Paramount Pictures’ Top Gun: Maverick has reached new heights with $60 million in box office sales in CJ 4DPlex’s premier theatre formats, the visually immersive, 270-degree panoramic ScreenX and the multi-sensory 4DX.
This continues to mark the highest grossing title in the company’s history, with Top Gun in 4DX surpassing $40 million and Top Gun in ScreenX surpassing $20M at the global box office. With 786 4DX theatres and 370 ScreenX theatres worldwide, CJ 4DPlex’s formats combined are now the second largest premium format network in the world.
“Top Gun: Maverick continues to wow audiences and set more box office records even into October,” said Jongryul Kim, CEO, CJ 4DPlex. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Paramount Pictures, Tom Cruise, Joe Kosinski and Jerry Bruckheimer and provide global audiences with premium moviegoing experiences that can’t be replicated anywhere else.”
Don Savant, CEO and president, CJ 4DPlex America continued, “Over two years ago, the theatre industry was considered all but gone. We could have never expected to be breaking ScreenX and 4DX records so quickly after the global pandemic. Top Gun: Maverick is a testament to the power of filmmaking, and we are thrilled audiences can experience the film in our truly unique and immersive formats.”
Top Gun: Maverick in ScreenX provided 58 minutes of exclusive panoramic imagery – a first for ScreenX. ScreenXʼs peripheral three-screen design allows audiences to take in majestic views, feel the rush of flying and puts them right in the middle of the climatic jet fighting scenes with Maverick and his crew. 4DX theatres are one of the most immersive cinema formats in the industry. The elevated theatre technology enhances the on-screen visuals of action-packed blockbusters, transcending the traditional cinema experience through special effects including motion-synchronized seats, wind, fog, rain, lightning, snow, bubble, vibration, and scents.
Top Gun: Maverick continues to play at select ScreenX and 4DX theatres worldwide.
