Furthering The IMAX Experience, select scenes in Lucy were captured using IMAX cameras. Those sequences filmed with the extremely high-resolution cameras will add to the explosive action and scope of the film as seen best in IMAX theaters.
Here's what IMAX CEO Greg Foster had to say in a statement.
Director Luc Besson also released a statement about the scenes he shot with IMAX cameras.
The IMAX release of Lucy will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson and Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman in Lucy, an action-thriller that examines the possibility of what one human could truly do if she unlocked 100 percent of her brain capacity and accessed the furthest reaches of her mind.
