Marvel's Inhumans' television series heads to IMAX and ABC this fall

Bred by an alien race to be a warrior caste and possessing alien DNA, the Inhumans exist as humans possessed of incredible and otherworldly powers when exposed to the substance known as Terrigen. Living secretly, for the most part, among their fellow man, the Inhumans forge their own destiny as a separate society and sometimes even Earth’s protectors. The Royal Family of the Inhumans guides their people as well as sets standards and laws by which they live.

This September, “Marvel’s Inhumans” will explores the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city.

It was previously announced that a version of the first two episodes, shot entirely with IMAX® cameras, will premiere exclusively in IMAX® theatres for a two-week window beginning September 1, 2017, prior to the ABC network television run.
