Star Wars fans have another big reason to get excited for the latest installment.

The upcoming sequel, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, will be in every IMAX screen in North America and in most other countries for the first month of its release. The film is set to come out on Dec. 18.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the latest Star Wars film is expected to open on around 375 to 400 Imax screens domestically and on over 400 screens in foreign countries.

This is not the first time all IMAX screens have been reserved for a single film. THR reports that a similar scenario occurred for the Hobbit movies.
