3D Movie Fans Expand Box Office Says International 3D Society Study
The International 3D Society
released a 3D revenue study today showing that 3D movie fans are driving
opening weekend box office revenues by significant margins.
The report shows opening weekend 3D
ticket revenues outpacing 2D ticket sales by margins of 2 to 1. The
report states that Alice
in Wonderland generated over $81 million dollars or 70% of its opening weekend
gross revenues on 3D screens vs. $34 million in 2D domestic ticket revenue.
Society President Jim Chabin said,
"While this study is just a snap shot of what opening weekend’s 3D grosses
look like, these kinds of trends do reflect that consumers are obviously
thrilled by 3D."
The 3D to 2D domestic box office
comparison was prepared for the Society by Exhibitor Relations, Inc.
Moviegoers are purchasing 3D movie tickets by an almost 2 to 1 margin over 2D
Avatar's percentages were even
higher, the report estimates, with 80% or $62 million of its first weekend
gross ticket sales revenues of $77 million generated from 3D theaters vs. $14
million in 2D theaters.
The International 3D Society provides
a community along with education and recognition for stereoscopic 3D
professionals and is producing the 3D Technology Awards October 5. Society sponsors include Signature Sponsor,
XpanD and Founding Sponsor, MasterImage 3D.
