Warner Brothers has always been the studio most consistently slapping their blockbusters on the biggest of big screens, and a recent agreement with IMAX Corp. means that won’t change for the next few years. Up to 20 of Warner Brothers biggest films will end up on IMAX screens in the wide variety of digital and traditional 70mm as well as the expected variety of Ds.

Some specifically mentioned films…

3D

Legends of the Guardian: The Owls of Ga’Hoole (September 24, 2010)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (November 19, 2010)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II (July 15, 2011)
Happy Feet 2 (November 18, 2011)

Unspecified

The Hobbit (December 2013)
Gravity
Dark Shadows
Fury Road
Batman 3
Superman

From that you can discern some already-obvious information such as… The Hobbit is definitely a 2013 joint, Batman 3 may or may not be in 3D, and WB wants Superman on the screen sooner rather than later.

I’m lucky enough to live near a legit, 70mm IMAX theater and will certainly be enjoying this pipeline, but this also 20 more films to rip people off with dinky IMAX-licensed-screens showings, so beware!
