Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… heading straight for us!
Those could well be the words you’ll shout when “Man of Steel” flies into theaters next June, as it’s just been announced on the official IMAX website that the Zack Synder directed Superman reboot will be post-converted for an IMAX 3-D release. In addition to that announcement, the IMAX site has a new plot synopsis for “Man of Steel” that reveals some new, intriguing details about Kal-El’s upcoming struggle.
From the site:
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question ‘Why am I here?’ Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.
The IMAX release of MAN OF STEEL will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
