Deal Continues Companies' Long-Running Relationship

 

Walt Disney Co. and IMAX Corp. agreed to release a handful of upcoming Disney films in IMAX theaters, with plans to team up on several Marvel films and a Star Wars movie in 2015.

 

The deal continues IMAX and Disney's long-running relationship and will involve IMAX being part of Disney's release strategy for several major films, including this year's "Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier," "Maleficent," and "Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy," as well as next year's "Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron," "Tomorrowland" and "Star Wars: Episode VII."

 

Last year, the two companies agreed to co-produce their first movie together, expanding the relationship between the entertainment giant and the operator of theaters known for large floor-to-ceiling curved screens.

 

The companies have previously collaborated together on the distribution of numerous films such as "Fantasia 2000" and "Oz the Great and Powerful."

Renowned big-screen cinema purveyor IMAX Corp. is set to break ground Thursday on a new West Coast headquarters that will house two large screening rooms, offices and production facilities for moviemakers.

Developer Lincoln Property Co. is building the 66,000-square-foot facility that IMAX will own. Lincoln also built more than 800,000 square feet of offices at Playa Vista and is developing the $260-million Runway office, retail and housing project that will serve as Playa Vista's downtown.

Thus, the $100m benchmark is especially worthwhile considering the much larger percentage of tickets sold in the large-screen format, in this case about 15% of its total gross.
