Corin Hardy‘s highly-anticipated horror film The Nun will soon arrive in theaters nationwide. But that’s not all, The Nun will also open in select theaters that will offer viewers an incredible experience unlike any other.
The Nun will mark the first Hollywood film to be released in the panoramic ScreenX format. The gothic, atmospheric world of the film will be enhanced by the side walls of the auditorium, encompassing the audience with extended imagery, adding an additional layer of fear and suspense.
ScreenX is the world’s first multi-projection theatre technology that provides moviegoers with a 270-degree panoramic viewing experience of a feature film by expanding the screen onto the side walls of the auditorium during key scenes. With ScreenX, moviegoers will experience Hollywood blockbusters in a unique and immersive way that brings them beyond the frame and into the film.
ScreenX was created in 2012 by CJ CGV, part of South Korean conglomerate CJ Group, as one of the company’s industry-changing “next cinema formats,” alongside 4DX, the global leader in multisensory cinema technology with motion and environmental effects.
As of August 2018, ScreenX has been installed at 152 locations around the world, including 84 screens in South Korea; 46 in China; 5 in the United States; 4 in Turkey; 3 in Switzerland; 2 in England; 2 in France; 2 in Vietnam; and 1 each in UAE, Thailand, Japan, and Indonesia. Among the 5 U.S. locations include the largest ScreenX screen in the world (located in the Kansas City market), 3 in southern California, 1 in Las Vegas, and many more coming soon.
The Nun will be available at 129 ScreenX locations worldwide as of September 7, 2018.
New Line Cinema’s terrifying film, The Nun, explores another dark corner of the Conjuring universe, whose record-setting films have terrified audiences around the globe.
Directed by Corin Hardy (“The Hallow”) and produced by James Wan, and Peter Safran, the latter of whom has produced all the films in The Conjuring franchise, delves into the shocking origin of the demonic Nun Valak, who first made her evil presence known in The Conjuring 2.
“When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in The Conjuring 2, as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned.
The Nun stars Oscar nominated Demian Bichir (A Better Life) as Father Burke, Taissa Farmiga (TV’s American Horror Story) as Sister Irene, and Jonas Bloquet (Elle) as local villager Frenchie. The cast also includes Charlotte Hope (TV’s Game of Thrones) as the abbey’s Sister Victoria, Ingrid Bisu (Toni Erdmann) as Sister Oana, and Bonnie Aarons, reprising her Conjuring 2 role as the title character.”
Hardy directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman (It), story by James Wan & Gary Dauberman. Richard Brener, Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear and Todd Williams are the executive producers. Joining Hardy behind the scenes are director of photography Maxime Alexandre (The Voices, Annabelle: Creation), production designer Jennifer Spence (Annabelle: Creation, Lights Out, the Insidious films), editors Michel Aller (Lights Out, Paranormal Activity: Ghost Dimension) and Ken Blackwell (Ouija, Friday the 13th), and costume designer Sharon Gilham (TV’s Black Mirror).  The music is by Abel Korzeniowski (Nocturnal Animals).
New Line Cinema presents The Nunan Atomic Monster / Safran Company production, opening in theaters beginning September 7, 2018, the film from Warner Bros. Pictures. The Nun has been rated R for terror, violence, and disturbing/bloody images.
