The slate includes Edko Films’ “Cold War 2” starring Chow Yun-fat; Wanda Media-released “For a Few Bullets;” Jackie Chan’s “Skiptrace” and “Time Raider,” co-produced by Le Vision Pictures and Shanghai Film Group. The films are set to be released between July and August.
“The strong IMAX local-language film slate this summer is a testament to our solid and broad relationships with top Chinese studios and filmmakers, which have always been a key priority for IMAX,” said Greg Foster, senior executive V.P., IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment.
“We are delighted to join our longtime partners Wanda Media, along with Shanghai Film Group, Edko Film, Le Vision Pictures and Talent International Film, in bringing the highest-quality film content and most inspiring cinematic experience to Chinese moviegoers in the coming months. In fact, there is such a great demand for local-language product that we are considering adding more to our summer slate,” he added.
“For a Few Bullets” has been set for July 15, while “Skiptrace” will be released on July 22.
