RealD 3D, the world’s leading 3D experience, brought in 55% of the total box office for Warner Bros. Pictures/New Line Cinema’s Journey to the Center of the Earth, which earned an estimated $21.02M in its opening weekend.

“We are ecstatic with the performance of Journey to the Center of the Earth in 3D. The success of this film is propelling 3D to new heights and RealD has been a great partner and once again proven its power at the box office,” said Dan Fellman, President of Warner Bros. Distribution.

Journey to the Center of the Earth in RealD 3D took in an amazing and unprecedented 3.7 times the revenue of the 2D screens. It’s clear that audiences sought out the premium RealD 3D experience to enjoy this great summer movie. With over 5,500 RealD 3D screens committed to be installed in approximately the next two years, RealD has quickly established itself as a force in contemporary filmmaking and exhibition.”

Reason #131 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:

I read it because I need it! For an avid audio/video enthusiast such as myself, Widescreen Review literally blows away the competition in terms of technical expertise and professional journalism when covering the world of cinema. Whether it is for the home or the local movie theatre, the magazine's articles are the most complete from my experience. This is particularly evident with topics that are covered over multiple issues. Instead of what could be a brief overview, there appears to be a journalistic determination to “do it right or don't do it at all” attitude from the very beginning. There are three key factors that I believe contribute to this achievement. One is the amount of research you do, and you do it with a resolve to touch as many bases as possible. Two is the amount of preparation that goes into each article or review, which most readers only get to read the tip of the iceberg as a finely polished product. Finally, your passion for the field you cover is as great or greater than that of your readers.
