Though our neighbours across the pond get to see Skyfall in theaters two weeks earlier than we get it in North America, those stateside will still be given the opportunity to catch James Bond’s latest adventure a tad earlier than some, as it’s been announced through Twitter that the film will open one day early, exclusively on IMAX screens.
As IMAX screens continue to pop up on a global level, the format is increasingly becoming a favourite for both patrons and filmmakers with Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight Trilogy” proving immensely successful. With skilled cinematographer Roger Deakins working alongside director Sam Mendes on Skyfall, the larger, high-def format is looking to be a perfect option for this 007 instalment.
Though buzz will likely be palpable by the time Skyfall arrives in North America, it certainly doesn’t hurt to get even more word of mouth (hopefully of the positive variety) swirling around the blogosphere. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol found incredible success with its early IMAX debut, but that film had a full week to gain momentum and Skyfall will only have a day.
So there you have it. For those wanting their retinas permanently branded with the image of Daniel Craig, head to your nearest IMAX theater on November 8 to check out Skyfall.
For everyone else, you can fight the crowds on November 9.
