CJ 4DPLex says it closed out a successful first half of the year with record-breaking 4DX attendance and box office revenue. According to the company, from January 1 through June 30, more than 9.3 million 4DX moviegoers helped generate close to more than $110 million at the worldwide box office, the best half-year performance since the company launched 4DX in 2009.
Since its debut, 4DX has attracted an audience of more than 50 million who have seen the 440-plus Hollywood and local titles made available in the innovative, premium movie format.
Featuring motion seats and environmental effects, 4DX continues to garner positive reviews and elicit delight in fans as it expands around the world and becomes a more recognizable and popular cinema option.
In the past six months alone, 43 titles were screened in 4DX. In fact, more movies are available in 4DX than in any other 4D format. The exceptional popularity and growth of the format has been driven by the diversity of films available, with genres ranging from action blockbusters to romantic musicals. This trend is expected to continue with the titles scheduled for 4DX release in the second half of this year.
In the first half of 2017, 4DX added 41 sites in fourteen countries. This is an increase of 37 percent in comparison with last year's first half period, which opened 30 sites. Countries where 4DX expanded in 2017 to date include: China (21 new sites), U.S. (5), India (2), Japan (2), South Africa (2), Brazil (1), Egypt (1), France (1), Hungary (1), Mexico (1), Norway (1), Qatar (1), Turkey (1) and the U.K. (1).
