The combined box office from BRIC nations could double to $12.1B by the end of 2017, according to new industry research. Growth in China, Russia, Brazil, and India is being led by higher ticket prices and a rapid pace of screen construction. Though it's good news for Hollywood studios (TWX, DIS, LGF, VIAB, CMCSA, SNE) looking for global growth opportunities, IMAX (IMAX -0.9%) is the company that could see the biggest benefit if the rosy forecast pans out.
