Get ready to pay that extra premium price for Marvel Studios’ upcoming film Black Panther. IMAX has announced that the film will have scenes that are specially formatted for IMAX.

Here’s what they had to say in their press release:

“This means that Director Ryan Coogler designed several sequences of the movie to fill more of the screen at an expanded IMAX 1.9:1 aspect ratio, providing fans with 26% more of the image in IMAX than standard theatres.”

In short, you’ll be seeing a lot more image on screen, and will be getting more of an immersive experience than on a normal screen. Not sold? Well, you can take a look at the image below and judge for yourself if that premium price is worth it.

“After the events of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, King T’Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country’s new leader. However, T’Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakanadan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.”
