Christopher Nolan’s historical drama “Oppenheimer” is set to return to IMAX screens as part of a one-week encore presentation.
From this Friday, the film will be showing once again at six IMAX 70mm film locations around the globe: AMC Lincoln Square in New York City, AMC CityWalk Stadium 19 in Hollywood, AMC Irvine Spectrum in Irvine, AMC Metreon 16 in San Francisco, BFI London in the UK; and Melbourne Museum in Australia.
All of these premium screens were the first to sell out during the initial box office run of the movie. “Oppenheimer” of course ended up being a massive hit this year, grossing a major $946 million at the worldwide box office.
It is still the third-highest grossing movie of the year and the second-highest grossing R-rated film in history. On IMAX alone it has managed to pull in $183 million and is the giant format’s fourth-highest grossing release of all time.
The re-release comes as the box-office is dead quiet with no major releases for the coming weekend which was originally set to have “Dune: Part Two” before it moved to next year.
The next major release is Disney’s superhero team-up film “The Marvels” which will take over most IMAX cinemas when it opens on November 10th.
