Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’ To Open With Expanded Aspect Ratio On Imax – Meaning A Bigger Picture

Imax announced Monday that Marvel Studios’ Black Widow — set for released by Disney July 9, will debut with 22 minutes of select scenes in expanded aspect ratio exclusively in Imax.

The Scarlett Johansson-starrer is the first new movie in “Phase Four” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the first new Marvel Studios theatrical release since 2019.

The firm is directed by Cate Shortland, produced by Kevin Feige and also stars Florence Pugh, David Harbour, and Rachel Weisz.

With several scenes specially formatted exclusively for Imax theatres, film fans can experience it on the oversized screen at 1.90:1 aspect ratio – showing up to 26% more of the onscreen image.

Aspect ratio is the technical term for the proportional relationship between an image’s width and height. Imax said most films are presented in an aspect ratio called CinemaScope (2.40:1) which is why they appear very wide but not very high. IMAX provides filmmakers with the ability to use an expanded aspect ratio – allowing them to use more of the original image. Watching a film with an expanded aspect ratio provides audiences with a full immersive view that fills the peripheral vision more than any other cinematic experience.
