The Force is Strong With This New 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' IMAX Deal
From latinoreview, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is truly bringing a whole new meaning to the term "go big or go home." The seventh installment in the billion dollar franchise has struck a deal with IMAX to reserve every IMAX screen for four straight weeks, basically pushing out any would-be competition. If you think this sounds odd or unusual, this isn't the first time IMAX has struck a deal like this with a studio or film before.
They did this with all 3 Hobbit films, allowing them to have plenty of time to make as much bank at the box office before any other films could come by and try to stop their parade. And with another Star Wars film already being hyped up as the second coming of Christ, this news will only help it to cross the threshold of being the highest grossing film of all time.
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" will debut on December 18th, and will be directed by J.J. Abrams. It will star actors such as Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong'o, and the return of Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford.
