Speed Racer – 後楽園で巨大試写会


Having heard about giant IMAX screen premier of Speed Racer, I decided to go to see it. 40m x 17.5m screen was brought from UK and some 7 cranes were sitting to support it in Tokyo Dome. When the movie started, the focus was way out and it did not lock on for 20 or 30 minutes. While I wonder “Is this because the screen is excessively large? What to do with the artistic images by Wachowski brothers?”, the focus was gradually corrected. I would ask IMAX friend about this detail. Anyway, from the seat fairly close to the screen watching popping and jumping images, I did not feel so tired, and the movie was a simple story of good guy v.s. bad guy, but still very enjoyable.
