Thor is back with another adventure! Find out what is the best format to watch ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’.
Best Format to Enjoy Thor 4
This is the 29th MCU movie in the MCU, releasing on July 08 this year. But Thor 4 is releasing on July 07 in India and some other countries.
Now the question is what is the best way to enjoy this new journey of Thor. Let’s take a look at some of the best options:
IMAX is a fabulous format to enjoy any action-fantasy movie to its fullest. It is currently available in most locations also. They have a bigger screen with amazing projectors and audio systems.
But the main reason why IMAX is the best format for Thor Love and Thunder is that this film is partially shot with IMAX-certified cameras. This means some of the scenes in it will have a 1.90:1 aspect ratio which will completely fill the theatre screen from top to bottom.
Here is the official IMAX Teaser for Thor 4:
These special scenes are shot with the latest Arri Alexa LF and Mini LF cameras, certified by the company under their new ‘Filmed for IMAX’ program. They can capture 4K footage. These same Arri cameras were also used in Dune (2021).
Other upcoming MCU movies like ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ and ‘The Marvels’ will also be using the same set of cameras.
You have both options to either experience it in 3D or 2D for IMAX but it depends on availability at your location.
But we recommend IMAX 3D because IMAX 3D because this movie has marvellous and colourful special effects, which will look mind-blowing in with the added depth.
4DX is another theatre format you can go with. What is different here is that it adds some cool effects like rain, fog, moving seats and scents. And with all that, you get a 3D screening. Isn’t it Really Cool? Right. All this is simulated inside the theatre.
But please note that you will not interval in-between the movie and snacks inside are not allowed. But for a 2 hours runtime, this is not big of a problem.
Now comes ScreenX! It is quite a newer format compared to others but slowly it is also gaining popularity around the world. Thor Love and Thunder is the 8th MCU movie to get a ScreenX release.
In this type of theatre, you get two screens on your left and right wall, along with the main screen. This gives us a 270-degree viewing experience.
While this technology is very famous in South Asia, it is still to be explored by western audiences of Hollywood. So, if you try it, this will be completely different from anything you have seen before.
Last comes the good-old 3D. While the most western audience is leaving the 3D experience, and going back to 2D, I will advise this for Thor 4. This new Marvel movie is going to a lot of action scenes, space travel and scenes shot with StageCraft tech with a lot of lightning VFX.
That all will be a perfect thing to revisit the 3D and get the extra dimension of immersion.
So now you know the best format to watch the upcoming Thor 4 movie. Enjoy it as early as possible to avoid spoilers!
