Aquaman: 90 Percent Of Movie Is In IMAX Aspect Ratio, Reveals Director

Aquaman director James Wan has revealed that almost 90 percent of the film is in full IMAX aspect ratio. The use of IMAX technology guarantees some eye-popping visual effects for the audiences as almost all scenes in the movie wouldn’t have black bars and fill up the entire screen in theaters.

It was when a fan took to Twitter to ask Wan if there are any scenes in the full IMAX aspect ratio in Aquaman, he replied nearly the whole movie has been shot using the IMAX technology.

“Roughly 90%. Nearly the whole movie. Seriously,” Wan tweeted.

However, it currently remains unknown if the IMAX aspect ratio will make it to the upcoming DC film’s home video as well. Notably, Christopher Nolan’s 2008 Batman classic The Dark Knight was the first mainstream film to use IMAX filmed footage. Around 30 minutes of the film was shot using IMAX cameras. Zack Snyder also partially shot Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League in an IMAX-friendly aspect ratio.

Some select sequences of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984 will also reportedly be shot using the large format cameras. The film’s release has been delayed back seven months from Nov. 1, 2019, to June 5, 2020.

When another fan asked Wan if Aquaman’s marketing including trailers, television spots and promo clips were showing too much of the movie, he said in the words of Vulko, the trailers or promos have not even close to revealed what the film has in store.

Wan recently attended the Aquaman blue carpet premiere event in Beijing along with actors Jason Momoa and Amber Heard. He also shared pictures of the event on his Twitter account. Around 25 minutes of footage from the film was screened at the fan event.

Aquaman will release in China on December 7, 2018, in Brazil and Russia on December 13, 2018, and in India on December 14. The movie will hit the US theatres on December 21, 2018.
