Warner Bros. Pictures has agreed to add “up to” 12 upcoming films including Kong: Skull Island and The LEGO Batman Movie to the releases that will appear on Imax, the companies announced this morning.
“This extension includes titles from some of the industry’s most acclaimed filmmakers, such as our friends Christopher Nolan, Steven Spielberg, David Ellison, David Heyman and David Yates,” Imax Entertainment CEO Greg Foster says. “The WB/Imax pairing has yielded billions of dollars in box office and has become synonymous with blockbuster entertainment around the globe.”
Each of the WB releases will be digitally re-mastered to fulfill Imax’s technical requirements.
In addition to Kong and LEGO Batman, titles to appear on Imax as part of the deal include Warner’s sequel to Godzilla, Blade Runner 2049 (domestic only), Tomb Raider, Ready Player One, Minecraft, Geostorm, and a sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
The companies previously announced that Justice League, Wonder Woman, and other titles featuring DC Comics characters will show on Imax screens.
