I am doing better now. I just read on the official site, that AOTC is going to IMAX theatres starting November 1st!
<<This holiday season, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones will be bigger than ever. Lucasfilm Ltd., The IMAX Corporation and Twentieth Century Fox have announced that Episode II will be coming to IMAX theaters in the United States and Canada starting November 1, 2002.
This is not just the projection of the standard theatrical print on an IMAX screen -- the movie will undergo the revolutionary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) process, which enhances the quality of the image and soundtrack to the huge IMAX 15/70 format. This marks the first time IMAX DMR has been used to re-master a film that was digitally captured and created.
"Star Wars: Episode II The IMAX Experience will provide an entirely new way to experience the Star Wars universe," says Jim Ward, Vice President of Marketing for Lucasfilm. "For the first time, fans of Star Wars will be able to see all their favorite characters, environments, vehicles and droids in a setting that is up to eight stories high and over a hundred feet wide."
"The combination of Lucasfilm's innovative digital technology and the revolutionary, proprietary IMAX DMR technology will deliver the clear, crisp and sharp images and sound that IMAX theater-goers have grown to expect," says Richard L. Gelfond and Bradley J. Wechsler, Co-Chairmen and Co-CEOs for IMAX Corporation.
"You can't find a movie better suited for the IMAX format," adds Bruce Snyder, President, Domestic Distribution, Fox. "We are thrilled to bring this giant of a film to the giant IMAX screen."
Keep checking starwars.com in the coming weeks for more information about the IMAX release of Episode II.>>

^GAH! How close is the next IMAX? It is well worth the trip to see it in IMAX format.
thats a good question! where is the nearest IMAX? i would love to see AOTC in an IMAX theater!
road trip to frisco again? lol.
STUPID FRESNO!!! Maybe they'll open it just for this.... Not likely. Oh well, I have family on the coast.
More information from CNN today about the IMAX release:
"Clones" thus becomes the second live action re-release to be scheduled for Imax re-formatting since company unveiled a proprietary conversion process in March. An Imax version of Universal/Imagine's "Apollo 13" bows September 20 in 22 locations.
Snyder plans to unspool "Clones" in about 50 Imax commercial venues in the U.S. and Canada, and another 20-30 Imax theaters based in science museums and other institutions. Executives believe the picture could add at least $20 million to its current $300 million-plus domestic total. There are no plans to distribute the Imax version of "Clones" internationally.
The Imax-format "Clones" is expected to run about seven weeks, set just after "Apollo" and before "The Lion King." The Mouse House has its own process for converting cartoons into Imax format and plans to release its upcoming "Treasure Planet" simultaneously in conventional and giant-screen theaters in November.
**No word yet which IMAX theatres will have AOTC.
*keeps fingers crossed* C'mon Fresno!! Do something cool for once!!!
fresno sucks. always has. always will.
More news on IMAX release today. They are going to cut 23 minutes from AOTC in order to put the movie into IMAX form. What scenes do you think they will cut? And do you think this will interfere with the storyline of the film?
that blows, well i'm still going to see it when i go to vegas over thanksgiving!
It's been awhile since I checked the avatars available! M_J_F, there are about 3 new Mara icons---Not sure if you want to use one.
DSGeorge, I've got the perfect one for you:
BTW, Very nice avatar Jirin !!!
I may have to take that Fisto Icon!!
I am glad you liked it, dude.
There is another cool one, I ALMOST had to choose it, based on it being representative of one of my favorite darkside moments in SW history:
i heard that the 23 minutes of cut footage will not take away from the storyline.
