A side-by-side trailer comparison shows the considerable difference in screen size between the IMAX version of Avengers: Endgame and the standard version.
IMAX released a look at the film’s first trailer, showing that the IMAX presentation features up to 26% more picture in the frame than regular theatrical aspect ratios.
Endgame is the second Hollywood movie filmed entirely using IMAX cameras, the first being last year’s Avengers: Infinity War which was also directed by Joe and Anthony Russo.
Details about the new movie are being kept a closely guarded secret, but fan theories abound as to how the remaining Avengers and their friends will band together to reverse the tragic events brought about by the Mad Titan Thanos. Infinity War was of course a gigantic box office smash when it came out, grossing over $2 billion worldwide, and early projections suggest Endgame could be an even bigger success. Endgame will obviously feature many popular returning characters, including Iron Man, Thor, Captain Americaand Black Widow, but there will also be some new arrivals including Captain Marvel, who will first be introduced in her own solo movie (which is itself tracking to be a massive hit).
As IMAX explains, Endgame is only the second movie in history to be shot entirely using their cameras, so the bigger picture will be present for the entire film (unlike in the past when IMAX was used only for certain scenes). Of course, that 26 percent more picture is mostly concentrated in the top and bottom of frames, where there isn’t a ton of extra information. However, fans who love breaking down every shot in search of Easter eggs will probably want to see the IMAX version, so they can examine the entire uncropped image. It’s always possible that the Russo Brothers hid something somewhere at the very top or very bottom of the IMAX frame.
