Sony Pictures' sports action movie Gran Turismo: Based on a True Story is being showcased in both CJ 4DPlex’s 270-degree panoramic ScreenX format and the multi-sensory 4DX experiential format in theatres domestically beginning today.
The ScreenX format elevates the movie theatre experience by creating mesmerizing sights across dual-sided screens. CJ 4DPlex teamed up with Sony Pictures to create exclusive story enhancing visuals of key selected sequences to supercharge the ultimate coming-of-age sports action film, exclusively available in the ScreenX format.
The film is based on the unbelievable true story of a team of unlikely underdogs – a struggling working-class gamer, a failed former racecar driver, and an idealistic motorsport executive. Together, they risk it all to take on the most elite sport in the world.
Gran Turismo: Based on a True Story is an inspiring, thrilling, and action-packed story that proves that nothing is impossible when you're fueled from within.
CJ 4DPlex also invites fans of PlayStation Studios' critically acclaimed video game the film is based on to switch out of the traditional lane and experience Gran Turismo: Based on a True Story in effects-enhancing 4DX auditoriums. The multi-sensory 4DX format utilizes more than 21 unique motion and environmental effects like vibration, water, wind, lightning, and scents, among others.
Movie-goers can shift gears and experience Gran Turismo: Based on a True Story in more than 791 4DX auditoriums worldwide.
