The Cary Joji Fukunaga-directed movie will feature 40 minutes extra of expanded Imax aspect ratio footage shot with the large format exhibitor’s 15/70mm film cameras. It’s the first Bond movie ever shot with Imax15/70 film cameras.

 

Also, No Time to Die will be shown in 3D and RealD making it the first film in the franchise’s 59-year history to be released in that format.

 

 

In addition, No Time to Die will be booked in the jaw-dropping ScreenX / 4DX formats. ScreenX, the 270-degree exhibition format, will expand specially selected sequences of the Bond pic onto the left and right side walls of the auditorium, surrounding audiences with extended imagery which naturally fills their peripheral vision. CJ 4DPLEX worked closely with MGM Studios, Eon Productions, and the filmmakers to ensure the highest quality presentation of the film and selected key scenes and exclusive imagery for the ScreenX versions.
