New Star Wars film has grossed more than $100 million in Imax theaters

Dec 28, 2015 14:57:00 (ET)

Imax Corp. (IMAX) said Monday the new Star Wars film has surpassed the $100 million mark in its first 12 days on release, setting a record pace of attendance. The previous record was held by "Jurassic World," which crossed the same milestone in 18 days. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" grossed $27.2 million in its second weekend, with $18.6 million coming from 391 Imax locations in the U.S., and another $8.6 million stemming from 282 Imax theaters overseas. Imax shares were slightly lower in afternoon trade, but are up 17% in the year, while the S&P 500 has fallen 0.2%.

UPDATE: IMAX's stock drops as 'Star Wars' hype fades

4:09 PM ET 12/21/15 | MarketWatch

By Tomi Kilgore, MarketWatch

IMAX's stock may be following the Wall Street adage 'buy the rumor, sell the news'

Shares of IMAX Corp. stock dropped Monday, as did other "Star Wars" theater stocks, as the movie's record box-office take plus upbeat analyst comments failed to generate new interest among investors.

IMAX's stock (IMAX) slid 4.2% trade on volume that FactSet data show was more than double the full-day average, to close at the lowest level since Oct. 14.

The stock suffered although "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" produced a record global weekend for the movie-theater company, including opening-weekend records for both domestic-and international openings.

J.P. Morgan analyst Alexia Quadrani said IMAX's domestic market share for the weekend was an "impressive" 12.6%, and that the movie's opening in China early next month would be a significant contributor to results given IMAX's large presence in the world's second-largest box-office market.

Analyst Eric Handler at MKM Partners said per-screen average for "Star Wars" showings at IMAX theaters was nearly $77,000, the highest total ever for the company. "The bar was set high for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and the film delivered in setting a new opening weekend record...and beating forecasts," Handler wrote in a research note.

There are a few reasons why the stock may be suffering in the fact of a strong "Star Wars" performance:

1) This old Wall Street adage: "Buy the rumor, sell the news." That describes the tendency of many investors to buy a stock if they believe good news is coming, then to cash in their bets when the good news arrives. The bigger the hype, the harder the stocks fall.

IMAX's stock soared 17% from the end of September through Dec. 16, the day before the movie opened, while the S&P 500 index gained 8% over the same time.

2) Although the "Star Wars" blowout opening weekend pushed quarter-to-date box-office revenue growth into positive territory compared with a year earlier, the company's overall fourth-quarter box office continues to track below consensus expectations of 10% to 12% growth, MKM's Handler said.

"In our view, the box office is more likely to finish up (DIS) in the 4%-6% range," Handler wrote in a note to clients.

3) Walt Disney Co., which owns the "Star Wars" franchise, may be charging theaters ("exhibitors" in Wall Street lingo) more than usual to be able to show the movie.

IMAX Scores Record-Shattering Opening Weekend Box Office With Star Wars: The Force Awakens Grossing $48 Million In IMAX(R) Theatres Worldwide

3:21 PM ET 12/21/15 | PR Newswire

IMAX Corporation (NYSE:IMAX) today announced that Star Wars: The Force Awakens, released by The Walt Disney Studios, scored a record-setting opening weekend in IMAX(R) theatres with $48 million worldwide on 677 screens (excluding China), making it the Company's best-ever weekend at the global box office, beating Jurassic World's $44.1 million worldwide opening (which included China). The previous worldwide box-office record holder in IMAX - without China - was Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron, which earned $25.2 million during its opening weekend globally. Star Wars: The Force Awakens also set various other IMAX records including for both domestic and international openings.

http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20111107/MM01969LOGO

Domestically, Star Wars: The Force Awakens grossed a benchmark $30 million on 391 IMAX screens, of which 359 were record-breaking. The film trounced the previous North American IMAX opening weekend record of $20.9 million (Jurassic World) by roughly 50 percent.

International IMAX results for Star Wars: The Force Awakens reached a record $18 million on 276 IMAX screens - without the benefit of China - more than doubling the previous-best non-China day-and-date release of $8 million (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2). Markets that saw record-setting openings include: U.K., France, Germany, Russia, Japan, the Netherlands, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, South Africa, Italy, Portugal, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand.

The IMAX network was at capacity with sell-out screenings all weekend as the film earned the highest single-day box-office gross for IMAX worldwide on Friday with $17.7 million. The previous best was Jurassic World with $13 million.

