'Iron Man 3' to Become First Film to Play in 4DX Format in Japan

Iron Man 3 will be the first film released in 4DX in Japan
The film will be shown with tilting seats, blowing wind and fog and odor effects via technology that is expected to come to the U.S. this year.


TOKYO -- Iron Man 3 will be shown from April 26 in 4DX at a theater in Nagoya, central Japan, operated by the Korona World chain, which plans to screen 12 titles a year using the new format.

“It was really a matter of timing that Iron Man became the first title for 4DX in Japan, though we were looking for a blockbuster action film, as that is what works best with the system,” Tagiki Ishiguro, a spokesperson for Korona World, told The Hollywood Reporter.


The 4DX system is already in use in theaters in China, South Korea, Thailand, Russia, Mexico, Israel and a number of countries in South America. The first film to be shown in the format was Avatar in 2009, in Seoul, where the company behind the system, CJ Group is headquartered.

“The programming for the various effects is done in advance by CJ,” explained Ishiguro, who said that Korona World was currently negotiating with Hollywood and Japanese studios on the next 4DX releases.

CJ Group is reported to be moving ahead with plans to bring 4DX to the U.S. this year, with a view to equipping 200 theaters over the coming five years.
