With ever more companies going the IMAX route, Universal's [Fast & Furious 7](movie:264263) and [Jurassic World](movie:32752) among the list, Dreamwork's has just announced that [How to Train Your Dragon 2](movie:44736) will be their IMAX presentation.
Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment had a few words to say on the announcement:
This is one of the most cinematic animated movies we've ever seen, and the epic nature of the film coupled with the incredible new technology DreamWorks used to create it makes this simply stunning in IMAX 3D...
...as with several movies that have recently taken off in IMAX, this is one of those rare films that will come to life in an incomparable way through our immersive format. Our audiences will truly feel like they are flying on the back of Toothless, and we're pleased to once again be partnering with DreamWorks Animation to bring this adventurous film to life.
The story once again follows the heroic Viking Hiccup and his dragon Toothless as they battle against the evil Drago.
The returning cast includes Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Jonah Hill and Craig Ferguson to name a few. They will be accompanied by some new additions in the form of Cate Blanchett, Djimon Honsou and Kit Harington.
Check out the trailer if you haven't already seen it as I happen to agree with what Greg Foster says; it does look very cinematic:
How to Train Your Dragon 2 will be released in theaters and IMAX on June 13.
