The $30-million Stalingrad grossed $66.1 million (1.69 billion rubles), according to the Russian movie date base KinoPoisk, compared with the box office gross of $49.9 million (1.64 billion rubles) for The Irony of Fate, a sequel to a popular 1970s New Year’s-themed melodrama.
Stalingrad opened Oct. 10 in regular and IMAX theaters, with the latter accounting for 13 percent of its box office gross, and its theater run lasted for six weeks.
13% would be 8.6 million.
to shoot footage for interstellar. That's got to be some intense footage.
The film would have been more successful if the author didn't have such a big mouth. Not going to go into it bu if you search Orson Scott Card you'll find out he's kind of a crackpot, imho.
Jackie Chan’s upcoming “Police Story” will get a leg up in the crowded late-December calendar when it is released in China as an Imax picture.
The news was announced Tuesday by Imax chairman and president Greg Foster at a lunchtime keynote speech at the U.S.-China Film Summit conference in Los Angeles.
The film, the sixth in the Chan-starring “Police Story” franchise, is set for a Dec. 24 release in China. It’s directed by Ding Sheng, and co-stars Liu Ye, Steve Yoo and Jing Tian. China Vision Group and Wanda Media are the producers. Wanda is the biggest single operator of Imax screens in China.
Chan’s last Chinese film, “CZ12 (pictured above), was a hit in China, taking in $141 million.
Foster said that Imax has been involved in 11 local-language films in China since it opened its first commercially operated giant screen in Shanghai in 2004. The company now has more than 140 screens in operation in China.

Bummer for me since I live across the street. Can't wait for Laser now. Digital IMAX is still much better than anything but film Imax.
Only 5 theaters but it's nice to see IMAX being nimble.
Benchmark initiated coverage on IMAX Corporation (NYSE: IMAX) with a Hold rating and a price target of $29.42.
So they increased their price target by 3 cents.
I understand the reason perfectly. What bothers me is that there was no way of knowing it would be shown in digital and they still charged the same price as film on the theater. The Digital theaters charge $1 less per movie.
I'm sure a lot of people went out of their way to go to that theater on 68th and Broadway instead of 34th and 8th or 34th and 2nd expecting a film presentation.
I had a group of 18 come up to that theater for a birthday party. the Kips Bay IMAX was much closer to them but figured they would be using film for Gravity considering it was going to be there for a month.
It's unfortunate that Warner's didn't go for film prints on Gravity. Everybody still enjoyed the presentation but I'm sure that every person that seen a few films in that IMAX was slightly disappointed.
My #$%$ eyes. The DLP digital projection clip before the movie and the size of the image on the screen.
at 68th and Broadway. Last night was standing room only for the 7pm show. People bought the handicapped seats and had to stand. Looked great but probably 75% the size of using film.
The other side of the coin is the size of the the last 150 theaters opened in the States. How many seats per theater?
Avatar opened with 9.5 million on 178 Screens or a 53 thousand average.
Gravity did 11.8 million on 323 screens for a 36.5 thousand average.
Of note, the film has made $26.5 million over the last ten days in IMAX alone, including the second-largest 2nd Saturday in IMAX history ($3.7m). Total domestic box office is 123.4 Million. 21.5% in IMAX.
Worldwide I read 33 million in IMAX out of 200 million or 16.5%
