A movie best seen in IMAX
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War is the first film to use the new IMAX/Arri 2D Camera, which enables viewers to have better and immersive experience watching a movie. This we learned at the launch of Captain America: Civil War exhibit on display at SM North Edsa.
IMAX has been very selective as to who utilizes its cameras, limiting it to Zack Snyder (Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice), Brad Bird (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Christopher Nolan (Interstellar), and J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens).
Naturally, the film is best projected on IMAX screens, which widen the view of the scene making sure no perspective is cut off frame.
In a recent interview, the film’s co-director said, “When you’re working on a Marvel film, there’s a sense of showmanship that goes along with the movies, and no exhibitor exploits that better than IMAX.”
Also at the launch, SM unveiled the eight-feet tall statues of Iron Man and Captain America. Interactive activities are also available. The booth is open to the public and will be available at SM City North EDSA. Fans are encouraged to “make a stand” by choosing #SMTeamCap or #SMTeamIronMan online to win a three-day, two-night stay at a hotel in Singapore and a chance to see Chris Evans and other stars live at Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War blue carpet premiere at the Marina Bay Sands.
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War will be out in all IMAX theatres and SM Cinemas beginning April 27.
‘60 Days In’ prison
“The most interesting thing that I went through while I while I was incarcerated was the complete world change. When you leave behind your life to go to jail, it is almost like entering a different country.”
This is the statement of Barbra, a military wife and a mother of two, who volunteered to live in jail for 60 days. She is one of the seven participants that lived inside the Clark County Jail without officers, fellow inmates, or staff knowing their secret.
This social experiment is documented for the series entitled 60 Days In, an unprecedented new, original docu-series following seven innocent participants who enter the dangerous world of incarceration at the Clark County Jail in Jeffersonville, Indiana, in an effort to expose internal issues and what really happens behind bars.
“While I cannot give a lot of details away, I will say that being incarcerated as an inmate on the show has completely changed me. I am a different person. I think differently, I act differently, I view life differently. You will see me go through a complete transformation,” Barbra noted in an email interview with The Standard.
She added that her most memorable experience in jail was when she finally hit her breaking point with an inmate who had antagonized her since the day she arrived.
“I was able to get to the bottom of what was really going on and figure out why she was so threatened by me. You will have to watch the show to see what happens,” she said.
When we asked what were their living conditions like and how did she adapt to it, Barbra answered: “A day to day schedule in jail would be to sleep all day and stay awake all night.”
She said that they would wake up at around 8 a.m. for breakfast after only having about 3 hours of sleep. After lunch, they usually tried to stay awake for the rest of the day and read books, or draw pictures and in her case, write stories in her journal.
“I would find ways to bide the time until dinner…showed up around 5 p.m. After dinner, I would play cards, watch TV, or continue to write stories in my journal. You almost go through a complete time flop in jail, because most inmates stay awake all night long and sleep all day, because they say “it makes the time go by faster,” Barbra ended.
60 Days In premiered on April 9 at 9 p.m. on CI, which is available on Skycable Ch 98, Dream Satellite Ch 35, Cablelink Ch 41 and Destiny Cable Ch 98.
