New Thor: Ragnarok IMAX Exclusive Poster Shows Off Photoshop's Ink Outlines Filter

Fans of Marvel Studios and Photoshop's filter gallery are in for a treat if they see Thor: Ragnarok in IMAX on opening night.

IMAX has revealed the details of its theater giveaways for moviegoers who see Thor: Ragnarok in IMAX theaters on October 24th (UK) or November 3rd (US). For those seeing the movie in IMAX, they'll get to bring home an EXCLUSIVE collectible ticket. While supplies last, of course:


But the real treat comes for those who see the movie on opening night in select IMAX theaters. They'll be able to get their hands on an EXCLUSIVE poster for the movie that shows off not only the film's colorful style, but also some intern's skilled use of Photoshop's "ink outlines" filter.

"They tell me, Vlad, spend no more than five minutes prepping this artwork," said IMAX intern and definitely real person Vlad Kozinkerov of his work. "So that is what I do."

Kozinkerov explained that he chose the ink outlines filter because of its ability to transform an image in a matter of seconds from a regular piece of artwork to a piece of artwork that looks like someone has applied a filter to it. "It is still better than the special effects on Inhumans," Kozinkerov told us, a fact that would be hard to argue with. He demonstrated with another Thor: Ragnarok poster:

Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on October 24th (UK)/November 3rd (US). If you're not able to make it to one of the theaters above and grab some free schwag, you could always try to steal one of the move posters off the wall as a keepsake. Not that Bleeding Cool would ever condone something like that.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
