If you like to soak up your fantasy and sci-fi in 70mm magnificence, Warner Bros. has good news for you... and your eyeballs. The Hollywood studio has announced a 20-movie extension to its worldwide deal with IMAX that will bring its biggest properties to the format over the next three years.

Exciting tidings when you consider that Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim - robots vs monsters! - and Alfonso Cuarón's space-set Gravity - Sandra Bullock and George Clooney vs the vast expanse of space - are cued up for 2013.

"Together with IMAX and our exhibitor partners, we have built a unique, incremental distribution platform over the last ten years,” explained Dan Fellman, the studio's head of domestic distribution. "We are excited to continue this tradition and offer these films to audiences in the most premium of moviegoing experiences."

Other Warner films to get IMAX release next year are Jack The Giant Slayer, Man Of Steel, 300: Rise Of An Empire, Seventh Son, and The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug in December. Smaug in IMAX: now there's a thing.

RE: When you say 70mm....
I'm a movie maker. Shooting on 70mm is the most impractical thing... ever. The cameras are unwieldy, (they get in the way of telling the story) the stock is outrageously expensive, there is a very short amount of time which you can roll for (the reason being that the stock is just enormous) and above all, ticket prices put most people off. Therefore, 95/96 percent of people are going to watch a 35 print anyway. Maybe in the future. More

When you say 70mm....
You say landing in 70mm but do you just actually mean post converted from 35mm or digital to be displayed on an IMAX screen? Like 99% of all IMAX runs. These are not native IMAX films that were shot using 70mm stock. Other than perhaps Gravity, there is not a single film there I would not have expected to see on the upcoming IMAX release slate. But do any of these actually contain any IMAX footage whatsoever? Some brave soul just needs to take the jump and film an entire feature in this fo More
