History is being made with the release of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War as it not only marks the first time all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are coming together, but it is the first Hollywood film ever to be shot entirely using IMAX® cameras. Exclusively in IMAX® theatres, the film will be presented in its entirety in an expanded 1.9:1 ratio – offering moviegoers up to 26% more of the image than standard theatres for a truly immersive experience.

"When you sit in an IMAX theatre it takes up your entire field of vision and you begin to forget that there even are borders and you're in the entire movie. As a filmmaker that's what you want the audience to feel." - Kevin Feige, Producer and President of Marvel Studios

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo designed Avengers: Infinity War for IMAX by shooting the entire film with IMAX cameras and presenting it in IMAX’s expanded 1.9:1 aspect ratio.
Most films today are presented in an aspect ratio known as “CinemaScope” (2.40:1). When a film is presented in CinemaScope it is often cropped and uses only part of the image the movie camera captures. This is the reason most ordinary screens are very wide but not particularly high – like looking at the world through a narrow slit.

The Russo Brothers utilized the ALEXA IMAX 65mm camera to film Avengers: Infinity War. It is a next-generation revolutionary 2D digital camera developed through a partnership between ARRI and IMAX for use by today's leading filmmakers working in the IMAX® format. The camera, when combined with IMAX’s digital re-mastering process, delivers the highest level of digital image capture and playback resulting in stunning lifelike images with pristine clarity, incredibly fine detail, vivid colors and a higher dynamic range for superior contrast. This camera is no stranger to the world of superheroes as it was first used by the Russo Brothers to shoot the airport battle sequence of CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR.

IMAX provides filmmakers with the ability to use an expanded aspect ratio for the IMAX presentation of their film so they can utilize much more of the originally captured image – either during production through filming with the extremely high-resolution IMAX camera or by protecting more of the image during their post-production process.

IMAX released a special edition side-by-side comparison of the latest Avengers: Infinity War trailer that illustrates just how much more exciting it will be for fans to experience this epic adventure in the immersive IMAX format!
