LOS ANGELES , Aug. 22 (UPI) -- An IMAX version of the summer Hollywood blockbuster "Transformers" is slated to hit theaters next month.

IMAX, DreamWorks and Paramount Pictures have announced that the movie will be digitally re-mastered into IMAX's immersive giant-screen format and released to IMAX theaters on Sept. 21.

The Michael Bay-directed movie has already generated $310 million in gross domestic box-office receipts since its premiere in conventional theaters on July 3.

"IMAX's all-encompassing format takes 'Transformers' to a whole new level of detail and intensity," Bay said in a statement. "I am very excited to work with the team at IMAX to create this turbo-charged version."

"As fans of 'Transformers' await the release of the DVD in the fall, they will have a brand new way to experience the adventure -- as if they are actually part of the movie," added IMAX Co-Chairmen and Co-CEOs Richard L. Gelfond and Bradley J. Wechsler.

"The images and sound in 'Transformers' are perfectly suited to The IMAX Experience and we are very excited to share the IMAX version with the film's present and future fans."
