As long as there have been Transformers movies, there have been Transformers movies in IMAX. “It helped build IMAX,” company CEO Greg Foster said of the franchise in a new featurette for Bay’s latest film, Transformers: The Last Knight. The video shows both new footage from the making of The Last Knight and looks back over the evolution of IMAX’s partnership with the Transformers films.
“Michael has pushed us to be more nimble, and therefore smaller, but not to compromise resolution,” Foster said. “He’s pushed us for the 3D to be more seamless.”
Transformers: The Last Knight was actually shot with IMAX 3D cameras, which Bay configured on a rig that allowed him to shoot in 3D in real time — a “not trivial” achievement, according to IMAX executive Lorne Orleans.
Watch the video below. The Last Night opens in theaters on June 23, 2017.
