IMAX 3D - Pirates of the carribean: On stranger Tides

IMAX Corporation and The Walt Disney Studios announced today that the action fantasy adventure Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will be released in the immersive IMAX(R) 3D format to a record number of theatres worldwide this Friday, May 20th. This is the first film of the series to be released in IMAX and is making a considerable splash, marking the largest IMAX release ever with 257 IMAX screens in US, simultaneous with its India release. At least six supplementary theatres will launch after May 20, to be confirmed in coming days. Additionally, the movie will open day-and-date on 139 IMAX screens internationally. Advance ticket sales for the film have also been robust.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides: An IMAX 3D Experience has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience(R) with proprietary IMAX DMR(R) (Digital Re-mastering) technology for presentation in IMAX 3D. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique immersive environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise--this time in Disney Digital 3D(TM). Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed adventure. Crossing paths with the enigmatic Angelica (Penelope Cruz), he's not sure if it's love--or if she's a ruthless con artist who's using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the "Queen Anne's Revenge," the ship of the legendary pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or Angelica, with whom he shares a mysterious past. The international cast includes franchise vets Geoffrey Rush as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack's longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, plus Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.

Walt Disney Pictures' and Jerry Bruckheimer Films' Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opens in theaters May 20, 2011, in Disney Digital 3D(TM) and IMAX 3D.
