It looks like it did not do well anywhere. War pictures have no legs. Even “SAVING PRIVATE RYAN” dropped badly after the first few weeks while adding more screens.

I think Dunkirk will have legs if it holds up in the next few weeks kinda like Saving Private Ryan did years ago. That film was nominated for an Oscar for best picture yet lost out to Shakespeare in Love. Hopefully Nolan’s latest movie wins an Oscar for best picture if it gets any nominations. Dunkirk is doing great in Europe especially Dunkirk, France where the movie takes place. I wonder how Asian audiences, especially China, will react to this movie when it opens overseas in the next few months. The imax figures are huge and should provide some much needed cash to Imax stock as stocks of that nature in general have fallen as opposed to the overall stock market. I think Dunkirk will sell well on Bluray, where hopefully they keep the imax ratio intact much like how they treated Nolan’s other Imax filmed movies including Interstellar, The Dark Knight, and its sequel which was the last good Batman movie.

Hello-

to Darth Vader444. the more I think about it the more $50 mil seems like a really low amount. I mean if just Nolan devotees went to see the film it ‘ should have made more. also the film’s trailer has been online for like a year. also the film’s trailer has been in theaters fro weeks. what baffles me the reviews I read were uniformly A+ so I expected a bigger opening weekend. the odd part is some big summer comic book type movie comes out gets mixed to negative reviews and everyone agrees it doesn’t work yet the film makes a truck load of cash anyway. I don’t get it.

I was dissapointed with the opening as well @bigjoe59. Maybe that is just the US numbers and this will do better in European markets. At least I hope so.

I disagree completely @alpinedweller. The volume levels are carefully tested to meet imax standards. IMAX is designed to give the ultimate audio/video experience. Keep the volume where it is! Looking at decibel levels you hear more damaging sound by having a firetruck drive by or have to listen to busses drive by at close distances. If IMAX is too loud there are plenty of theatres that have “Mom and baby day” where they squelch the dynamic range and lower the volume so baby can sleep. Someone who wants the ultimate audio/video experience couldn’t tolerate “Mom and Baby day.” however if IMAX is too loud that might be a good option. ;)

Hello-

the opening weekend gross of Dunkirk was only $50 million? isn’t that rather low. it was not a long film so they could get in more screenings per day. again a rather low amount.

I still think the volume at most theaters these days, especially IMAX, is too loud. Hearing damage causing loud. Uncomfortably loud.

Believe it or not they invited some who at actually been at Dunkirk to one of the IMAX premieres (different theater) and they said it looked pretty accurate but it was too loud! They said in the IMAX theater it was louder than it had been in real life (at least unless you were so close to a bomb that you didn’t survive)! That just shows how nuts the volume levels have gotten in the the theaters.

Hello-

I saw Dunkirk at the 1p.m. screening in the IMAX auditorium. !!!!! WOW!!!!! is my reaction. with the combination of the image and the sound you felt you were on the beach with the 400,000 soldiers.

one question. toward the end of the film when a
number of the young soldiers are in the bottom of
the landlocked boat Harry Styles' character gets
really angry at another soldier. for the life of
me I can’t remember why Styles. character got
angry. why did he?

I went to the 2pm 5/70 showing of Dunkirk today and 10 minutes in the projector stopped. We had to wait 5-10 minutes for it to come back. Smooth sailing from there, though the focus wasn’t perfect, and you can notice it at the end credits.

Thanks for the heads up Moviebuff. I’m going to the 4pm show today (row F). I decided not to watch any trailers for the SW movies. I will have to close my eyes. Lol

a 70mm trailer for The Last Jedi is being shown before the imax version of Dunkirk and seats are filling up fast!!!

the digital imax version had trailers for said movies when i saw it in rockaway.

I remember the 5/70 print of Interstellar had a trailer attached for Inherent Vice. The 35mm version had trailers for Inherent Vice, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.

Yeah. It’s actually an hour and 40 minutes if the credits are long…

Hello Again-

I am not talking about all the crap at the beginning I am talking about the running time of the film itself. to which 1hr. 46mins. is on the short side for a large scale historical epic.

did ever really truly fix the 3D here (at the Laser IMAX screen)? Is the bad ghosting and messed up glasses issues with uneven poor coatings on the right lenses on some to many of the glasses really fixed?

Actually, with the film presentations I wouldn’t be surprised if there are no trailers. Dark Knight Rises and Interstellar didn’t put any in with their IMAX 15/70 presentations nor are there likely to be 15/70 trailers available, and with the regular 70mm showings, only Murder on the Orient Express seems like an obvious title to package in.

moviebuff82 on July 14, 2017 at 12:25 am

add to that 30 minutes of trailers and 20 minutes of ads it’s fairly long.

Dunkirk is only 1hr. 46mins.? that’s on the short side for a large scale historical epic.

Row J is a good idea.

@hershy67: Row J is my go-to. Also can recommend row K.

hershy67 on July 10, 2017 at 4:27 pm

What are the best IMAX seats here post renovation? I had the best view of the screen in the middle of row M pre-reno. Thinking of trying out J for Dunkirk. Any thoughts?

never mind, in the case of A Ghost Story, the curved edges are correct, it uses the old NTSC format and they purposely also added curves on top to make it look like older TVs
