By IMAX auf Februar 14, 2013

This Valentine’s Day you’re in for a treat much sweeter than chocolate. A Good Day To Die Hard arrives in IMAX® Theatres on February 14 and we can’t think of a better place to be this V-Day than on an action-packed adventure with Bruce Willis and tickets are on sale now!

You may be wondering what would be worth opting out of a couples massage, dinner at that swanky new restaurant or whispering sweet nothings in the ear of the one you love.  Well we’ve got the deets on the making of Die Hard 5 and we’ve found some PRETTY cool things that are worth ditching your V-Day plans.

It has been 25 years since the original Die Hard where the cinematic hero John McClane was born. Now Bruce Willis is back in his iconic role as a Brooklyn police detective, but this time he’ll find himself in the midst of deadly corruption and political vendetta in Russia. After finding out that his estranged son has been arrested in Moscow, McClane begins his mission in search for answers and finds out more than he expected. His son Jack, played by Jai Courtney, is far from being a criminal but is an undercover CIA operative. This father/son combo is packing some serious heat. Lesen Sie mehr

IMAX 101: DMR (Video)

By IMAX auf Januar 30, 2013

When seeing a movie in an IMAX® theatre, it’s like seeing a different movie altogether. Everything from the movie itself to the theatre’s technology and design has been developed and customized to make you believe you’re part of the action. One of the key ingredients to creating The IMAX Experience® is IMAX® DMR, or digital re-mastering.

There are two ways to create an IMAX movie. It can either be captured with the extremely high resolution IMAX® cameras or go through IMAX’s proprietary DMR process to enhance the film’s image and audio.

So what exactly does IMAX’s DMR process entail? Check out our latest IMAX 101 featuring DMR technology to find out: Lesen Sie mehr
