Warner Bros. to release six movies in ScreenX format in 2019
Warner Bros. has announced that six titles this year will be released globally in the SceenX format, which immerses viewers a 270-degree viewing format. According to The Hollywood Reporter, only three titles have been announced: Shazam! on April 5, The Curse of La Llorna on April 19, and Godzilla: King of the Monsterson May 31. The other three titles will be announced in the coming months.
ScreenX, developed by South Korean cinema technology company CJ 4DPLEX, is a multi-projection technology that gives audiences a panoramic view of what’s happening on screen, allowing them to feel like they’re ‘inside’ the movie.
“Warner Bros. Pictures continues to be a strong supporter and partner of the ScreenX cinematic experience, and we are beyond excited to grow that partnership with a release of six titles from their upcoming film lineup,” said JongRyul Kim, CEO of CJ 4DPLEX. “We continue to expand this new technology to an ever-increasing and loyal consumer fan base that will help shape the movie-going landscape for years to come.”
ScreenX has grown significantly in the past year, which is available at 195 theaters in 62 different countries. Cineworld Group also announced plans to open 100 additional locations across the U.S. and Europe last summer.
