'American Sniper' Getting Unnecessary Run on IMAX Screens Too

Briefly: With American Sniper getting recognized by the Producers Guild and Writers Guild with nominees in both of the guilds' awards, it looks like Warner Bros. Pictures wants to capitalize on the buzz (even though the film doesn't have any Golden Globe nominations). The studio just announced that the film starring Bradley Cooper will be getting an IMAX release simultaneously when it hits regular theaters next week on January 16th. But let me say, that this is not a film that needs to be seen on the IMAX screen, and it's not even all that great of a movie in general. It's far from terrible, but it's just not very good. Moreover, there's nothing technically impressive to warrant an IMAX screening if you truly must see it in theaters.
