFALL™, the 23rd installment of the Bond franchise, one day early in IMAX on November 8th.
If you’re one of those eager fans who will be the first in line to see the film in IMAX, it’ll be a completely unique experience. This is because the IMAX presentation of SKYFALL will be specially formatted to feature a larger aspect ratio than the conventional release for the entirety of the film.
The filmmakers worked with the IMAX team in the post-production process to increase the aspect ratio of the film and designed the IMAX presentation of SKYFALL to allow audiences to see up to 26% more of the originally captured image.
