With a February “Fan First” premier planned for IMAX theaters, the long-awaited Dune: Part Two has tickets on sale right now.
Back to the sands
Oft referred to as the best way to see movies in the modern age, the IMAX showings of Dune: Part Two should be typically incredible. Actually, maybe a little more than what you’d “typically” be expecting from the format, as the entire movie was shot with IMAX-certified digital cameras. As such, Dune: Part Two will feature the exclusive “Expanded Aspect Ratio” throughout. No, not just for select scenes, for the entire movie.
Fans will be able to see the action in the IMAX-exclusive 1.90:1 aspect ratio, but there are more twists to this one. Some IMAX theaters will be showing it in 1:43 aspect, and a super-limited number of theaters worldwide will be displaying it in IMAX 15/70mm film format. When we say “super-limited” too, we mean it, as that version will only be showing in 12 movie houses globally.
The action starts on February 25th, 2024, when the Fan First Premier takes place at 7pm. From there it’s set to be a little bit of a wait, as the movie officially opens in IMAX theaters on March 1st. So if you’re a big fan of what director Denis Villeneuve is doing with the Dune series, you might want to aim for that show on the 25th.
