Thor to be Released in IMAX 3D on May 6th, 2011


IMAX corporation announced today that it has finalized a deal with Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment to release Thor in digital IMAX theatres worldwide day-and-date, May 6, 2011.

“We’re excited to continue our relationship with IMAX following the success we shared on ‘Iron Man 2′”, said Tim Connors, Chief Operating Officer, Marvel Studios.

“Bringing iconic characters to life is something that Marvel Entertainment and Paramount do very well, and we’re confident that ‘Thor’ will also come to life on the IMAX screen,” said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond.

“We’re pleased to expand our relationship with Marvel and Paramount with Thor, which is a great addition to our summer tentpole slate,” said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. “We believe Thor will resonate with the IMAX audience by transporting them directly into the 3D world that Kenneth Branagh and the Marvel team have created for this epic film.”

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the epic adventure “Thor” spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

“Thor” is from a screenplay by Ashley Edward Miller & Zack Stentz and Don Payne and a story by J. Michael Straczynski and Mark Protosevich. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige will produce the film. Alan Fine, Stan Lee, David Maisel and Marvel Studio’s Co-President, Louis D’Esposito, will executive produce.