"Star Wars has become a global cultural phenomenon, and IMAX has benefitted, with new IMAX records set across our entire worldwide network and China still to come. We only wish we had more seats to meet the demand," said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. "Congratulations to Disney and Lucasfilm - we're extremely proud of the collaboration between our companies, which has resulted not only in this record-setting worldwide opening for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but also in setting the stage for the franchise for years to come. With IMAX effectively playing two Star Wars films per year over the next several years, we believe it will add even greater visibility to our business."

"With numbers like this, it's clear that even casual viewers sought out a premium theatrical experience to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and in a weekend of incredible performances across the board, the folks at IMAX pulled out all the stops for a tremendous, record-setting debut for the format that has gone beyond anything we could've hoped," said Dave Hollis, Executive Vice President, Theatrical Distribution, The Walt Disney Studios.

"We always believed the worldwide opening for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was going to be strong, but these results have exceeded our expectations," said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. "We extend a big congratulations to our friends and long-time partners J.J. Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, Bryan Burk and all of our friends at Disney and Lucasfilm for this phenomenal achievement. The synergy created by fans of the Star Wars franchise, The IMAX Experience(R), and the support of our filmmaker, studio and exhibitor partners has manifested itself in a truly phenomenal way - creating a new cinema paradigm. With stellar reviews, incredibly strong word-of-mouth, and an open runway for many weeks in IMAX, we look forward to the film's continued global success - especially as it broadens to China on Jan. 9 - and elsewhere across our network well into February."

The IMAX(R) 3D release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was shown in its digitally re-mastered format, which includes the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience(R) with proprietary IMAX DMR(R) (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

'Star Wars' to take over Imax for a month
Aug 26 2015, 14:58 ET | By: Jason Aycock
The only "big" thing moviegoers are likely to see over the year-end holidays is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as Disney (DIS +2.1%) sets an exclusive pact to take over every Imax (IMAX +1.5%) screen in North America (and most overseas as well).The deal applies to the first four weeks of the film's run, opening Dec. 18. It's unusual for Imax to set aside every screen this way, but the company had done it before, with the Hobbit movies in a 2011 deal.Rivals with Imax-friendly releases might feel the pressure. Warner's In the Heart of the Sea opens Dec. 11 and will get a week before the exclusive, and Fox's The Revenant opens Jan. 18 and then will try to claw into Imax screens against what might be a juggernaut.November's James Bond sequel Spectre and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2 will clear out of the big-screen format by mid-December

'Jurassic' helps lift IMAX to new all-time high
Jun 15 2015, 16:04 ET | About: IMAX Corporation (IMAX) | By: Clark Schultz, SA News Editor Contact this editor with comments or a news tip

Shares of IMAX (NYSE:IMAX) have drifted higher over the last three days to reach new all-time highs as box office reports came in strong for Jurassic World.

The stock could track even higher after the company issued its own tally late this afternoon.

Jurassic World brought in $44.2M globally in the IMAX format to smash the previous weekend record of $28.8M for Iron Man 3.

The film scored $21M on 363 screens in the U.S. and $23.2M on 443 screens globally including $11.6M from China alone.

IMAX is up 14% over the last month due in part to continued strong response to its format in global markets.

""THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY - PART 2"" SOARS INTO IMAX(R) 3D THEATERS STARTING NOVEMBER 20

Feb 06, 2015 09:00:00 (ET)

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- IMAX Corporation (NYSE: IMAX) and Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF), a premier next generation global content leader, today announced that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2, the next installment of the global blockbuster Hunger Games franchise, will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX(R) format and released in IMAX(R) 3D theaters domestically for the film's November 20(th) rollout.

"I'm thrilled Mockingjay -- Part 2 will be in IMAX theaters," said director Francis Lawrence. "Fans will now have the chance to see the film in any format they want, which is exciting; we recently saw the 3-D version of Mockingjay -- Part 1 before its release in China, and the new level of immersion was really fantastic."

"It's exciting to be back in The Hunger Games world and once again team up with our partners at Lionsgate, director Francis Lawrence and producers Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik on what we believe will be a thrilling, action-packed finale to this blockbuster franchise," said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. "The fan enthusiasm and cultural impact that this series has generated has been truly remarkable and we are thrilled to offer audiences the opportunity to experience the last chapter in IMAX 3D."

