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.
