Universal’s Fast & Furious first to use D-BOX Motion Code technology


MUMBAI: D-BOX Technologies Inc. announced that the release of Universal Pictures’ action-thriller Fast & Furious on 3 April 2009, will represent the first theatrical feature to use its D-BOX Motion Code technology.

With Fast & Furious, D-BOX will introduce theatrical moviegoers to the added dimension of realistic D-BOX motion effects, providing an innovative and immersive experience. For the release of Fast & Furious, D-BOX will have two theaters deployed with exclusive viewing areas that are equipped with special D-BOX-enhanced seating.

"We are very proud to showcase our immersive D-BOX Motion Code technology with ‘Fast & Furious’ from Universal. This will be a first for moviegoers as they will be able to not only watch the movie, but also feel the action like never before in a commercial theatre environment," stated Claude Mc Master, president and chief executive officer of D-BOX Technologies.

The Fast & Furious D-BOX motion experience will be available at the Mann Chinese 6 in Hollywood, CA, and at the UltraStar Surprise Pointe 14 in Surprise, AZ. Additionally, a D-BOX demonstration kiosk will be installed in each theater’s lobby prior to the "Fast & Furious" release, giving patrons the opportunity to test drive D-BOX’s immersive movie experience.

In "Fast & Furious", Vin Diesel and Paul Walker reteam for the ultimate chapter of the franchise built on speed. Heading back to the streets where it all began, they rejoin Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster to blast muscle, tuner and exotic cars across Los Angeles and floor through the Mexican desert in the new high-octane action-thriller.

When a crime brings them back to L.A., fugitive ex-con Dom Toretto (Diesel) reignites his feud with agent Brian O’Conner (Walker). But as they are forced to confront a shared enemy, Dom and Brian must give in to an uncertain new trust if they hope to outmaneuver him. And from convoy heists to precision tunnel crawls across international lines, two men will find the best way to get revenge: push the limits of what’s possible behind the wheel.
