“Together with IMAX and our exhibitor partners, we have built a unique, incremental distribution platform over the last 10 years,” said Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. “We are excited to continue this tradition and offer these films to audiences in the most premium of moviegoing experiences.”

“The IMAX footprint continues to expand with tremendous success around the world,” said Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President, International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. “We are very pleased to be presenting our 2013 and future slate in this premium theatrical environment.”

“Our longstanding partnership with Warner Bros. has resulted in extraordinary experiences for IMAX audiences, and we’re excited to add these core additional titles to our upcoming film slate,” said Richard L.
