“ScreenX is a visually beautiful and immersive format that transcends the traditional cinema and movie theatre experience,” says 20th Century Fox’s Andrew Cripps in a statement. “We’re looking forward to the second installment of the Kingsman franchise to debut in the 270-degree viewing format, and anticipate our fans around the globe to be astonished and immersed in the best way possible.” ScreenX was developed by the Korean company CJ and is much more common in Seoul and Busan than it is here.
