Summit Entertainment and IMAX Corporation have announced that The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third film in the Twilight franchise, will hit IMAX theaters simultaneously with its conventional release on June 30, 2010.
“‘Twilight’ moviegoers will have a whole new way to experience this next installment of the series, with the enhanced image and sound quality of ‘The IMAX Experience’ putting them IN the movie,” said Richie Fay, Summit Entertainment’s President of Domestic Theatrical Distribution. “The IMAX release puts us on the event film calendar for 2010, and we’re very excited to work with IMAX to bring a new kind of film to the IMAX theatre network.”
“Our 2010 film slate continues to fill out with strong titles, and a film from this incredible franchise is a very welcome addition,” said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. “This title fills a valuable spot in our 2010 summer release window, and will no doubt thrill IMAX audiences.”
