What is Barco Escape?
Simply stated, Barco Escape is an ultra-widescreen format that projects a film across three stitched-together screens that wraps around the front of the theater, delivering a more panoramic and immersive experience.
Star Trek Beyond was shot for traditional theatrical exhibition, so Bad Robot has retrofitted the film to accommodate the wider format.
“Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond is an epic adventure — truly larger than life,” said producer and Bad Robot president J.J. Abrams in a press release. “It is especially fitting, then, that we are partnering with Barco to provide an ultra wide-screen immersive experience using their unique Barco Escape format. This premium format dramatically expands the width of the viewing plane, giving filmmakers an innovative new tool with which to tell stories and audiences an enhanced new way to experience cinema.”
Barco Escape will illuminate the Star Trek universe by creating key “moments” across all three screens that will exhilarate fans. Bad Robot has re-mastered more than 20 minutes of “Star Trek Beyond” into the new format. As part of Bad Robot’s commitment to the innovative technology, an executive from the company will also join Barco Escape’s advisory board.
