"Creed III" is the First Sports Movie Shot on IMAX Cameras

Starting March 1, experience “Creed III” — the first sports movie to be shot on IMAX cameras — as Director Michael B. Jordan intended, with Filmed-For-IMAX technology and its exclusive Expanded Aspect Ratio. The hits have more impact, the mats vibrate louder, the lights are brighter especially in that extremely humongous IMAX screen.

From Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures comes “Creed III,” with Michael B. Jordan making his directorial debut and returning in the role of Adonis Creed in the third installment of the hit franchise. The film also stars Tessa Thompson, Jonathan Majors, Wood Harris, Florian Munteanu, newcomer Mila Kent, and Phylicia Rashad. After dominating the boxing world, Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) has been thriving in both his career and family life. When a childhood friend and former boxing prodigy, Damian (Jonathan Majors), resurfaces after serving a long sentence in prison, he is eager to prove that he deserves his shot in the ring. The face-off between former friends is more than just a fight. To settle the score, Adonis must put his future on the line to battle Damian – a fighter who has nothing to lose.

To enhance the emotions as well as the action for the audience, Jordan and director of photography Kramer Morgenthau opted to film with IMAX-certified digital cameras.

Morgenthau says, “It was really exciting to be able to integrate the IMAX cameras into the filmmaking process, especially the way we used them to open the world up and to make it very immersive and visceral for the flight sequences.  And that's how we chose to use it; there was just something very magical, especially the scene at Dodger Stadium, where MBJ is walking out onto the field and the image aspect ratio expands in shot and the black bars recede, and you get this really tall, beautiful, powerful image.  It just elevates everything, there is just something hyperreal about it.  And to be the first sports movie doing that, it was a creative high.”

Jordan sums up by confirming that for audiences, “This is a movie to see on the big screen! The fights, the action, you want to see that up close and personal, you want to feel every punch, hear every impact, see every drip of sweat and drop of blood. This is a movie that will make you laugh, cry, and cheer! I want everybody to walk away feeling good, thinking, ‘Man, that was a ride!’”
