IMAX: Sky High Opening for Underworld

January 25th, 2012

Underworld: Awakening broke a record for IMAX with $3.6 million over the weekend, or 15% of its total box office. This is a record for a digital release on the format. It also pulled in $1.0 million internationally for a $4.6 million opening weekend. Meanwhile, Flying Swords of Dragon Gate became the first Chinese film to reach $10 million on IMAX in its native country and now sits in third place on the all time IMAX chart in that market. (Only Avatar and Transformers: Dark of the Moon are ahead of it.)

Up next is Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, which opens in just over two week's time.
