Paramount Pictures has partnered with IMAX® on a first-of-its-kind Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 (DK2) experience for Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated “INTERSTELLAR” film.
The Oculus Rift DK2 traveling exhibit gives fans a virtual first look at the new film through an immersive experience at select AMC Theatre locations featuring IMAX screens.
The tour kicks off in New York, with stops in Houston and Los Angeles, before landing at the Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center. Users in these cities will sit down, strap in, and travel in the film’s Endurance spacecraft in zero gravity with a custom Oculus Rift DK2.
I had the opportunity to experience myself at New York’s AMC Lincoln Square Theater and it was a really unique experience! This 4-D experience is like being an Astronaut on a space shuttle mission, the visuals are simply breathtaking, so incredibly realistic that I myself felt a sense of weightlessness. I totally recommend folks to experience this and the best part is that it’s free!
“INTERSTELLAR” opens with advance screenings in IMAX® 70mm film, 70mm film and 35mm film formats on Wednesday, November 5th, two days ahead of its nationwide release.
