5 Reasons Why Skyfall Might Be The Best James Bond Film Ever
2. First To Be Released In IMAX Following in the footsteps of many of this summers biggest blockbusters, Skyfall will mark the debut appearance of Bond in the IMAX format. Although the film has not been shot using the bulky IMAX camera equipment it will still be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of the expected IMAX experience. Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum, Co-Chairman and Chief Executive Officers of MGM said;
It is fitting that with Skyfall marking the 50th Anniversary of the James Bond franchise, we celebrate in epic style and what could be more larger-than-life than IMAX joining the festivities.
With more and more cinemas being converted to house the giant IMAX screens and state-of-the-art sound equipment there has never been a better time to embrace the format. At the start of this month, Prometheus broke all records for pre-booked IMAX tickets but with The Dark Knight Rises and The Hobbit due to hit the format as well as Skyfall, expect that record to be broken several more times by the end of the year.
