THE MAZE RUNNER May Play In New Tri-Screen Format

THE MAZE RUNNER will be hitting big screens in September, but it also may be coming out in new tri-screen format, Fox executive announced at CinemaCon.

As the name suggests, the new system uses two additional side screens to fully immerse the audience in the maze.

Gagliano sees creative potential, and the format was applied to the clip from The Maze Runner to convey the scale of the maze; but it’s easy to see that this could quickly fall into the “gimmick” category if not used with the story in mind.

The Fox exec related that a movie could be lensed with the three screens in mind. Alternatively, a sort of post conversion process could be applied. He admitted that this format might not be something for an entire movie but perhaps for select scenes.
