‘Captain America: Civil War,’ ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ Secure Imax Release as Part of Disney Deal

Imax Corporation has renewed its exhibition agreement with Walt Disney Studios, ensuring that its wide screens will host a steady stream of Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm productions in the coming years.

The multi-picture deal begins this year and extends through 2017, and includes such hotly anticipated films as the seventh “Star Wars” picture and the stand-alone “Star Wars” film “Rogue One,” “Captain America: Civil War,” “Doctor Strange” and “Guardians of the Galaxy 2.”

It’s good news for Imax, because many of these productions attract passionate fanboy crowds who typically don’t mind shelling out more for a premium theatrical experience.

The pact also includes a number of Disney titles geared toward families such as “Finding Dory,” “Toy Story 4,” “Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” and a “Jungle Book” remake.
