Beijing-September 8, 2017- The action thriller film The Foreigner, produced by Sparkle Roll Media, STX Entertainment and Wanda Film, will be released on September 30. Today, the film launched a trailer and an exclusive IMAX poster, and announced it will be digitally re-mastered in the immersive IMAX 3D format and released in more than 440 IMAX® theatres across China during National Day holiday.
The Foreigner, which is directed by Martin Campbell and stars Jackie Chan, Pierce Brosnan, Liu Tao and Katie Leung, will be the fifth Jackie Chan’s film presented in IMAX theaters.
The trailer shows the storyline that Guan Yuming(Jackie Chan) is constantly being pursued by the enemy, and his revenge is unstoppable. The IMAX poster also indicates that when Guan gets rid of the enemy time after time, he is no longer the humble restaurant owner before, adding more intense atmosphere to the film. Guan’s relentless search to find the terrorists leads to a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official Hennessy (Pierce Brosnan), whose anger was also gradually triggered. In today's IMAX poster, the confrontation between Jackie Chan and Brosnan is vividly portrayed.
In addition, the action sequences in the trailer become a key highlight. Jackie Chan mentioned in an interview that he and the director co-orchestrated the action scenes. From today’s trailer, it is obvious that the martial art design of the Foreigner is different from previous Jackie Chan’s film. The film focuses on more of a jungle warfare and features a large number of close combat. Combined with IMAX experience, the action sequences in The Foreigner will be more real and breathtaking to bring enhanced experience for moviegoers.
The Foreigner will be the only international action film to be released during the National Day holiday. On September 30, the film will be officially land on theaters globally.
The IMAX 3D release of The Foreigner will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
