‘Game Of Thrones’ IMAX Featurette With David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (Video)
  |  @   |  

Game Of Thrones makes history today, Thursday, January 29, 2015, as it becomes the first television series to be screened in IMAX. Digitally remastered editions of Episodes 9 and 10 of the HBO series’ fourth season will begin showing today in up to 200 IMAX theaters and will run through February 5, 2015.

IMAX has released a featurette for the event, which contains footage from the episodes, along with an interview with executive producers and showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who talk about seeing the show on the massive IMAX screen.

Watch the featurette here below.

Audiences at the theatrical screenings will also be treated to a sneak peek at Season 5 created exclusively for IMAX.

Episode 9, “The Watchers on the Wall,” takes place entirely at The Wall with the Night’s Watch hopelessly outnumbered as they attempt to defend Castle Black from the Wildings and features one the fiercest and most intense battle scenes ever filmed for television.

Episode 10, the season finale entitled “The Children,” features Dany coming to grips with the realities of ruling a kingdom, Bran learning the startling reality of his destiny and Tyrion facing the truth of his unfortunate situation. Game of Thrones is an epic series whose storylines of treachery and nobility, family and honor, ambition and love, and death and survival, have captured the imagination of fans globally and made it one of the most popular shows on television.

Tickets for the Game Of Thrones IMAX limited engagement are on sale now.

Some of the showing, especially in big cities, are already sold out, according to EW, which adds that the Game Of Thrones pre-sale numbers are higher than nearly all of IMAX’s previous non-new-release special event screenings. This is an impressive feat considering the episodes already aired last year on HBO and are currently available for viewing through the HBO GO streaming service. (The Season 4 Blu-ray and DVD will be released on February 17, 2015.)
