CNBC: Why and how 'Jurassic World' broke records

By Julia Boorstin on June 15, 2015

Universal's "Jurassic World" broke all sorts of records; foremost, it became the first film to ever surpass $500 million worldwide in a single weekend. In the U.S. it far exceeded expectations, grossing $205 million, the second-biggest debut ever, behind Marvel's "The Avengers" in 2012, which brought in more than $207 million.

Not only will Universal more than make back the $150 million it cost to make the movie, plus tens of millions more to market it, but it breathes new life into a decades-old franchise, and numerous toy spinoffs.

So why did the old dinosaurs roar back in such a massive way?

I've seen the future and — surprise — it's in 3D

By Toronto Star: Peter Howell on June 11, 2015

Tom Hardy roars across the screen in Mad Max: Fury Road, spectacular when seen with new 3D technology.

Watching Mad Max: Fury Road in 3D on IMAX with Laser at Scotiabank Theatre simply blew me away. It was like watching the film, which I love and had already seen twice, for the first time.

New technology has become a hard sell for me lately, because so much of it disappoints.

Box Office: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Scores Second-Biggest Opening With $187.7 Million

By Variety: Brent Lang on May 3, 2015

Avengers: Age of Ultron” scored the second-biggest domestic opening in history this weekend, kicking off summer blockbuster season with a mammoth $187.7 million debut.

Globally, the film is a juggernaut, pulling in an estimated $627 million in 12 days of release. At that pace, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” should pass $1 billion, particularly after it opens in China on May 12.

One record remained tantalizingly out of grasp for Captain America, Iron Man and company, however. Going into the weekend many analysts predicted that “Avengers: Age of Ultron” would top the $207.4 million haul posted in 2012 by the first film in the super-team series. That box office high-water mark will stand… at least until “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” lands in theaters this Christmas.

IMAX CEO Richard Gelfond On Large-Format Future: ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’, Rivals, TV Shows & Adult Fare – CinemaCon

By Dealine: Anthony D'Alessandro on April 21, 2015

EXCLUSIVE: In 1994, Richard Gelfond didn’t know that much about the movie business.  He was an investment banker, a lawyer and an entrepreneur and together with his business partner Brad Wechsler, snapped up IMAX, a nice purveyor of nature and science documentaries.

When it came to expanding to more blockbuster fare, there was a bit of catch 22: Studios wouldn’t shoot movies in IMAX unless there were more commercial theaters and exhibs wouldn’t build more theaters unless there were more Imax studio releases. Eventually, Imax developed a model that worked, and now the major studios, particularly when it comes to their tentpoles, can’t live without IMAX.
