It seems that someone at Paramount watched The Dark Knight Rises in IMAX and went “HOLY SHIT. We need something like this.” but since they don’t have any good movies in the pipeline (with their DreamWorks cash cow expiring soon and their Daredevil gig about to go up in smoke), they figured why not re-release something good, and VOILA: Steven Spielberg and George Lucas’ classic adventure Raiders of the Lost Ark gets a special one week release in select IMAX theaters starting in September 7, 2012.
The IMAX version of Raiders of the Lost Ark has undergone a complete restoration in order to take advantage of IMAX’s capabilities, as well as to prepare it for the upcoming debut in Blu-Ray format.
“When I saw the stunning quality of the picture and heard the enhanced sound in an IMAX theatre, I was quite literally blown away and hope that audiences will enjoy the experience as much as I did,” said Steven Spielberg.
Tickets and a list of participating theatres are available starting today at www.imax.com.
