FOX’s next “X-MEN” installment will be made available in IMAX 3D this May. The IMAX Corporation and Twentieth Century Fox, a division of 21st Century Fox, announced today that “X-Men: Apocalypse” will be digitally re-mastered into the popular 3D format and released into IMAX theaters across the globe starting on May 18, 2016.
X-Men: Apocalypse — which reunites Singer with the all-star cast of the global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, along with franchise newcomers Oscar Isaac and Olivia Munn — will be released in more than 50 overseas IMAX markets, including such major territories as Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Russia, Taiwan, South Korea and the U.K.
“After the record-setting worldwide success of Deadpool earlier this year, we are thrilled to keep the momentum going with our partners at Fox by offering overseas movie-goers the opportunity to see X-Men: Apocalypse — the most thrilling installment yet of this global and iconic franchise — in IMAX 3D,” said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment.
The IMAX 3D release of X-Men: Apocalypse will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology.
