Can you begin to imagine what a person would be able to do with the use of 100% of their brain? No, because you are only capable of using 10% which makes it impossible to even fathom the intensity you will experience when Lucy arrives to IMAX® international theatres beginning August 8.
Lucy, the new thriller from acclaimed filmmaker Luc Besson that stars Scarlett Johansson and Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman, will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX® format with select scenes captured using IMAX® cameras. Those sequences filmed with the extremely high-resolution cameras will add to the explosive action and scope of the film as seen best in IMAX theaters.
While living in Taipei, Lucy is forced into being a drug mule for a gang. The repercussions of the leaked drugs that were placed inside of her body for transport, allows her to access superhuman abilities. Quickly, her powers begin to accelerate as Lucy and her ally, Professor Norman, investigate the possibilities of her using her brain to its full capacity.

As many of us are taking time to commemorate the independence of our great nation, we couldn’t think of a better opportunity to celebrate…well…Chris Pratt…or we like to refer to him as Chrisy P.
We have now deemed August 1st a new national (well you know) holiday. We’d like to introduce Guardians Day featuring Chris Pratt. So it’s cool that you’re celebrating Independence Day but leave a little energy leftover for the next big thing coming Aug. 1 when Guardians of the Galaxy hits IMAX® 3D theatres.
To make sure you understand its importance we pulled together these GIFs to show you just how AMAZING Chrisy P can be.

“On a big scale movie you want to shoot with a big scale format and there’s just nothing like that experience” – Transformers: Age of Extinction Director/Executive Producer Michael Bay
Transformers: Age of Extinction is the first feature film to use the high-resolution IMAX® 3D Digital Camera. The Director Michael Bay and the production team was able to capture major action sequences of the film – including chase scenes and helicopter shots – in high-resolution 3D in a way that was previously impossible thanks to the compact size of the new cameras.
Exclusively in IMAX® theatres, sequences filmed with the camera will expand to fill more of the IMAX screen and provide moviegoers with even greater scope, breathtaking image quality and earth-shattering 3D for a truly immersive experience. Click here to be the first to see Transformers: Age of Extinction in IMAX® theatres.
