Hot on the heels of the news that 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' is returning to the big screen, we have a new trailer for the reissue. It confirms what we know: it's a one week engagement on Imax screens, partly to help sell the upcoming Blu-rays. And now we also know that AMC is also doing a one-day all-Indy Marathon in select locations.
Can't get enough 'Raiders of the Lost Ark?' Well, you're about to get a lot more. To help promote the upcoming release of the Indiana Jones Blu-ray Box Set, we can confirm that Paramount will be re-releasing 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' in IMAX theaters this September.
Are you ready for a bigger ‘Batman Begins?’ Before ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ reaches theaters, Christopher Nolan’s trilogy launcher will make its way to theaters with a fancy new IMAX retrofit, allowing Warner Bros. to screen both ‘Begins’ and ‘Dark Knight’ as part of an event leading up to the opening of ‘Rises.’
'The Avengers' had the Imax field all to itself this weekend. It was on 275 Digital Imax screens and made $15.3 Million there, which would figure out to $55.6 Thousand per screen (and that's nearly eight thousand above the total per screen average). It also did $207 Million over the weekend, which meant exhibitors were none too happy to lose any of these screens to 'Dark Shadows,' which they already had booked. But a deal's been made to share screens.
