The giant-screen exhibitor will release Michael Bay's "Transformers 4" and Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" in 2014.

TORONTO -- Imax and Paramount Pictures have extended their business ties to release five of the Hollywood studio’s upcoming films, starting with Michael Bay's Transformers 4 in June 2014 and a co-production of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar in November of the same year.

Another three yet to be announced Paramount Pictures are part of the agreement.

The extended deal follows Imax successfully releasing Nolan's The Dark Knight.

In that film, and Bay's upcoming Transformers 4, Imax’s proprietary cameras are pressed into service to fill the large-format exhibitor’s screens.

"Imax is among the greatest ways to experience a movie," Rob Moore, vice chairman of Paramount Pictures, said in a statement Monday.

“Working with today's top filmmakers, we look forward to bringing audiences the most exciting new movies with the very best presentation for years to come,” he added.
