Paramount and IMAX announced an agreement on Monday to release five of the studio’s upcoming features in the IMAX format. Two of them, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and Michael Bay’s Transformers 4, will include key scenes shot with IMAX cameras on 65mm film, the companies said in their announcement. “These specific sequences,” they observed, “which will expand to fill more of the screen exclusively in IMAX, will deliver unprecedented crispness and clarity and a truly immersive experience for moviegoers.” The companies did not provide any information about the other three films that will be released in the big-screen format. However, IMAX chief Richard Gelfond commented, “This agreement furthers our strategy of anchoring our slate with blockbuster films by today’s leading directors.”
