'Dracula Untold,' 'Warcraft,' 'Crimson Peak' to get giant screen releases.
The deal is an extension of the companies’ existing long-running relationships, albeit one which tacitly acknowledges the switch of Legendary’s overall distribution relationship from Warner Bros. to Universal.
Live-action tentpole films set to get the IMAX treatment include “Dracula Untold” (October 2014), “Seventh Son” (pictured, February 2015), “Fast & Furious 7” (April 2015), “Jurassic World” (June 2015), “Everest” (September 2015), “Crimson Peak” (October 2015) and “Warcraft” (March 2016).
“The IMAX platform has performed over and over again for Legendary, and through this deal we will continue to deliver an unparalleled filmed entertainment experience, as well as showcase the work of our directors in a way that resonates with audiences around the world,” said Thomas Tull, Legendary’s chairman and CEO, in a prepared statement
“This marks our first multi-picture deal with both studios, with which we’ve had long standing partnerships, and we look forward to continuing that collaboration to bring some of the most highly anticipated product to IMAX fans around the world,” said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond in a statement.
