20th Century Fox will release Robots: The IMAX Experience in select IMAX theatres around the world beginning Friday, March 11th. From the makers of Ice Age, Robots has been digitally re-mastered (IMAX DMR(R)) into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience(R). Audiences will watch Robots presented on a screen up to eight stories tall with 12,000 watts of digital surround sound.
Robots is directed by Academy Award(R) winner Chris Wedge, and boasts an all-star cast of contributing voices, including Ewan McGregor, Halle Berry, Mel Brooks, Greg Kinnear, Drew Carey, Jim Broadbent, Amanda Bynes and Robin Williams. Moviegoers will accompany Rodney Copperbottom (McGregor) on his journey to Robot City to meet his idol, the majestic inventor Bigweld (Brooks). Once there, Rodney finds that things are not quite as he expected, and his quest may be a lot harder than he imagined.
Julian Levin, Executive Vice President of Twentieth Century Fox added, “We are delighted to be working with IMAX on this project. The release of Robots in IMAX theaters will mark Fox’s first picture to be released day and date on IMAX and conventional 35mm screens utilizing IMAX’s unique DMR process. Each of the amazing and heartwarming characters in Robots will become ‘larger than life’ on the big screen and deliver audiences a truly remarkable movie going experience.”
