With less than a week to go until we return to the galaxy far, far away, IMAX has released a new featurette for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which focusses on the use of IMAX camera technology.
“That feeling of going to the movies and having a fully immersive, powerful, high-quality presentation of the film is something that is more valuable than ever and I think IMAX stands for that,” states director J.J. Abrams. “When you go to see a movie in that format you know you are going to get something that is the best version of going out to the movies.”
