Marvel’s Inhumans – a new television series exploring the never-before-told epic journey of Black Bolt and the Royal Family, will be brought to life in a way that has never been done when a version of the first two episodes, shot entirely with IMAX® cameras, premieres exclusively in IMAX® at Ster-Kinekor IMAX® theatres beginning 1 September. It will then premiere on M-Net channel 101 on 30 September and run for eight episodes.
Taking such a cinematic and immersive approach to a television series has never been done to this degree, with Marvel’s Inhumans director Roel Reinè using IMAX® cameras to take full advantage of the scale and scope of the IMAX canvas. In IMAX theatres, Marvel’s Inhumans will be presented in its entirety in an expanded IMAX 1.9:1 aspect ratio – offering moviegoers 26% more of the image than normal – for a truly immersive experience.
The IMAX release of Marvel’s Inhumans has been designed and customized to take full advantage of The IMAX Experience, with crystal-clear images, powerful digital audio and customized theatre geometry.
What’s it all about anyway?
Marvel’s Inhumans is ABC’s third Marvel television series, following Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Marvel’s Agent Carter. The plot follows the story of the Inhuman Royal Family’s escape to Hawaii after a military coup, where they are greeted with surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them. Now they must find a way to reunite with each other and return to their home before their way of life is destroyed forever.
The series stars:
Anson Mount as Black Bolt – The enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city
Serinda Swan as Medusa – Queen of the Inhumans and wife of Black Bolt — his most trusted advisor, a fiercely resilient warrior who has the ability to move and control her hair the way most people use their hands and fingers.
Iwan Rheon as Maximus – The clever and charming Inhuman that is fiercely devoted to the people of Attilan, especially his brother, the King – although he harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself.
Ken Leung as Karnak – Cousin and closest advisor to Black Bolt. His gift is an ability to see the fault in all things – people, plans, structures, everything. He’s Black Bolt’s most ardent supporter and strategist and is often seen as the royal family’s planner and philosopher.
Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon – Cousin of Black Bolt, member of the Royal family, and leader of Attilan’s military. With super strong legs, complete with hooves, he can generate destructive seismic waves with a single stomp makes him a force to be reckoned with among Inhumans. The yin to his cousin Karnak’s yang, Gorgon would rather fight than talk to solve his problems.
Isabelle Cornish as Crystal – Medusa’s sister, Crystal, is the youngest member of the Royal family and has the ability to control the four elements of fire, earth, water and air. Impetuous and independent, she is also deeply devoted to her family.
Mike Moh as Triton – Black Bolt’s cousin, he’s calm under pressure and supremely athletic. His gift is his fish-like ability to live underwater.
Sonya Balmores as Auran – Head of the Royal Guards on Attilan, a capable and no-nonsense woman. She is fiercely loyal to the King of Attilan.
Ellen Woglom as Louise – A smart, intense, and focused woman. Her job at a private aerospace company is her life, second only to her passion for all things space and lunar.
