The 3D version of the 14-minute film debuted at last year’s Venice Film Festival. Director John Landis helped oversee a 3D conversion of the original 35mm film negative.
The audio in the music video, meanwhile, was adapted to 5.7, 7.1 and Dolby Atmos standards. IMAX then remastered the film for the upcoming re-release.
