Last year was a sensational year for screen-filling popcorn blockbusters, and we're celebrating with the return of the Cinewold IMAX Film Fest.
Five of 2018's biggest movies come roaring back to the big screen on Saturday 2nd March at Cineworld cinemas around the country. Experience added dimensions of the biggest and best films for a bargain price – here's what you need to know.
What is the Cineworld IMAX Film Fest?
The Cineworld IMAX Film Fest is a one-day event playing exclusively at Cineworld cinemas nationwide. Pay only £3 for a completely overwhelming experience.
What's showing at the Cineworld IMAX Film Fest?
- Mission: Impossible - Fallout – Tom Cruise takes the hair-raising stunts to the next level in this spectacular action extravaganza, the sixth in the blockbuster spy series, and the second from writer-director Christopher McQuarrie.
- Bohemian Rhapsody – Rami Malek's electrifying performance as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, recipient of Golden Globes, BAFTAs and Oscar nominations, promises to dominate IMAX screens in the most financially successful music biopic of all time.
- Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – Phil Lord and Chris Miller's eye-popping and brilliantly meta take on the Spider-Man mythology was made for IMAX, bursting with colour and clever in-jokes as the wall-crawler makes his feature film animated debut.
- Ready Player One – Steven Spielberg's gloriously nostalgic adaptation of Ernest Cline's popular novel is crammed with so many fan-pleasing popcorn references in every frame, it'll take an eagle-eyed IMAX viewer to pick all of them out.
- Deadpool 2 – What could be better than being reacquainted with Mr Pool? Why, experiencing his impressive dimensions in IMAX, of course. No, it's not as naughty as it sounds – just your chance to experience the hit superhero sequel on the biggest screen possible.
What do we need to know about IMAX?
With its curved screen and powerfully immersive digital surround sound, IMAX subtly yet visibly amplifies the immersive qualities of your favourite films.
And this year's selection shows off the format at its finest. From the breathtaking helicopter chase of Mission: Impossible - Fallout to the anarchic X-Force assault in Deadpool 2; the nostalgic DeLorean race in Ready Player One to the tactile comic book world of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and the screen-filling spectacle of Live Aid in Bohemian Rhapsody – it's an embarrassment of IMAX riches.
What is IMAX with laser?
Cineworld is the only cinema chain in the UK to provide 'IMAX with laser', a quantum leap forward in cinema technology, and it is available at Cineworld Leicester Square and Cineworld Sheffield.
IMAX with laser furnishes audiences with the brightest, sharpest, most vivid digital images ever. The pin-sharp images will transport you inside the biggest blockbusters, giving you the experience the filmmakers intended.
What other IMAX releases are incoming?
In addition to the five movies playing at the festival, you can now book your tickets for James Cameron/Robert Rodriguez manga epic Alita: Battle Angel, on release now in Cineworld.
And on 8th March, the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie Captain Marvel immerses us in the journey of the all-powerful title character in IMAX.
