KARLOVY VARY – Imax is going to supersize the martial arts action film The Man of Tai Chi, from first-time director Keanu Reeves, for release on its screens in China on July 5.
The deal, a partnership with China Film Group, Wanda Group and Village Roadshow Pictures, will see the Mandarin-language film released on Imax screens as its premieres on screens nationwide in China.
Imax, reunited with The Matrix actor-director, said it will possibly expand its release of the China-U.S. co-production to other territories.
“We’re happy to be back in business with our longtime partner Keanu Reeves, an advocate of the Imax experience and a global star who has already proven to be very popular with our audiences,” said Greg Foster, chairman and president of Imax Entertainment, in a statement.
The Man of Tai Chi was co-produced by the China Film Group, Wanda Media, Village Roadshow Pictures Asia, and Universal Pictures.
It will be distributed internationally by Universal.
