4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron” debuted to a massive $201.2 million across 44 territories this weekend.

Disney and Marvel’s super team adventure was the highest-grossing film in everywhere it opened, and has now rolled out in 55% of the international marketplace, including such major locales as France, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, Russia, Korea and Australia.

Going into the weekend, Disney was projecting a foreign debut of between $160 million to $175 million.

“The bar was high, but this is a sign of unbelievable momentum in the marketplace,” said Dave Hollis, Disney’s distribution chief. “It all goes back to the strength of the brand and the incredible work the Marvel team does in telling stories in such a consistent way and creating these worlds.”

The hotly anticipated superhero sequel opens next week in the U.S., where it is expected to earn north of $200 million and could top the first “Avengers” film’s record-breaking $207.4 million bow. »

IMAX’s Greg Foster Talks Laser Projection and if Older IMAX Films Could Return to Theaters

20 April 2015 5:16 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last week I got my first taste of IMAX laser projection when the company invited a few reporters to the Chinese Theater in Hollywood for a special presentation. While I’d heard laser projection was the future, until last week I’d never seen it in action.

One sequence featured a train rolling along on a mountainside track with smoke billowing out of the top and it looked like I was watching real life coming through a movie screen. We also got to watch the first Star Wars: »

'Captain America: Civil War' to Have Some New Digital IMAX Footage

13 April 2015 9:07 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's no doubt that Captain America: Civil War will be one of the biggest blockbuster events next year when it hits theaters on May 6th, 2016. But now we know that it will be about as big as it can get with some full-format IMAX footage shot for the massive screen. In fact, this IMAX footage will be the first to use a new 2D digital IMAX camera, which was created after the giant film format company realized they needed a camera that took advantage of their massive screen, but didn't need to be shot in 3D or on film. IMAX CEO Greg Foster says, "This is where there was a gap and now we’re filling this gap in our arsenal." Production is about to begin in Atlanta very soon, and Variety reports Anthony & Joe Russo will be using this new IMAX camera to shoot what will amount to about »

Captain America: Civil War to be first Marvel film shot in IMAX

13 April 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel have today confirmed today that Captain America: Civil War will be the first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to be part-shot in IMAX, using the latest 2D camera technology.

Around 15 minutes of the film will be shot using IMAX technology, which co-director Joe Russo has been discussing: “We like being on the cutting edge of technology and we like to enhance storytelling with technology in a way that pushes the narrative forward creatively. When you’re working on a Marvel film there’s a sense of showmanship that goes along with the movies and no exhibitor exploits that better than Imax.”

“The demand for our cameras has never been stronger,” said Greg Foster, CEO of Imax Entertainment. “But we’ve had a supply/demand issue. In a very calculated way we held back the supply and that’s increased demand in a way that we haven’t been able to satisfy. »

Box Office: ‘Furious 7′ Destroys Records With $143.6 Million Debut

5 April 2015 6:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Furious 7″ raced to the top of the domestic box office, picking up a massive $143.6 million in its opening weekend.

That establishes a new high-water mark for the month of April, blowing past the $95 million debut of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” and standing as the highest-grossing kickoff for any film in the “Fast and Furious” franchise. It also ranks ninth among the top 10 openings in history.

Much as “The Dark Knight” turned into a memorial for Heath Ledger, audiences flocked to see star Paul Walker in one of his final roles. The actor died in a 2013 car crash at the age of 40, and his work on the film was completed using digital technology and a series of stand-ins.

“This is a bittersweet installment in the franchise,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. “[Walker’s] passing made this movie more intriguing for people who hadn’t seen some of the installments. »
