Imax's 2010 film slate includes upcoming 3D releases like DreamWorks Animation's "Shrek Forever After 3D," Walt Disney Pictures' "Toy Story 3 3D" and "Tron Legacy 3D" and from Warner Bros. Pictures "Legends of the Guardian: The Owls of Ga'hoole 3D" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 3D."
