Superheroes Made Real In 4DX

THOR: RAGNAROK, JUSTICE LEAGUE and STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI releasing in Nu Metro multi-sensory 4DX cinemas nationwide over the next two months

Nu Metro Cinemas has an impressive slate of movies lined up for their multi-sensory 4DX theatres nationwide for the remainder of 2017. THOR: RAGNAROK, JUSTICE LEAGUE and STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI are the blockbusters destined to make the earth move at the 4DX box office.

4DX makes superheroes come to life, and pushes the cinema experience to ground-breaking new levels of “real”. No other cinema format or experience provides a more immersive or realistic portrayal of what it feels like to be a superhero than the next-generation 4DX cinema format.

The latest superhero blockbuster from Marvel Studios, THOR: RAGNAROK, started showing in 4DX from this past Friday, 27 October 2017. 4DX’s high-tech motion seats and special environmental effects are tailor-made to amplify one of the world’s most popular big screen-characters to maximum effect, making moviegoers join the action-packed fight between good and evil on an epic scale (and in a different dimension).

Experience the power of Thor’s infamous hammer as it whizzes past moviegoers in the 4DX theatre. ‘Tilt and rotate’ effects are enabled through the motion seats in tandem with other effects (wind, fog, face water, strobe, vibrations, scent, side air, back kickers and lots more) to create point-of-view movie experiences from the hammer’s perspective.

Nu Metro has also confirmed that bookings for DC Comics’ JUSTICE LEAGUE have been opened. This highly-anticipated superhero showcase combines the forces of Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash on a scale never seen before. JUSTICE LEAGUE starts showing in Nu Metro’s 4DX theatres from 17 November.

As announced previously, Nu Metro pre-bookings are also already open for the 15 December global release of STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI (including special pre-release screenings on 14 December) – which will be Nu Metro’s tentpole release in 4DX for the holiday season.
