Harry Potter movie opens in 72 Imax theatres globally

MUMBAI: The adventure continues in Imax!

Today, 18 November 2005 Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: The IMAX Experience is being released in select Imax theatres concurrent with the 35mm release.

The film is expected to debut in a record

72 Imax theatres with an additional 18 to open in weeks following, eclipsing the mark set by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: The Imax Experience earlier this year.

In India, it has been released today in Mumbai at the Imax Dome in Wadala and also in Delhi and Hyderabad. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has been digitally re-mastered for The Imax Experience with proprietary Imax DMR (digital re-mastering) technology. This is the fourth installment in the beloved Harry Potter franchise, and the second to be digitally re-mastered into Imax.

The film's director, Mike Newell, who also made Four Weddings and A Funeral says, "We are very excited to bring the suspense, humour, action and drama of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to life on the giant Imax screen. The breathtaking Imax format brings a whole new

perspective to this marvellous story."

Warner Bros. Pictures president domestic distribution, Dan Fellman says, "There is clearly a real appetite on the part of audiences to see Harry Potter on the Imax screen. We are glad to be able to offer this unique viewing experience in selected Imax theaters in America and in Canada, and we can already see that fans are thrilled to have this opportunity."

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry played by Daniel Radcliffe must contend with being mysteriously selected to compete in the prestigious Triwizard Tournament. This is a competition that pits him against older and more experienced students from Hogwarts and two rival European wizarding schools. Meanwhile, supporters of Harry's nemesis, the

evil Lord Voldemort played by Ralph Fiennes The English Patient, send a shockwave of fear throughout the wizard community when their Dark Mark scorches the sky at the Quidditch World Cup, signalling Voldemort's return to power. But for Harry, this is not the only harrowing news causing him anxiety -- he still has yet to find a date for Hogwarts' Yule Ball dance.
