The Philippines will take part in Walt Disney Pictures’ global event “TRON Night: An IMAX 3D Experience” on Thursday, Oct. 28 at the IMAX Theaters of SM North EDSA and SM Cebu.
Simultaneously scheduled in IMAX cinemas worldwide, “TRON Night” will gives audiences the chance to see more than 20 minutes of never-before-seen 3D footage from Disney’s upcoming film, “TRON: Legacy,” a 3D high-tech action-adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen.
“It’s exciting to offer fans an early, exclusive 3D preview of `TRON: Legacy’ in the ultimate of formats. We can’t wait for audiences around the world to experience the visually stunning and cutting-edge world that director Joe Kosinski has created,” said Sean Bailey, President of Production, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment, is equally enthusiastic. “We are ecstatic that the Disney team and the `TRON: Legacy’ filmmakers elected to debut this amazing footage exclusively in our network of theaters,” said Foster. “This first-look in IMAX 3D is the most immersive way to bring audiences into the world of `TRON: Legacy’ and kick-off the countdown to the film’s highly-anticipated launch.”
