Game of Thrones (large banner)

HBO's hit fantasy series 'Game of Thrones' is to be screened at IMAX cinemas this month ahead of the new series.

IMAX cinemas will screen the last two episodes from series four – 'The Watchers on the Wall' and 'The Children' – and a trailer for series five from 23-29 January. Series five is set to air in the spring.  "The cinematic brilliance and grand scope of the series is perfect for the IMAX format," Pamela Levine, HBO's chief marketing officer, said in a statement. "We are always looking to provide fans with new and exciting ways to experience the show, and viewing two key episodes, along with the new trailer, on such an impressive platform makes for a great event."

IMAX CEO Richard Gelfond added: "IMAX always seeks innovative ways to provide moviegoers a unique and differentiated experience and today's partnership with HBO and 'Game of Thrones' achieves just that.

"This deal also furthers our efforts to offer exhibitors the opportunity to participate in alternative forms of content in a new and exciting way."

'Game of Thrones' was the most pirated show of 2014. Season five is expected to start in April, right around the time that the series' broadcaster HBO will launch its own streaming service.
