Nicholas D'Agosto's Final Desination 5 will be released in IMAX theaters
IMAX Corporation and Warner Bros. Pictures today announced that the next installment in the popular Final Destination franchise, Final Destination 5, will be the first film in the horror series to open in IMAX. The film will be released in 223 domestic and select international IMAX 3D digital theatres simultaneously with the film's worldwide release on Aug. 12, 2011.

Warner Bros. Pictures President of Domestic Distribution Dan Fellman stated, "Seeing Final Destination 5 in IMAX 3D will make this an entirely new experience for even the most die-hard fan. With the sheer size of the screen and the added intensity of IMAX 3D, this won't be for the faint of heart. But for those who love a good scare, it's not to be missed."

"Final Destination 5 is an exciting new addition to our 2011 slate and another example of our strong and enduring relationship with Warner Bros. Pictures," said no_Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. "As the first film of the Final Destination franchise to be released in the immersive IMAX 3D format, we are certain that it will have audiences on the edge of their seats asking for more. The combination of Final Destination and Harry Potter is a great way to round out our summer movie season."

About Final Destination 5

No matter where you run, no matter where you hide...you can't cheat death. Or can you? In Final Destination 5, Death is just as omnipresent as ever, first revealing its menacing reality to a group of coworkers headed for a corporate retreat. During the bus ride, Sam (Nicholas D'Agosto) has a premonition in which he and most of his friends, as well as numerous others, die in a horrific bridge collapse. When his vision ends, events begin to mirror what he had seen, and he frantically ushers as many of his colleagues--including his friend, Peter (Miles Fisher), and girlfriend, Molly (Emma Bell)--away from the disaster before Death can claim them. But these unsuspecting souls were never supposed to survive and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group tries to discover a way to escape Death's sinister agenda.

Final Destination 5 was directed by Steven Quale, marking his feature film directorial debut. The screenplay was written by Eric Heisserer, based on characters created by Jeffrey Reddick. Producers Craig Perry and Warren Zide return for the fifth time, working with executive producers Richard Brener, Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter, Erik Holmberg and Sheila Hanahan. New Line Cinema presents, a Practical Pictures/Zide Pictures production, Final Destination 5. The film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. The film has been rated R for strong violent/gruesome accidents, and some language. FinalDestinationMovie.com

Concurrently with its nationwide theatrical distribution, the film will be released in select IMAX theaters worldwide.

The IMAX release of Final Destination 5 will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 3D Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
