After years and years of waiting, it’s finally here. STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER represents not only the end of the most recent trilogy of STAR WARS movies, but also the final chapter of the Skywalker Saga — the nine-chapter series that launched with the original film back in 1977. Fans have been going crazy with anticipation for the release, and now it is out in theatres around the world.
This global launch includes screenings in IMAX theatres, and it's the best possible way to see STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. Why? For starters, the new release has inspired a truly epic exclusive poster you can get while supplies last.
Here are three other reasons you absolutely must see STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER at your local IMAX at AMC theatre.
The Outer Space and Lightsaber Battles Are Epic
You need the biggest screen possible to appreciate the incredible showdowns that play out in the movie.
Amazing action sequences have long been the bread and butter of the STAR WARS franchise, and while THE RISE OF SKYWALKER may be special in that it’s a major finale, one way in which it stays consistent with the other movies in the saga is that it features a number of incredible space battles and lightsaber showdowns. Your eyes get wider as you watch Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) expertly pilot his X-wing and Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) go toe to toe with their laser swords. Truly, the best way to take it all in is on the biggest screen possible, which is where seeing it in IMAX comes in. The most epic movies deserve the most epic presentation, and this is a film that proves that.
The Sounds of Star Wars Are Iconic
This is a film that demands perfection when it comes to an aural experience.
The IMAX experience isn’t just about the screen being abnormally large, as there are many different technical aspects that make the presentation extra special. This includes powerful and precise sound systems, and they are very much necessary to properly experience STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. From the screech of a TIE fighter flying across the screen, to the specific hum of a lightsaber, iconic noises fill the franchise set in a galaxy far, far away and totally immerse you in the fantasy world. Hearing it all in the best quality possible makes a big difference. Hence, IMAX is a must.
It’s a Special Movie That Deserves a Special Presentation
STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER is a once-in-a-lifetime movie, and it deserves to be seen like one.
Top-of-the-line picture and sound quality makes IMAX the best way to aesthetically appreciate a film on the big screen, but also not to be discounted is the simple specialness that comes with the experience of an expanded presentation — it’s a specialness that STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER particularly deserves. The epic blockbuster that brings to a close 42 years of cinematic history is only going to be playing in theatres for a period of time, and only a couple of weeks in IMAX theatres. Events like this don’t come around often in pop culture, and fans will want to find the best way possible to take advantage and fully respect the magnitude of it all.
