IMAX has announced that it will be presenting Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: An IMAX 3D Experience in conjunction with the film’s theatrical release. The film’s opening title sequence and its climactic final showdown will be presented in the IMAX 3D format.

Approximately 25 minutes of this sixth Harry Potter film will be coming at you in amazing IMAX 3D. Like Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which offered 17 minutes in 3D, this new sequel will be transferred in an up conversion of the process, as the film itself wasn’t actually shot with a 3D camera.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: An IMAX 3D Experience will be distributed exclusively by Warner Bros. Pictures on July 17th, 2009.
