4DX Bringing Moviegoers into the Action with Early 2017 Releases

New Line-Up Announced following 2016 During which Top 5 Performing 4DX Films were in the Action Adventure, Superhero, Fantasy and Sci-Fi Genres
CJ 4DPLEX, the world’s leading 4D cinema company, has been changing the worldwide moviegoing paradigm from “viewing” to “experiencing” – bringing more moviegoers, especially action blockbuster lovers, back to the multiplex and away from their couches.
 
Following a successful performance last year with the world’s top-ranked blockbusters, 4DX’ enhanced experience – featuring moving seats and environmental effects such aswind, rain, lightning, snow and a variety of scents – has emerged as a sensational trend which gives an opportunity to blockbuster movie fans to not only watch a movie but be a part of it.
 
As a result of in-depth discussions with major studios worldwide, CJ 4DPLEX has today revealed a remarkable line-up of films – including most of the world’s biggest blockbusters – to be available in the 4DX format that today is today available in more than 360 auditoriums spanning 44 countries around the world. These new releases include the following titles from global studios premiering in various regions around the world during the first half of 2017:

Sony Pictures             
  • Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
Warner Bros. Pictures 
  • The LEGO Batman Movie
  • Kong: Skull Island
Lionsgate
  • John Wick: Chapter 2
Paramount
  • xXx: Return of Xander Cage
  • Monster Trucks
Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures
  • Beauty and the Beast
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2
20th Century Fox
  • Logan
  • The Boss Baby
  • War for the Planet of the Apes
Enjoy Movies
  • Guardians (Zashchitniki; Russian)
In 2016 alone, more than 100 titles were screened in 4DX – an increase of 30 percent from the 72 titles available in 2015 – and blockbusters that encompass action adventure, superhero, fantasy, and sci-fi genres among the most popular. This trend is expected to continue into 2017 with the above titles. 
 
For example, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter premiered in Japan last year and passed 75 percent average occupancy in the first screening weekend, and anticipation is high for the 4DX version as the film continues its worldwide rollout. Additionally, Logan is the third and final standalone Wolverine film to star Hugh Jackman, following 2013’s The Wolverine, which was available in 4DX across 12 countries. The previous film in the series attracted an enthusiastic response from moviegoers, especially in Brazil, where it recorded a 92 percent occupancy rate during its opening weekend.
 
The 2017 4DX line-up not only includes hit Hollywood franchises, but also local films in other markets. Previously, most of 4DX’s hit movies were Hollywood blockbusters, but, CJ 4DPLEX has been expanding its collaboration with local filmmakers and studios in order to diversify its content line-up. As a result, 4DX will screen the highly anticipated Russian superhero movie Guardians (Zashchitniki) in Russia and Vietnam in February. 

“We are thrilled to be showing a line-up featuring the most exciting action films to kick off 2017. 4DX maintains close relationships with Hollywood studios and continually receives blockbuster content to be converted into 4DX – something that is increasing as more creatives and studio partners see our potential as a powerful new driver of theatre audiences,” said Byung-Hwan Choi, CEO of CJ 4DPLEX. “The growing number of 4DX titles means that 4DX is recognized as a mainstream option for moviegoers seeking the most immersive cinema experiences available.”

Top 4DX Titles of 2016
In 2016, the top five 4DX titles for the year were: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Doctor StrangeCaptain America: Civil WarBatman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. In fact:
  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice recorded an occupancy rate of more than 90 percent during its opening weekend in the U.S., Turkey, Swaziland, South Africa, Romania;
  • Captain America: Civil War passed 70 percent average occupancy in the first screening weekend across 37 countries; and
  • Doctor Strange had a sensational opening weekend, selling out of 4DX tickets in Canada.
Other films in these genres among the top 20 4DX titles in 2016 were Star Trek Beyond, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryIndependence Day: ResurgenceDeadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse
