incremental distribution platform over the last 10 years," said Dan Fellman, 
President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. "We are excited to 
continue this tradition and offer these films to audiences in the most premium 
of moviegoing experiences." 
"The IMAX footprint continues to expand with tremendous success around the 
world," said Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President, International Distribution, 
Warner Bros. Pictures.  "We are very pleased to be presenting our 2013 and 
future slate in this premium theatrical environment." 
"Our longstanding partnership with Warner Bros. has resulted in extraordinary 
experiences for IMAX audiences, and we're excited to add these core additional 
titles to our upcoming film slate," said Richard L. Gelfond, CEO of IMAX. "The
