IMAX agrees to distribute “Number Four,” Hugh Jackman’s “Real Steel”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: There’s no question movies are getting bigger. This morning’s story confirms it.

Imax Corp. announced today that it has entered an agreement to release two pictures — “I Am Number Four” and “Real Steel” – in 2011 on digital Imax screens as part of a day-and-date pact with DreamWorks Studios and The Walt Disney Studios. Both film will be released under the Touchstone banner.

“The inclusion of two live-action DreamWorks titles in our 2011 slate enables us to expand the range of content available to Imax theatres and extend our brand deeper into our growing 18-34 audience segment,” Imax CEO Richard L. Gelfond said in a statement, according to THR.

“I Am Number Four,” directed by D.J. Caruso (“Eagle Eye”), resembles the video game “inFamous,” follows an electrically charged teenager (Alex Pettyfer) who is hunted by ruthless enemies. It co-stars Timothy Olyphant and Dianna Agron, and opens everywhere on Feb. 18.

We’ll have to wait longer for Shawn Levy’s “Real Steel,” which stars Hugh Jackman as a former boxer who now trains robotic boxers. It will be in theaters on Oct. 7, 2011.
