One of the Biggest Movies of 2007 Gets Digitally Enhanced into The IMAX Experience®

LOS ANGELES, CA, August 21, 2007 -- IMAX Corporation, DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures announced today that “TRANSFORMERS,” one of the highest grossing movies of the year, will be digitally re-mastered into IMAX’s immersive format and released to IMAX® theatres on September 21.

Wechsler. “The images and sound in ‘TRANSFORMERS’ are perfectly suited to The IMAX Experience and we are very excited to share the IMAX version with the film’s present and future fans.”

I look forward to this!

Just to bad this isn't for next summer, by then I'll have an IMAX within walking distance, and it would be a nice threat to resee it then.

Still, I'm not complaining.

Interesting that they talk about the fall DVD release. I guess this basically confirms the October 16 date.

It's great to see that it's now official. However, the press release doesn't mention anything about the new footage we heard about before. I hope that wasn't just wishful thinking on someone's part. Oh, well. I'll still see it in IMAX regardless.

Sounds good to me. I have an IMAX across the river in NYC so not too bad. Maybe this time they'll get Brawl's name right.

Proof read my friend. :lol:
I'm gonna see it, I have an IMAX close by here in Baltimore.
It'd be cool to see it in 3D, but that'd be mondo expensive for Paramount.

I'll be curious to see if with the limited number of IMAX theaters is they will be enough interest to boost TF's 07 tally above that of Shrek the Third. It would need to add just over $13 million to get it past Shrek to lay claim to 2nd highest US grossing film of 2007.
