DRAGON BALL Z: BATTLE OF GODSA ROLLS INTO IMAXATRADEMARK DIGITAL THEATRES ACROSS JAPAN STARTING MARCH 30
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods will be digitally remastered into the immersive Imax Corp. format and released to Imax digital theatres in Japan starting March 30. The film marks the first-ever Japanese movie to be released in Imax, as well as the first movie instalment in Akira Toriyama's iconic Dragon Ball franchise in 17 years.
Mr. Toriyama, highly influential in manga animation and known for his playful, influential storytelling and distinctive art style, has been involved with the development of the screenplay and the production for this latest feature. He has delivered a completely new original story that is focused on the period between the Z and GT Dragon Ball animated series -- or, more specifically, between instalments 517 and 518 of the Dragon Ball comic book series, filling the 10-year story lapse after Demon Boo is defeated. "We're proud to be partnering with a pioneering manga creator like Akira Toriyoma to release the latest instalment of this beloved franchise and our first Japanese film in Imax," said Greg Foster, chairman and president of Imax Entertainment. "With its fast-paced battle sequences and stunning visuals, we believe Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods is an ideal fit for the Imax experience."
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods will be digitally remastered into the image and sound quality of the Imax experience, with proprietary Imax DMR (digital remastering) technology for presentation in Imax. The crystal-clear images, coupled with Imax's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique immersive environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
