Marking Avengers: Infinity War’s status as the first Hollywood film to be shot entirely with IMAX cameras, IMAX has released a new video featurette which takes fans on a larger-than-life look back at the Marvel films that have exhilarated moviegoers so far.
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo designed Avengers: Infinity War for IMAX.
In addition to it being filmed entirely using IMAX cameras, the movie will be presented in IMAX’s expanded 1.9:1 aspect ratio. Only in IMAX cinemas will the movie expand vertically to show up to 26% more of the image than standard cinemas – providing IMAX fans with even greater scope and immersion.
The ALEXA IMAX 65mm camera is a next-generation revolutionary 2D digital camera developed through a partnership between ARRI and IMAX for use by today’s leading filmmakers working in the IMAX® format.
The camera, when combined with IMAX’s digital re-mastering process, delivers the highest level of digital image capture and playback resulting in stunning lifelike images with pristine clarity, incredibly fine detail, vivid colors and a higher dynamic range for superior contrast.
This camera is no stranger to the world of superheroes as it was first used by the Russo Brothers to shoot the airport battle sequence of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, released in May 2016.
