"Cinderella" in IMAX Cinemas on March 12th!
The highly anticipated live-action “Cinderella” – directed by Academy Award® nominee Kenneth Branagh and starring Academy Award® winner Cate Blanchett as the Stepmother and Lily James in the timeless title role – will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX® format and released in IMAX® theatres in the Philippines starting March 12th.
“Cinderella” will also bow in 2D cinemas across the country on the same date.
A live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale, “Cinderella” is written by Chris Weitz and produced by Simon Kinberg, Allison Shearmur and David Barron. Tim Lewis served as executive producer.
"Based on the timeless classic, `Cinderella' now is a visually breath-taking live-action gem from the hugely talented Kenneth Branagh, with whom we're thrilled to partner again, as well as the wonderful team at Disney," said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. "Having been fortunate to see the movie several weeks ago, we believe `Cinderella' will resonate with movie-goers from around the globe, and we can't wait to share it with IMAX audiences worldwide."
The IMAX® release of “Cinderella” will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) 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.
