The The film will also appear on 19 IMAX screens in the UK and France. “With two weeks to go, we have seen substantial midnight sellouts in IMAX theatres across the country leading exhibitors to begin offering 3 AM shows to meet demand,” Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment, said in a release.
