'Tron: Legacy' going day-and-date in Imax

Disney's 3D adventure pic opens in late 2010

TORONTO -- Giant screen exhibitor Imax said Thursday that it will release Walt Disney's 3D adventure pic "Tron: Legacy" day-and-date with its wider theatrical release on Dec. 17, 2010.

The Joseph Kosinski-directed movie, which stars Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde, will be digitally remastered to produce a super-sized version for Imax theaters.

"Tron: Legacy" represents the third of a five-picture deal between Imax and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

Imax this week said "Spider-Man 4" will screen in its theaters in 2011.

"This is an ideal movie for Imax's immersive format," said Mark Zoradi, president of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
