IMAXA strong box office buoyed Imax profits as more filmmakers film bigger chunks of their movies for the massive screens, the longest bit so far being 72 minutes of Warner Bros. "The Dark Knight Rises," and two big releases shoot in Imax simultaneously for the first time. Imax needs to ramp up camera production to meet increased demand, said CEO Richard Gelfond on a conference call Thursday. "Prometheus" and "The Amazing Spider-Man" used Imax sequences. 2013 highlights include J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" sequel and "Catching... Lesen Sie mehr

‘Dark Knight Rises' Breaking Blighty records

By Robert Mitchell auf Juli 18, 2012

LONDON -- Two days out from release Warner Bros' ''The Dark Knight Rises'' is already setting records in the U.K. The BFI London IMAX cinema announced Wednesday that the blockbuster has already sold 62,300 tickets at the venue, grossing more than 1 million ($1.57 million) since going on sale five weeks ago.

BEST KNIGHT OF YOUR LIFE

By Lou Lumenick auf Juli 18, 2012

Batman is lured back into action after a lengthy hiatus — to prevent a terrorist from nuking a Gotham City closely resembling the Big Apple — in the imposingly dark and hugely entertaining “The Dark Knight Rises.’’ Superhero movies are perhaps the most predicable genre out there right now (sorry, Marvel fans), but take it from someone who can usually spot plot twists half an hour away: Christopher Nolan’s dramatically and emotionally satisfying wrap-up to the Dark Knight trilogy adroitly avoids clichés and gleefully subverts your expectations at every turn. Eight years after the end of 2008’s “The Dark... Lesen Sie mehr

How the Dark Knight Rose in IMAX

By Stephen Kelly auf Juli 17, 2012

He's anti-3D, still shoots on film and believes in using as little CGI as possible -- Christopher Nolan is Hollywood's traditionalist. But for his latest, The Dark Knight Rises, Nolan needed an epic camera to match the scale of his vision for his third Batman film. "The Imax cameras use 65-millimetre 15-perforation film advanced horizontally through the camera at 24 frames per second," explains David Keighley, Imax's chief quality officer. "The frames are nine times bigger than a traditional 35mm movie frame. For Chris [Nolan] it's the closest you can get to zooming down the road in the Batmobile." Please click here to Lesen Sie mehr
