  • “As more of the world’s best filmmakers create specifically for our platform, IMAX is becoming as much about excellence in production as it is presentation of the biggest blockbuster filmmaking,” said Rich Gelfond, CEO of IMAX. “Quite simply, audiences get that if you see a movie Filmed for IMAX in IMAX, you’re getting the best, most immersive cinematic experience money can buy, which is why we’re driving a huge share of the global box office on these titles.”

    The increase in IMAX-focused production follows a run of historic success for Filmed for IMAX titles, as IMAX drives outsized returns at the global box office despite its nearly 1,700 commercial locations accounting for less than 1% of total screens worldwide.

  • IMAX delivered 20% of the global box office for “Oppenheimer” — shot entirely with IMAX film cameras — and more than $190 million worldwide, making it the fifth highest grossing IMAX film of all time.

  • Next-Generation IMAX 15/65mm Film Cameras

    To meet growing demand among filmmakers to shoot in IMAX, the Company is developing and finalizing the rollout of four next-generation IMAX 15/65mm film cameras:

  • IMAX is currently finalizing the prototype design and is on track to beta test early prototypes by August 2024.
  • IMAX expects the new cameras to enter production by the end of 2024.
  • The new cameras will offer spectacular image quality while incorporating a more modern design, features, and functionality and reduced noise by 30%.
  • IMAX has tapped some of the world’s most accomplished filmmakers and cinematographers — including Christopher Nolan, Jordan Peele, and Hoyte van Hoytema — to identify new specs and features for the prototype.
  • IMAX currently has nine original IMAX 15/65mm film cameras in its existing fleet.
  • In addition, many of today’s top filmmakers embrace the IMAX platform working with IMAX-certified digital cameras:
  • – Joseph Kosinski (“Top Gun: Maverick”) is currently shooting his forthcoming Formula One film with Director of Photography (DP) Claudio Miranda.

    – Todd Phillips shot “Joker: Folie à Deux” with IMAX-certified digital cameras and will also prepare a select run of the movie in 70mm IMAX film.
