has made a deal with Amazon
for their upcoming movie The Aeronauts
, starring Eddie Redmayne
and Felicity Jones
to be released in IMAX theatres. IMDb
describes the film as follows: “Pilot Amelia Wren and scientist James Glaisher find themselves in an epic fight for survival while attempting to make discoveries in a hot air balloon.” The movie looks and sounds as though it will be quite grand, so it makes sense that IMAX is interested in seeing it on their gigantic screens.
In an interview at Cannes this week, IMAX CEO Rich Gelfond had this to say about the partnership:
“For us it’s more content, and if the content is what I call ‘Imax
-worthy,’ meaning it can be a wonderful experience that we can enhance and people across cultures can enjoy…then we want to be involved and to do it, with the [caveat being] as long as it respects the windows.
