Second IMAX Featurette For Infinity War Takes You Closer To The Marvel Epic


Proving a big movie deserves a big, big canvas, IMAX has today rolled out the second installment of its “Behind the Frame” video series, in which Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige and his team outline the ways in which Avengers: Infinity War takes advantage of the large-screen format.

In fact, after calling upon IMAX cameras for Civil War‘s enormous airport scene, Joe and Anthony Russo captured the entirety of Infinity War in IMAX, indicating that viewers – us included! – are in for quite the treat come April 27th. Indeed, with so many characters lining the sequel’s roster, you’d be forgiven for experiencing a small bout of sensory overload when the lights go down next Friday.


In the second IMAX Behind The Frame featurette for Avengers: Infinity War, Directors Joe and Anthony Russo and Producer Kevin Feige reveal how they made Hollywood history and shot the entire film with IMAX cameras – the first time this has ever been done – to provide fans with the experience they have been waiting for in the most immersive and unforgettable way possible.

It worked a treat for Black Panther, given many of the film’s Wakanda scenes took advantage of IMAX in order to fully immerse its audience in the rich, fictional world of what is essentially Africa’s crown jewel – in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, at least.

For those curious, IMAX theaters plan to present Infinity War in its entirety “in an expanded 1.9:1 aspect ratio – showing audiences up to 26% more of the image than standard theatres – providing IMAX fans with even greater scope and immersion.”

“If you were to look at the last 10 years as a book, then Avengers 3 and Avengers 4 are very much the final chapters of that book.” Wise words from Joe Russo, and hopefully we’ll get to see a few members of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes go down swinging once Infinity War begins screening on April 27th.