The IMAX(R) 3D version of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2 will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience(R) with proprietary IMAX(R) DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

The blockbuster Hunger Games franchise has taken audiences by storm around the world, grossing more than $2.2 billion at the global box office, and it was the #1 movie of the year two years in a row domestically. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2 now brings the franchise to its powerful fourth chapter in which Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) now fully realizes the stakes are no longer just for survival -- they are for the future.

With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends -- including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) -- Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Peter Craig and Danny Strong and features an acclaimed cast including Academy Award(R) -winner Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone with Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland reprising their original roles from The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The impressive lineup is joined by The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1 co-stars five-time Academy Award(R) -nominee Julianne Moore, Mahershala Ali, Natalie Dormer, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Evan Ross.

ABOUT THE HUNGER GAMES

The first three installments of the global blockbuster Hunger Games franchise have grossed more than $2.2 billion at the worldwide box office and counting. The last two installments of The Hunger Games franchise (Catching Fire and Mockingjay -- Part 1) have become the highest-grossing releases at the domestic box office each of the past two years, the first time ever for back-to-back sequels. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire also holds the record as the 10th highest-grossing domestic release of all time.

Based on Suzanne Collins' best-selling trilogy of books which has already sold more than 82 million copies around the world, The Hunger Games franchise continues to expand into exciting new lines of business. Lionsgate will launch a U.S. tour of "The Hunger Games: The Exhibition" in Summer 2015 and is teaming with Imagine Nation to bring The Hunger Games live theatrical experience to London in Summer 2016. Additionally, The Hunger Games Kabam video game launched in November 2014 as the #3-ranking game on Google worldwide.

The next installment of the record-breaking franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2, will be released on November 20, 2015, directed by Francis Lawrence and starring Academy Award(R) winner Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson.

IMAX CORPORATION OTHER INFORMATION (in thousands of U.S. dollars) Non-GAAP Financial Measures: In this release, the Company presents adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share as supplemental measures of performance of the Company, which are not recognized under United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). The Company presents adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share because it believes that they are important supplemental measures of its comparable controllable operating performance and it wants to ensure that its investors fully understand the impact of its stock-based compensation (net of any related tax impact) on its net income. Management uses these measures to review operating performance on a comparable basis from period to period. However, these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, net income and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated on a basis consistent with the Company's Credit Facility, which refers to Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA. The Credit Facility provides that the Company will be required to maintain a Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of not less than 1.1:1. The Company will also be required to maintain minimum EBITDA (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of $90.0 million on December 31, 2014, which requirement increases to $100.0 million on December 31, 2015. The Company must also maintain a Maximum Total Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of 2.00:1 on December 31, 2014, which requirement decreases to 1.75:1 on December 31, 2015. The ratio of total debt to EBITDA was nil:1 as at March 31, 2014, where Total Debt (as defined in the Credit Agreement) is the sum of all obligations evidenced by notes, bonds, debentures or similar instruments and was $nil. EBITDA is calculated as follows:

IMAX Sells 20 Percent Stake In IMAX China To Strategic Chinese Investors

6:00 AM ET 4/8/14 | PR Newswire

IMAX Corporation (NYSE:IMAX; TSX:IMX) today announced the investment in its Greater China business by CMC Capital Partners (CMC), China's leading investment fund that is run by Ruigang Li and focused on media and entertainment, and FountainVest Partners (FountainVest), a leading China-focused private equity firm. The investment provides for the sale and issuance of 20 percent of the shares in IMAX China (Holding), Inc., with the intent of further strengthening IMAX's competitive position in China.

http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20111107/MM01969LOGO

The purchase price for the 20 percent investment is $80 million, to be paid by the investors in two equal installments. The first installment is expected to close today and the second installment will close in early 2015. IMAX China will continue to be a consolidated subsidiary of IMAX Corp.

By introducing Chinese ownership into its China subsidiary, IMAX expects the transaction to lead to an eventual initial public offering of IMAX China. Some of the key goals of the transaction include the continued expansion of IMAX's theatre network in China, the sustained performance in the marketplace of IMAX's Hollywood and Chinese titles, and the further strengthening of government and industry relationships within China, all of which, the Company believes, will benefit from the strong presence of the investors, including Ruigang Li's knowledge of the Chinese media and entertainment industry.

