Prince of Persia to Hit International IMAX Theaters


IMAX Corporation announced today that the epic action-adventure Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, from Jerry Bruckheimer Films, directed by Mike Newell and starring Jake Gyllenhaal, will be released to IMAX theaters internationally with the film’s wide release on May 28, 2010.

The film’s limited international IMAX release will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with IMAX DMR technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

“Once again our expanded network of IMAX locations is enabling us to offer moviegoers around the world more compelling content ideally suited to The IMAX Experience,” said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. “The success of our international theatre network is a key component of our growth, and we are delighted to secure this highly anticipated summer title for our international exhibitor partners.”

“We’re revved up that moviegoers throughout our international territories will have the opportunity to experience this epic adventure in IMAX theatres,” added Greg Foster, Chairman and President, IMAX Filmed Entertainment. “Walt Disney Pictures is continuing to add blockbuster releases to our growing slate, and it’s a particular treat with ‘Prince of Persia’ as it kicks off our relationship with hit maker Jerry Bruckheimer.”
