The Hunger Games Sequel To Feature Some IMAX Sequences

The next film to join the craze of IMAXing certain sequences will be The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The large format film company have themselves announced that Francis Lawrence and team will shoot some of the movie in the large format, and the remainder will be digitally upscaled.

The Dark Knight was the first film to employ this particular gimmick, followed by Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, The Dark Knight Rises and the Star Trek sequel.

In each of these cases, much of the film plays out in a wider, lower-resolution image that then “pops open” at certain points. This change prompts a lot of oohing, aahing and widespread awareness that, actually, you’re sat in a cinema watching a piece of artifice designed to impress. It’s something I’d expect from a theme park attraction more than a narrative feature film.

I’m really not a fan of these split-format shoots. I’d far prefer people just shot their whole film in IMAX if they must.

Anyway, IMAX tickets cost a lot, and this half measure gives the marketing and PR people something to sell without the film having to bear the budget necessary to shoot a whole film on IMAX cameras.
