Industry newspaper Variety says this will mean a 6am start for fans in Los Angeles, 9am in New York, 2pm in London, 5pm in Moscow and 11pm in Tokyo on November 5.

enjoy the thrilling kung fu action that this film promises."
"I mean has," he added. "Not promises. Has. Thrilling."

zero hour! Hora Cero!... Please don't fire me," he concluded.

the same day as standard cinemas, thus fulfilling the second sign of the impending apocalypse.
Imax Corporation, which owns the technology behind the format, struck a deal with Warner Bros
and the devil to simultaneously show the film on 5 November.
It will be the first time a Hollywood blockbuster has been released in two formats at the same
time for the different-sized screens.
Imax offers both 2D and Imax 3D images on curved screens up to 10 storeys high, using the
latest film technology.
The Matrix Reloaded opened in Imax cinemas three weeks after its general release earlier this
year. Imax Corporation offered its sincerest apologies regarding its part in helping bring
about the end of the world.
