|Home: BigScreen Journal - "Where the Wild Things Are" to be Released in IMAX|
Warner Bros. Pictures and IMAX Corporation announced this week that Where the Wild Things Are will be released simultaneously to conventional and IMAX theaters when the movie opens on October 16, 2009.
The movie is based on the classic book by Maurice Sendak, which was a winner of the 1964 Caldecott Medal for "Most Distinguished Picture Book of the Year." It chronicles the timeless adventures of a young boy's imaginary journey to a land of "Wild Things."
The press release mentions that the movie will be remastered using the IMAX DMR technology to expand its picture and sound to be compatible with the IMAX and IMAX digital formats.
"We're excited to provide audiences and fans of such a beloved adventure the chance to experience it in IMAX," said Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. "The imagery and sound in IMAX will help further immerse audiences directly into the land of Wild Things and we look forward to sharing it with them."
According to the press release, as of March 31, 2009, there were 371 IMAX theatres (250 commercial, 121 institutional) operating in 43 countries.
