Imax just had a great opening from The Day the Earth Stood Still. The movie was number one during its opening weekend and grossed over $30,000 per Imax screen.
The current lineup of movies to be released on Imax is:
The Dark Knight (Re-Release) in January
Under the Sea 3D in February
Watchmen in March
Monsters vs. Aliens 3D in March
The following do not have release dates on Imax's website but will be on Imax screens:
A Christmas Carol (Disney movie with Jim Carrey-December)
Avatar (James Cameron project for December)
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
As you can see the lineup is pretty solid for 2009. Usually the firm has more documentary type movies but has seemed to shy away from that with the potential profits coming in from big studio movies.
I love Imax for 2009 and it will be included in my Top Ten Stocks for 2009 which will be posted on here very soon.
