Imax reached 15 new Theaters JV in South Korea

Imax agreed to form a joint venture with a South Korean theater exhibitor to operate up to 15 new theaters in the country as the giant-screen movie operator seeks to expand its presence in Asia.

The agreement with CJ CGV Co Ltd was signed following the success of the exhibitor's five existing Imax locations in South Korea, where the current 3D release of the blockbuster movie "Avatar" has generated more than $6.5 million, Imax said.

"It is a big market opportunity out there (in Asia) for the success of Imax," Craig-Hallum Capital analyst Mark Argento told Reuters by phone.

In December, Imax, known for digitally remastering Hollywood blockbusters, said it was in talks with at least five film companies in China. [ID:nTOE5B6073]

Some of the big movies last year created lot of incremental demand for Imax's products and the international market offers natural growth opportunities, the analyst said.

"We expect to see more type of such deals going forward," Argento said.

The deal with CJ CGV will add 10 new joint venture locations in the major cities in South Korea, and has an option to increase that number to 15.

Brigantine Advisors analyst Steven Frankel said Imax may not follow a similar pattern to expand in China.

"I think in China there isn't sufficient infrastructure around in reporting of box office receipts to form joint ventures. So, they have been selling equipments in China," Frankel said.


Imax, which will report its fourth-quarter earnings on Thursday, said it has been seeing increasing demand in South Korea, and the rollout of its new locations is expected to begin later this year.

"We expect the company could grow in excess of 30 percent in 2010, which is a combination of more theaters, larger installed base of Imax theaters and better performance, more and more revenue growth at box office per theater," analyst Argento said.

Imax said that separately, CJ CGV will upgrade four of its existing Imax film-based locations to the company's digital projection system.



Imax 'Prince of Persia' May 28th International release

Imax will release a supersized version of "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" from Jerry Bruckheimer Films on May 28, simultaneously with Disney's wide theatrical release internationally.

Toronto-based Imax said the film, directed by Mike Newell and starring Jake Gyllenhaal, will be digitally remastered for a limited release on its international network of theaters.

The release marks Imax's first Jerry Bruckheimer film, and follows its successful release of Disney's 3D film "Alice in Wonderland" last weekend.

Here's the trailer for the movie "Prince of Persia"

The film's limited international IMAX release will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience(R) with IMAX DMR(R) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

"Once again our expanded network of IMAX locations is enabling us to offer moviegoers around the world more compelling content ideally suited to The IMAX Experience," said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. "The success of our international theatre network is a key component of our growth, and we are delighted to secure this highly anticipated summer title for our international exhibitor partners."

"We're revved up that moviegoers throughout our international territories will have the opportunity to experience this epic adventure in IMAX theatres," added Greg Foster, Chairman and President, IMAX Filmed Entertainment. "Walt Disney Pictures is continuing to add blockbuster releases to our growing slate, and it's a particular treat with 'Prince of Persia' as it kicks off our relationship with hit maker Jerry Bruckheimer."

The Tron Legacy will release at the 3D theatres and IMAX 3D on December 17, 2010. Recently, Cindy Morgan's Tron Legacy trailer was referenced in theatres before Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.

Here's another trailer in HD quality

While the many moviegoers who saw Alice in Wonderland over the weekend got to see the Tron: Legacy trailer, a few hundred lucky fans saw the trailer early, at a special event held at IMAX theaters in five cities around the world.

In even rarer company were the select few who caught the trailer at the special event at L.A.'s The Bridge, where director Joseph Kosinski and Steven Lisberger, the co-writer and director of the original Tron, were on hand to conduct an impromptu Q&A about the 27-years-in-the-making sequel.

Avatar Imax reach 200 million Worldwide Box Office

IMAX Corporation and Twentieth Century Fox today announced that James Cameron's Avatar, recipient of Golden Globe(R) awards for Best Picture and Best Director as well as nine Academy Award(R) nominations, has crossed the $200 million mark at IMAX(R) theatres worldwide during the weekend from Friday, February 19, 2010 through Sunday, February 21. During its 10th weekend, the film grossed $4.3 million from 179 IMAX theatres domestically, representing approximately 27% of the film's total domestic three-day weekend gross of $16.2 million. Internationally, the IMAX release grossed $3.9 million from 84 IMAX theatres, bringing the weekend's global IMAX total to approximately $8.2 million and the film's overall IMAX global total to more than $200 million.

"This incredible milestone not only reflects the mass appeal of watching Avatar in IMAX, it also reflects the significant expansion of our global audience base," said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. "Avatar was a perfect fit for IMAX and the type of event title IMAX fans and exhibitors embrace. We look forward to growing our audience even more as we continue to expand the IMAX network and offer moviegoers more of Hollywood's biggest films."

The IMAX release has delivered particularly strong performances across the international IMAX theatre network. In the Asia-Pacific market, the IMAX network has generated approximately $43 million from 38 screens, with 20 IMAX screens in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan and Australia, each surpassing the $1 million mark.

In the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, the IMAX release generated more than $32 million from 35 screens, many of which surpassed the $1 million mark. Some IMAX locations have more than doubled that milestone, including Moscow's Nescafe IMAX Theatre, which has reported approximately $3 million in gross box office receipts from its single IMAX screen, and the BFI IMAX in London, which reported more than $2.3 from its single IMAX screen.

"The combination of James Cameron's revolutionary film and the enhanced image and sound of The IMAX Experience(R) has clearly resonated with Avatar fans around the world," said Greg Foster, Chairman and President, IMAX Filmed Entertainment. "We reached this milestone thanks to the strong word of mouth about the experience of watching Avatar in IMAX, and the hard work of all of those at Lightstorm, Twentieth Century Fox, IMAX and our global exhibition partners."

"Many exhibitors in domestic and international markets have pushed the boundaries of their operations to accommodate the high demand to experience this amazing movie in IMAX," added Phil Groves, IMAX's Senior Vice President, Film Distribution. "Many locations are still seeing strong business from extended show time schedules."

Avatar is directed and written by Academy Award Winner James Cameron and stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez and Sigourney Weaver. Avatar has been digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience(R).

Avatar is the story of an ex-Marine who finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an Avatar, a human mind in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds, in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people. More than ten years in the making, Avatar marks Cameron's return to feature directing since helming 1997's Titanic, the highest grossing film of all time and winner of eleven Oscars(R) including Best Picture. WETA Digital, renowned for its work in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and King Kong, has incorporated new intuitive CGI technologies to transform the environments and characters into photorealistic 3D imagery that will transport the audience into the alien world rich with imaginative vistas, creatures and characters.
