“For more than a decade, IMAX has helped filmmakers take fans across the Marvel Cinematic Universe in theaters, and now that epic journey crosses into a new world: the home,” said Rich Gelfond, CEO of IMAX, in a statement. “IMAX, Disney, and Marvel Studios are giving the fans what they want: the most immersive viewing experience throughout the life of a Marvel Studios film, from exclusive theatrical release to the library at-home where they can now watch the Avengers assemble with more picture than ever before.”
With IMAX enhanced, Disney+ has become the first major streaming service to implement the IMAX screening experience for at-home viewers. In the future, the streamer aims to further optimize filmmakers’ creative intent by delivering even more advanced audio and visual technology, including IMAX signature sound by DTS.
Elsewhere in entertainment, Marvel’s Eternals has topped the box office with $71 million USD.
