TRON: Legacy Makes $3.5 Million at Midnight


It’s being reported that Walt Disney Pictures’ TRON: Legacy, directed by Joseph Kosinski, has grossed an estimated $3.5 million from its midnight screenings last night with 25% of that amount coming from screenings in 228 IMAX theaters, which is reportedly the largest percentage for midnights.

According to Deadline, that percentage of IMAX to non-IMAX at midnight is higher than that for James Cameron’s Avatar, Christopher Nolan’s Inception and Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2. While it’s doubtful that TRON: Legacy will be able to break the $11.8 million IMAX weekend record set by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 last month, its midnight showing is a good sign that the movie’s doing healthy business going into its opening weekend.
