'Transformers' bulks up for Imax


TORONTO -- Imax Corp. will screen a supersized version of "Transformers" beginning Sept. 21, ahead of the fall DVD release of the DreamWorks/Paramount Pictures action film, the giant-screen exhibitor said Tuesday.

Toronto-based Imax said it will work with director Michael Bay in digitally remastering "Transformers," which has generated $310 million in domestic boxoffice since its July 3 bow in conventional theaters.

"As fans of 'Transformers' await the release of the DVD in the fall, they will have a brand-new way to experience the adventure -- as if they are actually part of the movie," Imax co-chairmen and co-CEOs Richard Gelfond and Bradley Wechsler said.
