9 Aug - Adrian Teh's "MALBATT: Misi Bakara" will be the first-ever Malaysian movie to be shown on IMAX screens at selected GSC cinemas nationwide, the company announced.
Providing movie-goers with an unparalled cinematic experience, "MALBATT: Misi Bakara" has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with the proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) process, complete with crystal-clear images from IMAX's customised theatre geometry and powerful digital audio.
Based on true historical events of the Battle of Mogadishu in Somalia, "MALBATT: Misi Bakara" tells the untold yet inspiring story of our nation's unsung heroes, the Malaysian Battalion who prevailed in times of courage to rescue American soldiers that were trapped following the Black Hawk Down attack.
"GSC has played a pivotal role in driving the local film industry through investing in homegrown film productions and providing movie-enthusiasts with enhanced cinematic experiences through our unique USPs, including IMAX. Showcasing MALBATT: Misi Bakara as the first locally-produced movie remastered in IMAX is a milestone for GSC, and reiterates our commitment in elevating the local film landscape," said Ms. Koh Mei Lee, Chief Executive Officer, Golden Screen Cinemas.
An action-packed tale of war and fast-paced scenes, "MALBATT: Misi Bakara" is a movie not to be missed in IMAX, offering movie-goers with a greater, more immersive cinematic experience. Taking action movies to the next level, IMAX's seamless audio and visual clarity reimagines the war-torn landscape and evokes powerful emotions to life on the big screen.
"The release of MALBATT: Misi Bakara remastered on IMAX is a visionary dream come true on the silver screen, it is a new milestone for a local movie. I'm thrilled for the audience to be able to enjoy this movie at the best possible format we can provide," said director Adrian Teh.
