Disney, IMAX Sign Deal For 3 More 3D Movies
 
Buy Disney from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

There's fresh ink on a new agreement between Disney and IMAX that will bring three new Disney 3D titles to the super-screen in 2011.
The latest in the Jack Sparrow saga, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the Pixar sequel Cars 2, and another animated feature called Mars Needs Moms, will all be in IMAX 3D next year.

Although IMAX presentations have been available for nearly 20 years, it hasn't been until the last year or so, thanks largely to James Cameron's Avatar, that it has become a real force in the movie theater market.

And it's an increasingly important part of Disney's business model. As the studio that tries to incite magic in everything it does, there's a lot of value in presenting its movies in such a grand environment.

Nearly 10% of Toy Story 3's opening weekend revenue came from IMAX. That's substantial, considering that less than 5% of the theaters it played in even had IMAX.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
