Entitled ‘SkyFall’, the movie will be the 23rd movie outing for James Bond and Sony believe that now is the time to take full advantage of the IMAX technology which boasts over 350 square meters of projected image for the ultimate movie going experience.

President of Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures Rory Bruer has announced the release of the move on IMAX as:

“Skyfall will be the cool, must-see event release of the fall, and releasing the film in IMAX only reinforces that,”

Which was echoed by fellow ‘announcee’ Greg Foster who is the Chairman and President of IMAX:

“It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of this legendary franchise, whose iconic characters and electrifying action will only be amplified in the IMAX format.”

James Bond Skyfall, is directed by Sam Mendes (who also directed American Beauty) and will star James Bond stalwart actor Daniel Craig in his third movie in the James Bond series (Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace being his first two outings as 007).

Skyfall will be premiered on the official 50th anniversary of the release of the first ever 007 Movie – Dr.No, on the 26th of October worldwide except for in the US where it will hit the movie theatres on the 9th of November.
