Infinity Wars to be Shot Entirely in IMAX
Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War – Parts 1 and 2 will take the plunge and use the new Imax/Arri 2D digital camera to capture the entire two-part installment of the global franchise.
The move by directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo marks the first time a Hollywood feature film will be shot only using Imax cameras and its exclusive aspect ratio. The Imax/Arri 2D digital camera, which stops short of a full Imax 3D camera rig, is a customized large format version of Arri's 6K Alexa 65 camera.
The Russo brothers (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) will capture the two-part installment on the Alexa 65, and Imax will then digitally process Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War – Parts 1 and 2 for its giant screens. The directors will use the Imax/Arri 2D digital camera for action sequences on Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, before they capture the entire Avengers: Infinity War two-parter.
It makes sense that Marvel would bring out the big guns for the two-part Infinity Wars. It definitely should be eye pleasing to say the least. The thing that makes me wonder is something that Christopher Nolan said about shooting some scenes in IMAX and that's the noise from the cameras. I know he said that would hurt some of the scenes where they shot dialogue because the cameras are so loud. Now that was a few years ago so I'm wondering if these new Arri digital cameras alleviate that issue.
