Something tells me that the headline above should really read “300 to hit IMAX – Mass Orgy expected afterwards!” Zach Snyder’s upcoming release 300, which is based on the graphic novel by Frank Miller, is not only one of the highly anticipated films of 2007 (see my “Most Anticipated Films of 2007” list, due out next week), but it seems to be one of the most groundbreaking visual works of the last say, ten years. Or at least that is how things look based on the trailer.
So now, in order to fully blow our collective mind with an orgasmic level of visuals and immense loads of badassery, the folks at Warner Brothers (who are getting smarter and smarter by the day) have decided to also release 300 in IMAX to coincide the standard release on March 9, 2007. Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution at WB said of the news: “Warner Bros. Pictures and the filmmakers are very excited to bring this unique cinematic experience to both conventional and IMAX theatres this spring. The immersive IMAX Experience will transform this film, offering audiences an alternative way to view this highly-charged picture.”
Highly charged? How about “unbelievably intense” or “action fanboy wet dream”? That is how I would have described it, but then again, I am not the President of Domestic Distribution for Warner Brothers. I digress.
