The Man From U.N.C.L.E. channels all the glory of the 1960’s, and completely pulls you into another time period. “You really feel like you’re there,” shares Armie Hammer, who plays the dynamic KGB operative that joins forces with American spy Henry Cavill.
The highly anticipated The Man From U.N.C.L.E. hits IMAX® theaters this Friday, August 14!

Check out this special IMAX® trailer for the upcoming movie, Everest. The eerie and dangerous nature throughout the trailer sets the tone for what is yet to come. Everest is based on a true story of two climbing groups attempting to reach the top of Mount Everest. With the dangerous weather conditions implemented, the journey was a treacherous and enduring expedition.
Learning how to tactically jump off a historic Opera House on camera doesn’t just happen overnight. It appears Tom Cruise has met his match as his co-star Rebecca Ferguson, aka Ilsa Faust, takes her acting acrobatics to the limit. In Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Rebecca Ferguson shows that her time of preparation and training before filming was totally worth it.
Nuclear weapons and CIA agents aren’t the only thing that will have audiences glued to the screen - The Man From U.N.C.L.E features a unique collection of looks from the 1960’s. Suits, dresses, glasses and ties put a stylish twist on this action-packed flick.
Once again, Tom Cruise has taken his daring stunts to new heights, this time - literally! In Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, he grapples onto a massive Airbus A400M and is carried 5,000 feet into the air! After over 30 years of stunt training, Tom Cruise still brings all the action and suspense to the screen by taking his dangerous maneuvers to the next level.
An exclusive IMAX® sneak peek of Everest will be playing before IMAX showings of Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation beginning Friday, July 31. The movie is based on two expedition groups’ treacherous journey up the highest peak in the world. Written after the true 1996 Mount Everest events, these groups face trying challenges and weather obstacles as they do their best to survive.
The Mission: Impossible film series is probably best known for the insanely epic and death defying stunts done by Tom Cruise who plays Ethan Hunt. One of the lesser known facts is that daredevil, Tom Cruise, does many of his own stunts, and has spent years training. In every movie we see Ethan Hunt doing the impossible; catching some major air in a speeding car, hanging off a cliff, and most recently hanging on the side of a plane during take-off.

The Water Diviner premiere was recently held at the TCL Chinese IMAX® theatre in Hollywood. We were able to catch up with a few of the film’s stars and producers to hear what they had to say about the film in IMAX®.
The dinosaurs are back!
In 1993 we were first introduced to the exotic world of Jurassic Park. Enormous dinosaurs and a gorgeous tropical jungle were just the first things to grab our attention and pull us into the series. The film presented us with an island parents would want to relax on and kids were dying to explore.
More than two decades after the film’s initial release we’re still captivated by these extinct creatures and the idea of them coming back to life. Ok, so maybe we wouldn’t want them around all the time but having them close enough for a visit every now and then would be pretty awesome. As unrealistic as it may be the idea recaptured our curiosity, leaving us eager to learn more about these gigantic beasts and visit the epic Jurassic World Park.
