A record percentage of midnight business for the giant screen format as Tron: Legacy in IMAX is a fanboy dream come true.
Getting off to a great start in its midnight debut, Disney’s Tron: Legacy grossed over $1 million in IMAX which represents more than one-quarter of the $3.6 million in midnight business (this percentage is a record for IMAX). This exceeds their percentages for Avatar, Inception and Iron Man and clearly demonstrates the importance of IMAX particularly when it comes to technologically-themed films that have amazing visuals and feature heavy-duty soundscapes.
Not to mention that the Daft Punk score for the film sounds pretty insane when pumped through the special IMAX mega-watt sound system. All of this makes for a massive sensory experience that takes the enjoyment of Tron, puts it on the IMAX fitness program and the results are a visual and auditory tour-de-force. Catch Tron: Legacy this weekend in theatres across the globe.