"China is an enormously complex market in which we have accomplished quite a bit over the last 15 years," said IMAX Corp. CEO Richard L. Gelfond. "At this juncture, it makes sense to bring in Chinese investors to help us better address local market dynamics and further optimize our business in China, including both our core theatre business as well as new business initiatives such as the home theatre joint venture we announced last year with TCL. We believe Ruigang Li and CMC, as well as FountainVest, are ideal partners whose status, leadership and expertise will be invaluable in helping us accomplish these goals.

"We expect this strategic alliance, along with the strength of our existing relationships with Chinese partners like Wanda and TCL, will help us usher in the next phase of growth for IMAX in China," Gelfond continued. "Today's agreement represents a joint commitment to further develop China's movie industry by offering premium entertainment experiences, fostering the development of Chinese content and continually focusing on innovation."

"China's movie and entertainment industry is at a critical point of its development," Ruigang Li, Chairman of CMC Capital Partners said. "As the preeminent investment platform in China dedicated to the media and entertainment sector, CMC is excited to be able to forge this strategic alliance with IMAX - the world's leading innovator of entertainment technology under the leadership of CEO Richard L. Gelfond. Based on our common understanding of market opportunities, industry evolution trends, and effective strategy, CMC and FountainVest look forward to working together with IMAX towards accelerating the growth of China's movie and entertainment sector and increasing the presence of premium China entertainment content throughout the global market."

IMAX already enjoys strong brand recognition as a leading premium entertainment option in the Chinese market, and has become the preferred way to experience both Chinese and Hollywood blockbusters in the region. In the last several years, China has enjoyed robust economic growth and a consumer spending boom, as well as regulatory policies supportive of growth in the cinema and film sectors. Assisted by these trends, IMAX's screen count in China has doubled since 2011 to 173 screens open with an additional 237 in backlog as of Dec. 31, 2013.

Through its subsidiaries, IMAX China will continue to have the right to conduct the IMAX business in Greater China. A nine-member Board of Directors will be established for IMAX China comprising six IMAX executives, one representative each from CMC and FountainVest and an independent member to be nominated by the newly formed board.

The Raine Group LLC acted as exclusive financial adviser to IMAX for the transaction.

Conference Call The Company will host a conference call today at 8:00 AM ET to discuss this transaction. To access the call via telephone, interested parties in the US and Canada should dial (800) 820-0231 approximately 5 to 10 minutes before the call begins. International callers should dial (416) 640-5926. The conference ID for the call is 8935125. A replay of the call will be available via webcast on the 'Investor Relations' section of www.imax.com or via telephone by dialing (888) 203-1112 (US and Canada), or (647) 436-0148 (international). The Conference ID for the telephone replay is 8935125.

About CMC Capital Partners CMC Capital Partners is the first media-and-entertainment-sector-focused fund approved by the NDRC (National Development and Reform Commission) to dedicate to media and entertainment investments in China and global markets. Ruigang Li is the Chairman. CMC has made a series of successful investments which have caught the keen attention of the media and entertainment industry within China and internationally. CMC acquired the controlling stake in Star China, formerly News Corporation's China assets, which include three nationally and regionally distributed TV channels - Star (Xing Kong), Star (Xing Kong) International and Channel V (China) - as well as the largest contemporary Chinese language film library Fortune Star.

CMC earlier announced that it together with Star China management team will acquire 21 Century Fox's entire stake in Star China. CMC set up the joint venture Oriental DreamWorks (ODW) in a partnership with Hollywood animation powerhouse DreamWorks Animation. The JV is well positioned to be China's leading family entertainment brand with animation-centered businesses to encompass production and distribution of feature films and TV programming for China and global markets, consumer product licensing, gaming, live entertainment and location-based entertainment. CMC also launched TVB China, a joint venture with the Hong Kong-based TVB - one of the world's largest Chinese-language TV content supplier and broadcaster - to dedicate to building a media and entertainment group with content-based comprehensive business scope. CMC invested in OCJ, China's #1 TV shopping business with a customer base of 30 million households.

Frequently, Academy Award buzz will give a movie another crack at theaters. That's a development that won't bother IMAX (IMAX) or RealD (RLD).

$IMAX - Sony Pictures' The Amazing Spider-Man 2(TM) Spins Into IMAX(R) 3D Theatres Worldwide

Dec 09, 2013 07:30:00 (ET)

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IMAX Corporation (NYSE:IMAX; TSX:IMX) and Sony Pictures Entertainment today announced that The Amazing Spider-Man 2(TM), the highly anticipated next chapter in the story of Peter Parker, will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX(R) 3D format and released in IMAX(R) theatres. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be released in theaters internationally beginning April 16, 2014, and domestically on May 2, 2014.

