Paramount inks four-picture deal with IMAX

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Big news from Paramount Studios this morning … literally and figuratively.

The studio announced an agreement with IMAX Corporation to release four of the studio’s tentpole releases in 2011. The films will open day-and-date in IMAX theaters worldwide.

The tentpole titles are:
– J.J. Abrams’ “Super 8”
– Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”
– Brad Bird’s “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol”
– Steven Spielberg’s “The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn”

Two of those, “Transformers” and “Tintin,” both originally shot in 3D and will be digitally re-mastered into IMAX’s format for presentation in IMAX 3D.

“Consumer demand for The IMAX Experience has never been higher,” said Rob Moore, Vice Chairman of Paramount Pictures. “Coupled with the rising popularity of the IMAX brand, the growing number of IMAX screens and the increased interest from our top filmmakers to have their movies offered in this format, IMAX is and continues to be a key part of our release strategy.”

“Paramount Pictures consistently delivers top-quality, highly entertaining films that audiences love to see in IMAX, and with these new titles, we believe our 2011 lineup is on its way to becoming the most robust slate we’ve ever had,” said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. “Our growing worldwide network will enable even more movie fans to experience their favorite films in the best possible way.”

“Super 8” will be released on June 10. “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” will be released on July 1. “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” will be released on Dec. 16. And “The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn” will be released on Dec. 28.
