When a movie opens to bigger box office returns that the Dark freaking Knight, the producers are bound to take the film a notch higher. It turns out 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' will release in both conventional theaters and in IMAX worldwide on June 30, 2010.
And that means 'Eclipse' will hit theaters in India the same day too, considering its a super wide IMAX release. You must know that 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' was shot using regular cameras. IMAX corp are going to digitally re-master the footage with IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology. So don't expect an 'Avatar' or 'The Dark Knight' like experience (those films were shot using IMAX cameras, and were made specifically for IMAX screens).
It is clever marketing from Summit Entertainment, as fans (and there are many) will have to pay more to watch 'Eclipse' in IMAX. We won't be surprised if the film makes 1.5 times more money than 'New Moon' during its opening weekend. Its actually a shame that none of the footage was shot with genuine IMAX cameras. However the final chapter 'Breaking Dawn' is still to be filmed, maybe they will shoot in IMAX 3D, and twi-hards will have a lot of fun what with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner performing two inches from your face.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is directed by David Slade. The film stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Xavier Samuel, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jodelle Ferland, Jack Huston, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Ashley Greene, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Billy Burke and Kirsten Prout. Bryce Dallas Howard has replaced Rachel LeFevre as Victoria after the latter stated scheduling conflicts.
Here is an excerpt from the press release by Summit: IMAX Corporation (NASDAQ: IMAX; TSX: IMX) and Summit Entertainment announced today that The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third film in the studio's Twilight franchise, will be released to IMAX theatres simultaneously with the film's launch on June 30, 2010. Twilight moviegoers will have a whole new way to experience this next installment of the series, with the enhanced image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience putting them IN the movie," said Richie Fay, Summit Entertainment's President of Domestic Theatrical Distribution. "The IMAX release puts us on the event film calendar for 2010, and we're very excited to work with IMAX to bring a new kind of film to the IMAX theatre network.
In The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob - knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.
