First look at ‘Black Panther’ in IMAX

by Phil Wheat

IMAX has officially kicked off the countdown to the February 13th release of Marvel’s Black Panther, with the announcement that select scenes from the film will be specially formatted in IMAX… Director Ryan Coogler designed several sequences of the movie to fill more of the screen at an expanded IMAX 1.9:1 aspect ratio, providing fans with 26% more of the image in IMAX than standard theatres.

Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the events of Captain America: Civil War, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk…

To illustrate the comparison of what IMAX audiences when watching Black Panther will see vs. standard theatres, check out the video and image below:


Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman (Captain America: Civil War, Get on Up), Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Fruitvale Station), Lupita Nyong’o (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, 12 Years a Slave), Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead, All Eyez on Me), Martin Freeman (Hobbit trilogy, Sherlock), Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Sicario), Angela Bassett (American Horror Story, London Has Fallen), Forest Whitaker (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Lee Daniels’ The Butler), and Andy Serkis (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars: The Force Awakens).
