Episode II Gets IMAX Treatment

"Episode II" is returning to theaters in an engorged form. StarWars.com says the film will reappear on select IMAX screens in the United States and Canada beginning Nov. 1 -- a date that corresponds shockingly well with the film's Nov. 12 DVD release. Funny how it works out that way.

It's not unusual for a blockbuster to receive a second run on large screens, but "Episode II" differs because the entire film has been transferred to the IMAX format. This means George Lucas' collection of unnecessary digital creatures and wooden acting can cover all eight stories of an IMAX screen. It also means Yoda can singlehandedly save the film in a bigger, badder way.
