Paramount is pulling out all the stops with its upcoming reboot of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. The film will be featured in the audience immersive 4DX.
You won’t just watch the movie, you’ll live it, complete with rain, fog, scents, rumbling seats, and actual corpses coming back to life! Okay I made that last part up, but you never know. While 4DX tends to be reserved more for big, loud, special-effects driven blockbusters, Paramount must be confident that a totally immersive sensory experience is going to make the new Pet Semataryeven more terrifying.
A 4DX screening “allows a motion picture presentation to be augmented with environmental effects such as seat motion, wind, rain, lights, and scents along with the standard video and audio.”
Mark Viane, President of International Theatrical Distribution at Paramount Pictures, said (via Bloody Disgusting):
“We can’t wait to share…Pet Sematary with audiences everywhere in 4DX theatres this year, and expand our partnership with CJ 4DPLEX…Paramount Pictures is always looking to create new and engaging experiences for audiences, and we are excited to utilize new technologies like 4DX to showcase great stories in unique new ways.”
Pet Sematary opens April 5, 2019.
