'Inception,' 'Star Trek' and 'Fast Five' Making Limited IMAX Returnsby: Posted:
If overwhelming visuals take your breath aways as easily as they steal your movie-going dollars, consider this your Deal of the Century.
If you missed out on seeing 2009's "Star Trek" reboot, 2010's mesmerizing Oscar-nominated "Inception" or this past year's "The Fast And The Furious" hit sequel "Fast Five" in eye-popping IMAX, then your Christmas begins Sept. 30.
That's when AMC Theaters' IMAX Big Movie Week kicks off with the three IMAX hits returning to theaters only until Oct. 6. Combined, these three movies earned a combined total of more than $760 million in domestic gross alone.
Best news of all, though? Each will cost only $7. I can't speak for other markets, but at my local AMC theaters, seeing movies on a standard screen costs $10 a pop.
For those completely unfamiliar with any of these three, "Inception" is "The Dark Knight Rises" director Christopher Nolan's surreal heist fantasy in which a team of grifters led by Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt infiltrate the dreams of a dying executive's troubled son (played by Cillian Murphy) to perform one ultimate heist with DiCaprio's future at stake.
The brain-child of "Lost" and "Alias" mastermind J.J. Abrams, "Star Trek" stars Christopher Pine as James T. Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock in a prequel that traces the franchise's legacy all the way back to the pair's younger days as bitter Starfleet Academy rivals.
Finally, "Fast Five" is the second in what star Vin Diesel has described as a "new trilogy" of the successful "The Fast And The Furious" street-racing franchise that teams up Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and the anthology's other adrenaline-spiked thieves in evading a lawman played by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