"After the enormous worldwide success of The Amazing Spider-Man, we're looking forward to partnering again with Marc Webb, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach, and our friends at Sony Pictures to offer IMAX fans around the world an opportunity to experience this highly anticipated film in the immersive IMAX 3D format," said Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp.

The IMAX release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 3D Experience(R) with proprietary IMAX DMR(R) (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Audiences can learn more about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 by visiting the film's official Facebook page at www.facebook.com/amazingspiderman2movie.

We've always known that Spider-Man's most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man(TM) 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

It's great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp. Directed by Marc Webb. Screen Story and Screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner. Based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire(TM) Blazes Trails In IMAX(R) With Estimated $18 Million Worldwide In Opening Weekend

Nov 25, 2013 07:30:00 (ET)

IMAX Has Its Best Three-Day November Opening In Debut Across 347 North American IMAX(R) Theatres, Earning $12.6 Million Domestically

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IMAX Corporation (NYSE: IMAX; TSX: IMX) and Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF) announced today that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the second film in the blockbuster Hunger Games franchise, has grossed approximately $18 million in IMAX theatres worldwide and $12.6 million in 347 IMAX(R) theatres in North America since its release Friday, Nov. 22, resulting in a domestic per-screen average of approximately $36,300. That is the best three-day domestic opening for November in IMAX history, topping the previous record set by Sony's Skyfall in November 2012.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20111107/MM01969LOGO)

For the weekend, eight of the top 10 domestic runs for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire were IMAX engagements.

Internationally, the film delivered a robust $5.4 million in multiple IMAX territories, including standout performances in the Netherlands ($73,000 per-screen average), Australia ($63,000) and the United Kingdom ($51,000). Overall, the film has grossed an estimated $307.7 million through Sunday for Lionsgate worldwide and an estimated $161.125 million in its opening weekend domestically.

The film led the entire IMAX network to its second best overall weekend ever with total worldwide grosses for IMAX reaching $25.7 million.

"We're excited that fans are seeking out the IMAX format in record numbers as the ideal way to experience The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," said Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. "I want to congratulate and thank our partners -- producers Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik, director Francis Lawrence, and Lionsgate -- who realized the full potential of IMAX by using our capture technology in the arena sequences and proved once again that the Hunger Games series is a world-class franchise. Given the film's 'A' Cinemascore and the use of IMAX differentiation, not to mention the Thanksgiving holiday in front of us, we're optimistic about the film's long-term prospects."

Helping to further eventize this cultural phenomenon and transport moviegoers into the world of Panem, director Francis Lawrence used IMAX's extremely high-resolution cameras to film portions of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Exclusively in IMAX(R) theatres, when Katniss enters the arena the image will expand to fill the IMAX screen for the entire arena sequence with unprecedented crispness and clarity, putting moviegoers right into the action alongside Katniss and her fellow Tributes.

The IMAX release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience(R) with proprietary IMAX DMR(R) (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

About THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (played by Josh Hutcherson). Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.

LGF,IMAX: The Hunger Games wrap: Teens show tent-pole strategy alive and well

Early estimates on the box office haul of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire indicate the film earned $152M-$160M in the U.S. over the weekend to set a November record and land as the 8th highest opening of all-time.

Inside the numbers: Global audiences bring the weekend tally for the Lions Gate (LGF) film to well over $200M with many key markets still on tap. IMAX (IMAX) revenue totals aren't out yet, but anecdotal reports suggest a high percentage of filmgoers went the IMAX route. Males got caught in the Catching Fire buzz, jumping to 41% of the audience component from 29% for the original HG. CinemaScore gave the film a coveted A rating for tracking appeal which shows the juggernaut could have sturdy legs right into streaming.

What to watch: The brisk opening brings a sigh of relief across the industry. Shares of LGF and IMAX broke higher Friday off the early buzz - but could show even more friskiness. Theater operators (CKEC, CNK, RGC, MCS, RDI) needed the reassurance that the Instagram-teenager set can still deliver high traffic numbers, while Hollywood studios have been in the crossfires of analysts for their reliance on make-or-break tent-pole strategies. Disney (DIS) with the biggest tentpole of all in its back pocket with the Star Wars franchise will take a few cues. Get cracking J.J. Abrams.
