Box office: Disney poised to break animation slump, watch IMAX

Disney's (DISPlanes 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.

    Disney and IMAX a good joint activity where symbiosis works well for both participants.
    I hold a position in IMAX and may add to it again.
    Their growth(IMAX) through building new theaters, and the terrific sensationalism of the newly produced movies, along with the tremendous public enthusiasm for that sensationalism and acceptance of 3D for new movies is a highly successful set of business decisions.
