The third quarter of 2023 was a great time for IMAX. Big hits like Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer and even Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One did really well on IMAX screens even though they didn’t do so well at the box office. These two movies helped the business make more money this quarter.
It’s clear that people liked the movie because it made $900 million around the world. For a big part of that success, the IMAX shows Oppenheimer. A lot of people wanted to see them, so they kept getting bigger.
As recently as a quarter ago, IMAX CEO Richard Gelfond gave the movie high marks and said that just IMAX tickets brought in $180 million. IMAX made $103.9 million, which is 51% more than the previous quarter, thanks to this.
“Imax financial results for the third quarter are spectacular by any measure — versus budget, versus our historical performance, and in the context of a highly dynamic business environment for media and entertainment,” Gelfond said.
“We are programming by far the strongest and most diverse content portfolio in our history — Hollywood blockbusters, local language films, marquee theatrical releases by streamers, concert films, docs, live events — and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results across our global network.”
Based on the life of theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, the movie Oppenheimer tells his story. The atomic bomb was made possible by Oppenheimer’s work at the Los Alamos Laboratory, which he was in charge of during the Manhattan Project.
