Select IMAX theaters are celebrating the re-release of three blockbusters by bringing them back to the biggest of screens.
Summer 2011 was one of Hollywood’s most profitable, with help from the box office success of Fast Five, and it has a chance to add to its till by returning to IMAX theaters for a one week run -- beginning September 30.
Also arriving on IMAX screens for the September 30 through October 6 re-release is J.J. Abrams’ reboot of Star Trek and the dreamy Inception. Movie Fanatic may just have to see Star Trek again, after it was announced that J.J. Abrams will direct Star Trek 2.
AMC Theaters is the chain responsible for the event and they are calling it their Imax Big Movie Week. Fans can check out each film throughout that week for $7, a paltry charge compared to what a first run IMAX flick can cost.
When we say blockbusters to describe these three films, it's an understatement. AMC and IMAX are bringing back movies that have collectively earned over $1.8 billion.
