IMAX: Transformers Becomes the Biggest on the Bigger Screen

July 6th, 2011

Not only did Transformers: Dark of the Moon break records for biggest Independence Day weekend, it also broke records on IMAX. This includes becoming the first film to ever top $20 million during its global debut, as it earned $23.1 million on 251 screens. The breakdown for that number was $14.0 million on 146 screens domestically and $9.1 million on 105 screens internationally. In addition, the film has yet to open in several markets, including major markets like Japan and China, so it has a lot of potential left, at least internationally. The only downside for the film is the competition, as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II is sure to chase it away from most IMAX theaters when it opens on the 15th.
