Columbia Pictures and the IMAX Corporation have today announced that the upcoming superhero sequel, "Spider-Man 4," is coming to IMAX theaters on May 5th, 2011, along with being released worldwide in regular size theaters. The film will be shot regularly, and then digitally remastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience.
This comes as no surprise to anyone, as both "Spider-Man 2" and "Spider-Man 3" were released in IMAX. The difference with Spider-Man 4’s release is that it will have far more IMAX theaters to play in, giving more audiences the chance to experience their favorite web-shooting superhero on the gigantic screen.
"The last two 'Spider-Man' releases have been available in IMAX theaters, and we're very much looking forward to our return to a wider IMAX theatre network with this exciting new chapter in the continuing adventures of Spider-Man," said Rory Bruer, President, Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures Releasing. "The addition of so many new IMAX locations will give even more fans of Spider-Man an opportunity to experience the action and adventure in a unique way."
