Venom, James Bond, Dune coming to IMAX

The Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater will continue its slate of feature films this fall. Two of the movies will offer content enhancements available only to IMAX viewers.

The theater’s action-filled fall slate began Thursday, Sept. 30 with a one-week run of “Venom: Let There Be Carnage.”

“No Time To Die,” the latest installment of the James Bond franchise starring Daniel Craig as British secret agent 007, will follow less than a week later, Wednesday, Oct. 6.

Director Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel “Dune” will wrap up the blockbuster hat trick when it arrives on the theater’s six-story screen Thursday, Oct. 21.

In the sequel to 2018’s “Venom,” Tom Hardy reprises his role as reporter Eddie Brock, who serves as the host for the symbiote, an alien parasite that gives him a suite of powerful but violent abilities.

This time, Brock finds himself inadvertently responsible for birthing Carnage, an even deadlier super-villainous foe portrayed by Woody Harrelson.

Golden Globe nominee Andy Serkis directed the film, which co-stars Naomie Harris, Stephen Graham and Michelle Williams.

In “No Time to Die,” Bond has left active duty for a relaxing retirement in Jamaica. After a surprise visit by CIA operative Felix Leiter, 007 finds himself pulled into Her Majesty’s Secret Service to track down a kidnapped scientist and a villain named Lyutsifer Safin.

“No Time to Die” is Craig’s final film playing Bond.

In “Dune,” the family of Paul Atreides has been entrusted with safeguarding the most valuable resource in the galaxy: spice. When the deadly political machinations of a rival house plunge his empire into chaos, Paul and his mother, Jessica, must learn to survive.

“Dune” features an all-star cast that includes Oscar Isaac and Zendaya as well as action movie veterans Jason Momoa, Dave Bautista and Josh Brolin.

“No Time to Die” and “Dune” incorporate exclusive content created with the latest IMAX cameras and designed to be viewed on a giant screen.

“’Dune’ was dreamed up and shot with IMAX in mind,” says Villeneuve in an interview with Deadline. “We designed the movie to be as immersive as possible, and for me, the big screen is part of the language.”

The Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater’s laser projection system features two 4K projectors and 12-channel audio.
