The upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows will have a one-week run in IMAX 3D theaters kicking off on June 2, 2016. The action film will be digitally remastered into the IMAX format, according to the announcement by Paramount Pictures, Nickelodeon Movies and IMAX Corporation. Directed by Dave Green from a script by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec, the new TMNT movie stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Laura Linney, Stephen Amell, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, Alan Ritchson, Brian Tee and Tyler Perry. The live-action Turtles film is based on the characters created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, with Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, Galen Walker, and Scott Mednick producing.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is a fun fit for The IMAX Experience® with its larger-than-life effects and high-octane action, and we are pleased to partner again with our long-time friend Michael Bay and the whole team at Paramount in offering this film to domestic audiences in IMAX 3D,” said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment.

The Plot: Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo return to theaters this summer in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows to battle bigger, badder villains alongside April O’Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). After super villain Shredder (Brian Tee) escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE Superstar “Sheamus”), to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: the notorious Krang.
