Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of Gods™ Rolls Into IMAX® Digital Theatres Across 
Japan Starting March 30 
Marks First Japanese Film to Debut in IMAX® 
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 5, 2013 /CNW/ - IMAX Corporation (NYSE: IMAX; TSX: IMX) and 
Toei Company Ltd. today announced that  Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods will be 
digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX®  format and released to 
IMAX(®) Digital theatres in Japan starting March 30. The film marks the 
first-ever Japanese movie to be released in IMAX(®) as well as the first 
movie installment in Akira Toriyama's iconic Dragon Ball franchise in 17 years.

Toriyama, highly influential in manga animation and known for his playful, 
influential storytelling and distinctive art style, has been involved with the 
development of the screenplay and the production for this latest feature. He 
has delivered a completely new original story that is focused on the period 
between the "Z" and "GT" Dragon Ball animated series – or, more 
specifically, between installments 517 and 518 of the Dragon Ball comic book 
series, filling the 10-year story lapse after Demon Boo is defeated. 
"We're proud to be partnering with a pioneering manga creator like Akira 
Toriyoma to release the latest installment of this beloved franchise and our 
first Japanese film in IMAX," said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX 
Entertainment. "With its fast-paced battle sequences and stunning visuals, we 
believe Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods is an ideal fit for The IMAX 
Experience(®)." 
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods will be digitally re-mastered into the image and 
sound quality of The IMAX Experience(®) with proprietary IMAX DMR(®) 
(Digital Re-mastering) technology for presentation in IMAX(®). The 
crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and 
powerful digital audio, create a unique immersive environment that will make 
audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
