IMAX: Panda is Huge on IMAX

June 14th, 2011

Super 8 got off to a stronger than expected start, and this was partially due to its strength on IMAX, as the film made $4.4 million on 240 screens. This is a better total than Kung Fu Panda 2 managed, but that film was playing on just 53 IMAX screens. On the other hand, it's a little bit more than half of what Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opened with, while playing on a nearly identical number of screens.

There are still two major IMAX releases coming out this month, Cars 2 and Transformers: Dark of the Moon, so IMAX should continue to have a strong summer.
