Paramount Pictures, Nickelodeon Movies and IMAX Corporation announced recently that “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows,” the latest installment in the blockbuster franchise, will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX® format and released in all IMAX® 3D theaters across the Philippines beginning June 1st (simultaneous with its bow in 2D and 3D cinemas).
Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo return to theaters this summer in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” to battle bigger, badder villains alongside April O’Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). After super villain Shredder (Brian Tee) escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE Superstar “Sheamus”), to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: the notorious Krang.
“We are pleased to collaborate once again with our long-time friend and partner Michael Bay, as well as the entire team at Paramount, in offering international audiences the opportunity to see ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows’ in IMAX® 3D,” said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. “This latest installment raises the bar in an already highly entertaining and imaginative franchise, and we believe the film fits right in with a robust overseas IMAX summer line-up.”
