Variety reports that the IMAX Corporation is expected to announce today that Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will premiere on IMAX screens throughout the country the same day as it’s general release worldwide.
Update: Here is the press release announcing the news.
Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment, had this to say:
The impressive performance of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: The IMAX Experience showed that Harry Potter is a perfect match for IMAX's immersive format, and we are confident the fourth installment of this globally beloved series will also be a box office draw for commercial and institutional IMAX theatres worldwide. The IMAX theatre network has expanded since the last Harry Potter release, and the increase in IMAX screens should yield even greater incremental box office returns for Warner Bros. Pictures.
