Singer Selects 3-D for "Superman Returns"

Spectacular 3-D segments from Warners upcoming live-action "Superman Returns", based on the DC Comics character, is now set to play in IMAX movie theaters:

Toronto-based IMAX and the Warners studio said they plan to feature 20 minutes of the film in three dimensions when it opens theatrically late June, marking the first live-action, 3-D movie ever on the giant IMAX movie screens.

IMAX enjoyed a strong year by screening big-budget features on eight story screens.

The company said that "Superman Returns" director Bryan Singer personally chose segments of the film to show in 3-D.

A visual cue will be given to audiences to put on special glasses, when the 3-D segments are screened.

"Superman Returns" opens June 30, 2006.
