IMAX is on a roll lately when it comes to offering up classic material on their screens in ways we’ve never seen or heard them before. Just this week, the big-screen cinema brand completed a 50th anniversary run of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, and soon Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D will tower over moviegoers with booming high definition sound!
The Associated Press reports that Michael Jackson’s estate and the IMAX company are partnering to digitally remaster Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D for a special theatrical presentation ahead of director Eli Roth’s The House with a Clock in Its Walls.
Thriller was directed by John Landis, and it first premiered in 1983. The estate’s co-executors said in a press release that Michael Jackson always wanted to offer his fans the, “latest and greatest in technology and entertainment experiences;” and a full-blown IMAX experience most certainly fits that description.
The double feature will begin playing in theaters on September 21st, 2018, with Michael Jackson’s Thriller playing just before The House with a Clock in Its Walls. The length of Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D run was not stated in the press release, but fans can safely assume that it will run until The House with a Clock in Its Walls finishes its IMAX run. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more coverage of both productions as they break!
