At the end of last month, we found out that a 3D version of Michael Jackson‘s iconic music video Thriller would be coming to theaters around the United States and Canada for the first time ever, thanks to the folks at IMAX. Now we have a teaser for the big screen debut of the music video that changed MTV forever.
… Thriller was remastered from the original 35mm negative last year and converted into 3D. On top of that, all of the audio from Michael Jackson’s music, and even the sound effects, were adapted to 5.7, 7.1 and Dolby Atmos standards.
… Thriller will be playing exclusively in IMAX theaters in the United States and Canada ahead of showings of the upcoming family friendly horror adventure The House with a Clock in Its Walls.
… When Thriller first debuted in 1983, it only played at AVCO Theatre in Los Angeles where it was sold out for three weeks straight.
… A teaser for the IMAX release came out over the weekend
