‘Black Widow’ to Open with Expanded Aspect Ratio Exclusively in IMAX

IMAX announced that select scenes of Marvel Studios’ “Black Widow” will debut on IMAX screens with an expanded aspect ratio. With 22 minutes of footage specially formatted for IMAX theatres, film fans can experience the film at 1.90:1 aspect ratio — showing up to 26% more of the onscreen image.

Aspect ratio is the technical term for the proportional relationship between an image’s width and height. While most films are presented in an aspect ratio called CinemaScope (2.40:1) which is why they appear very wide but not very high. IMAX provides filmmakers with the ability to use an expanded aspect ratio – allowing them to use more of the original image. Watching a film with an expanded aspect ratio provides audiences with a full immersive view that fills the peripheral vision more than any other cinematic experience.

Directed by Cate Shortland, “Black Widow” stars Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour and Rachel Weisz. It will debut in IMAX theatres on July 9.

By partnering with these services, we can increase the likelihood of a film’s monetary success by bringing access to our filmmakers.”
