Thanks to all of the buzz that has been going around thanks to the run up to the Academy Awards, Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity is set to return to 2D theaters nationwide tomorrow. While this is certainly great news, as Gravity is a film that deserves to be appreciated in any format, the truth is that 2D in a normal theater is not the best way to watch the movie. In the case of this particular sci-fi opera you want to see it on the biggest screen imaginable and with as many dimensions as you can get your hands on. Thankfully Warner Bros. and IMAX are bringing that experience back.
The studio and the theater company joined together today to issue a press release announcing that starting January 31st Gravity will be heading back into domestic IMAX theaters. The news comes in celebration of the film's 10 Academy Award nominations - including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress - of which Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp, could not be more proud. Said the executive in a statement,
Re-releases like this are always great because they can give people a chance to see titles that they may have missed during the first theatrical run, but Gravity is a special case. Even if you saw Gravity back when it was out in October, you should make a point of trying to see it again. After all, the material demands the screen size, and in the future IMAX screenings will be much less available. Take the opportunity when it presents itself.
Gravity was a favorite amongst us here at Cinema Blend, landing on three of our four Top 10 lists, and we couldn't be more excited for all the recognition its received by the industry. Relive some of the big screen magic with a couple trailers below:
