Captain Marvel, which opens March 8, will be the third movie from Marvel Studios to be converted into the ScreenX format. It is the latest collaboration between The Walt Disney Studios and CJ 4DPlex and follows the globally successful ScreenX release of Black Panther and Ant-Man and The Wasp. Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson in the title role and is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.
Regal will open a ScreenX theatre on February 13 at its Regal Marq*E location in Houston, Texas. The new ScreenX auditorium brings the current Regal ScreenX count to 12 and is also home to the immersive, multi-sensory film format, 4DX, which opened last month. The latest ScreenX opening is part of a previously announced major expansion plan with the Cineworld Group, the parent company of Regal.
In time for the release of Warner Bros. horror film The Nun, Regal announced today that it’s opening ScreenX locations in New York City and San Francisco. The launch this Thursday will mark the first theatres in each of these cities to feature CJ4DPlex’s ScreenX, the premium, panoramic, 270-degree cinema environment that projects films on three walls of the auditorium. With these openings, ScreenX expands its domestic presence to seven locations.
The Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios’ upcoming film Ant-Man and The Wasp will be released in ScreenX, CJ4DPlex’s panoramic film format. Ant-Man and The Wasp is set to premiere around the world beginning July 4.
