SCOOP: Beast Fails to Get a Release on IMAX Screens Due to KGF – Chapter 2 and Fantastic Beasts
Beast achieved a wide rollout not only in Tamil Nadu but outside the home state as well. Now it came to light that there were plans to launch Beast on additional screens. a source said Bollywood Hungary“The film’s producers wanted to play Beast on IMAX screens in India. The norm is to convert a movie to the IMAX version and then release it in IMAX theaters. In case of Beast, the plan was to play the film on large IMAX screens without converting it. Many movies have been released this way when IMAX screens are not playing any IMAX compatible movies.”

It has been converted to IMAX and has been pre-booked on IMAX screens. And looking at the hype, it was scheduled to be played at every show at those theaters.”

Even that couldn’t happen, as Warner Bros. has reserved all IMAX screens until April 13 for their fantasy movie. Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets. It was released from the night of April 7th onwards. Knowing that KGF – Chapter 2 will fill IMAX screens before a week’s completion, Warner was convinced that they will want their film to be shown in IMAX by April 13th. As a result, the IMAX plan was abandoned to Beast.”
