Yeah, it's overall grosses, but did you hear people bitching about TDK because of the IMAX uptake? Maybe, only not as much here.

I'm just happy that Transformers 2 won't be the highest grosser of '09.

Technically, Trans2 made more money in 2009. Not sure how they quantify that type of thing for end-of-year films.

They'd still consider films like Avatar and Sherlock Holmes to be 2009 grosses even if it carries into the following year. Look at Gran Torino and Slumdog's placements on the '08 lists.

Avatar will have a really high gross,
I think something like 45% of sales are IMAX and 3D with ticket prices between 14- 17 bucks.

That's not universally true, my IMAX is $11.50... somehow it hasn't gone up in 6 years.

Also, TF2 made more domestically but Half-Blood Prince was the real previous winner of 2009, worldwide, that franchise is insanely consistent, although the last 2 will probably make even more each.

Also, if you want to argue how impressive it is next to previous totals that's one thing, but it still collected that much in under 3 weeks with no built-in audience, it's a word-of-mouth juggernaut, and sure the tickets cost more a lot of the time-- but people have been willing to pay the premium. Still impressive.

Here in the O C, CA

ticket prices are

11.50 - 2D

15.50 - 3D

16.50 - IMAX 3D



for sure 2010 prices are a good 30+ % higher than anything before 2000.

See the regular 35mm/digital multiplex across the street from the IMAX has rocketed up to like $10.50 or so for non-matinee shows, this IMAX just all-around rocks haha.

Um, I paid $15.50 for 3D in Toronto. IMAX 3D is a couple of bucks more...I think maybe $17?

I paid the same for 3d, I just meant that for a regular ol' movie, its usually around $12. I was implying that we are getting hooped for regular movies, as whoever it was I quoted (deep?) said that 3d was twice as much
