Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and IMAX Corporation today announced that Tron: Legacy, the intense, high-tech 3D adventure starring Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde, will be released to IMAX(R) theatres in IMAX(R) 3D simultaneously with the film’s wide release on December 17, 2010. Directed by Joseph Kosinski, Tron: Legacy will be digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience(R) with IMAX DMR(R) (Digital Re-Mastering) technology. Tron: Legacy is the third film of the previously announced five-picture agreement between IMAX and Walt Disney StudiosMotion Pictures.

“This is an ideal movie for IMAX’s immersive format,” said Mark Zoradi,
president, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Group. “Tron: Legacy already
packs a punch in Disney Digital 3D(TM), and to give audiences the option to
experience the enhanced premium IMAX 3D version is a real treat. We’re
particularly excited to reach a much wider audience now that the IMAX network is
expanding with its digital locations.”

“2010 is shaping up to be a powerful year for IMAX 3D releases, and Disney’s
Tron: Legacy is a great addition,” said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. “We believe
the buzz that already surrounds this film, combined with its fan-boy following
and high-tech visual effects makes it a perfect fit for IMAX and we look forward
to its release next year.”

“We share a common goal with our partners at Disney, which is to transport
people to places they normally can’t go, and the world of Tron is certainly one
of those cool places,” added Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed
Entertainment. “Since I saw the first glimpse of Tron: Legacy in 3D over a year
ago, I’ve felt it was the perfect match for the The IMAX Experience.”

TRON: LEGACY is set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on
the big screen. Sam Flynn (HEDLUND), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin
Flynn (BRIDGES), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled
into the digital world of Tron where his father has been living for 25 years.
Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant Quorra (WILDE), father and son embark on a
life-and-death journey of escape across a visually-stunning cyber universe that
has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous. The 3D adventure is
directed by Joseph Kosinski and produced by Sean Baily, Jeffrey Silver, Steven
Lisberger and written by Lisberger, Richard Jeffries, Brian Klugman & Lee
Stemthal, Eddy Kitsis & Adam Horowitz, and Bill Wheeler.
