IMAX's revenue and profit turned out to be as big as its screens in 2010, their highest in its 43-year history, the giant-screen company said today (Thursday). In a statement, IMAX reported that net income for the year increased to $100.8 million on revenue of $248.6 million versus $5.0 million/$171.2 million in 2009. Its profit in the fourth quarter came to $54.2 million, which was exactly what its total revenue came to a year earlier. "The fourth quarter of 2010 marked a strong finish to what was a record year for IMAX in virtually all respects," said IMAX CEO Richard Gelfond. He particularly credited "the success of the company's digital strategy" -- that is, exhibiting films from cheap digital media rather than the enormous and costly film "platters" weighing more than a quarter of a ton for a feature film that were previously associated with the IMAX system. Gelfond predicted another record year in 2011 as he considered "our contracted-in theater backlog, our announced film slate, film [studio] deals we are working on and the pipeline of theater deals we are working on."
The actor says he isn't "holding out for more money or doing anything like that".
The drama will be making its return to the streaming service in the near future.
