IMAX Twilight: Eclipse to Showcase Five-Story Tall Abs, Beat Dark Knight
Good news, fangirls! Next summer's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will be available for viewing in glorious IMAX. Whether this is the real, towering IMAX known to select theaters around the country or simply the more plentiful, junior-sized, Ansari-tweaking screens everywhere else, let there be no doubt that when Kristen Stewart brushes hair out of her eyes, you will feel the gust of wind. And, more importantly, Summit Entertainment will stop at nothing to overtake The Dark Knight's all-time opening-weekend record.
The studio might have surpassed it three weeks ago had New Moon's $140 million windfall been able to factor in that standard 25 percent surcharge on IMAX tickets. This should probably knock the champ off once and for all on June 30 -- the first in a five-day release frame that culminates in the Fourth of July holiday. That's right: Get ready for a world in which David Slade directed the biggest opener in Hollywood history. Moreover, get ready for a werepenis the size of a bus. At least there'll be no need to squint this time around.
