On June 24, the much-anticipated sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen arrives in theatres, and once again fans will have the chance to check out the massive action in IMAX theatres.
Directed by Michael Bay, and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Transformers 2 stars Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, and John Turturro, to name a few. With its big special effects, which Bay said will top the previous film, it is sure to be one of the biggest action films of the year.
Best of all, much like The Dark Knight, which shot several scenes specifically for IMAX, Transformers 2 also features specially-shot sequences for the IMAX theatres, while the rest of the film will appear in standard letterbox format.
“The extraordinary level of detail and intensity captured by the IMAX camera creates many exciting possibilities for us with this film,” said director Michael Bay. “IMAX’s all-encompassing format will take this story to a new level, and I am once again very excited to share The IMAX Experience with Transformers fans around the world.”
In the new film, Sam Witwicky, played by LaBeouf, starts seeing visions about the origins of the Transformers thanks to the tiny shard left after the destruction of the Allspark. Chased by the Decepticons, Sam is sent searching for a clue that predates the Egyptian pyramids.
