We were already pretty excited for Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy but the more we hear the more it feels like its going to be a properly special experience.
Most recently, director James Gunn has been chatting on Facebook and revealed a little about the IMAX version of the film. Firstly its clear that he's very enthusiastic about the possibilities of using 3D in his film, carefully overseeing every moment of the post conversion.
But for those who get the chance to see Guardians in the super large format, there's even more to look forward to:
"As an EXTRA benefit for those who see the film in IMAX 3D, we will be changing aspect ratios throughout the film in a way that makes the experience even fuller and more encompassing. I've personally chosen all the places where the changes occur and, again, I love how it's coming along. The changing aspect ratios in this case are actually a part of the storytelling."
This sounds like a little more than just flitting betwween full IMAX aspect ratio and regular 2.35 - could it be using smaller images to create something like comic book panels that will fill our entire field of view? Or something to make it easy for the audience to tell when we move from one part o the universe to another?
Right now, we dont know but its great to see a filmmaker so excited about his own project. We can't wait to see what he has in store.
Guardians of the Galaxy will be in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D from the 31st of July 2014.
