January 9th, 2015 | by

The new Clint Eastwood-directed film American Sniper will be coming to IMAX large-screen theaters around the country when it is released on January 16. This is according to a new announcement by Warner Bros.

The film, which stars Bradley Cooper as the famed American military sniper Chris Kyle, was chosen for IMAX release by its studio for its emotional impact. IMAX and Warner Bros. state that the film contains a great deal of intensity and emotion that makes the film all the more important to see on a larger screen like what is used in the IMAX format.

The film, which was also co-produced by Eastwood and Cooper among others, will be digitally remastered in order to fit into this format. An IMAX screen is typically 33×60 feet or 52×72 feet in size while a traditional movie screen is 19×42 feet.
