Penguins of Madagascar Goes IMAX


CG animated films, especially when done right, are perfect for IMAX screens. If you’re a fan of bright, vivid colors and wacky characters on HD screens as large as 72 feet, then Twentieth Century Fox’s recent announcement will be right up your alley.

According to the announcement, the studio has signed an agreement with IMAX Corporation, under which four of their upcoming films will be released in the immersive IMAX format in select international territories. The deal includes DreamWorks Animation’s Penguins of Madagascar, which is set to kick off internationally on Nov. 26; Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, launching on Dec. 4; Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb on Dec. 17; and EuropaCorp’s Taken 3 on Jan. 8. The films will be released in select IMAX theatres in countries throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.

“We are excited to bring these four distinctly entertaining films to IMAX fans internationally and encouraged by this deal as we continue to grow our relationship with Fox,” said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. “We believe these films are fantastic additions to our slate and hopefully a sign of more to come.”
