The IMAX Dome motion picture system projects images of unsurpassed size, clarity, and impact onto a dome-shaped screen providing 10,500 square feet of visual imagery. The IMAX Dome image is ten times larger than a conventional 35mm frame and three times larger than a standard 70mm frame. The sheer size of the film frame, combined with the unique projection technology, is the key to the extraordinary sharpness and clarity of an IMAX film.
Audiences will be “infected” with thrills and chills with I Am Legend, which has been digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (digital re-mastering) technology.
Robert Neville (Will Smith) is a brilliant scientist, but even he could not contain the terrible virus that was unstoppable, incurable, and man-made. Somehow immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New York City and maybe the world.
For three years, Neville has faithfully sent out daily radio messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there. But he is not alone. Mutant victims of the plague—The Infected—lurk in the shadows … watching Neville’s every move … waiting for him to make a fatal mistake.
Perhaps mankind’s last, best hope, Neville is driven by only one remaining mission: to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus using his own immune blood. But he knows he is outnumbered … and quickly running out of time.
