Box office: Disney poised to break animation slump, watch IMAX
- Disney's (DIS) Planes is on track to record a $30M opening week to give a shot in the arm to the animation business. A few sub-par animation releases this year led to increased concern the genre was fading.
- Other box office stars for a weekend forecast to be a record-breaker for August include Elysium (SNE) and We're the Millers (TWX).
- What to watch: IMAX (IMAX) could follow up a robust Q2 with an impressive Q3 as reports from overseas indicate demand for Hollywood titles in the IMAX format has picked up in July and August.
