Thomson’s Technicolor Contributes to Record-Breaking Weekend Box Office

Led by The Dark Knight, Technicolor’s Services Were Delivered to All Top 10 Films in the North American Market

Thomson (Euronext 18453; NYSE: TMS) – the worldwide leader in video solutions for the Communication, Media & Entertainment (CME) industries – today announced that its Technicolor Services division has provided a full array of industry-leading laboratory and digital services to the top 10 films driving the record-smashing North American box office for the weekend of July 18 - 20. 

Technicolor provided key services to every film in the top 10 of the record-breaking session. The unprecedented results, for a three-day non-holiday weekend, were led by Warner Bros.’ The Dark Knight, which broke all records over a non-holiday, three-day weekend grossing an official $158.3 million. Other new opening films Technicolor served include Mamma Mia!, and Space Chimps.  Mamma Mia! rewrote the records books and became the top opener in film history for a musical. The domestic box office racked up an unprecedented $250 million or more in ticket sales making July 18 - 20 the biggest three-day weekend ever in terms of total grosses.

Technicolor provided a combination of best-in-class creative and technical services in both the film and digital arena – including front-end negative processing and dailies; digital intermediates; theatrical release printing; and digital cinema services. Technicolor provided digital intermediates and digital cinema services to half of the 10 highest grossing films; and it provided theatrical release printing to over three-quarters of the top 10 films – through a combination of domestic and international theatrical release prints.

“We are honored to have contributed to the films that produced the remarkable results from last weekend’s North American and International theatrical box office,” stated Lanny Raimondo, head of Thomson’s Services Division.  “These results once again establish the power of filmed entertainment to capture the attention of moviegoers everywhere, supported by our best-in-class service offerings.”

Technicolor provided a near record volume of theatrical release prints for The Dark Knight from the company’s worldwide locations.

Digital intermediates were produced by Technicolor’s Los Angeles and New York facilities, for Mamma Mia!, Hancock, Space Chimps,  and Kung Fu Panda.  Technicolor’s Rome laboratory provided digital intermediate film-out services for Hellboy 2: The Holden Army. Technicolor also provided worldwide film prints for Mama Mia!, Hellboy 2: The Holden Army and Kung Fu Panda.
