20th Century Fox plans to extend partnership with ScreenX
20th Century Fox and ScreenX are in advanced discussions to continue their partnership and release new films in the panoramic 270-degree cinema technology format.
“We love giving our fans as many options as possible to enjoy our films and ScreenX is definitely a great way to see a movie. After the success of Kingsman: The Golden Circle last year, we look forward to continuing this partnership,” said Andrew Cripps, president of international film distribution at 20th Century Fox.
In the past 12 months, ScreenX-installed auditoriums have grown from 107 to 142, a 33% increase. Additional screens are expected to be equipped with the technology across China, the U.S. and Europe in the coming year, expanding current total screens by 25% by the end of 2018. This includes a deal with B&B Theatres announced at CinemaCon 2018 that will bring four new ScreenX locations to the U.S. through 2019, including one in Liberty, MO, that will be the largest ScreenX in the world.
“Twentieth Century Fox remains an excellent partner for us, as they are looking for new ways to push the boundaries of moviegoing at the theatres. We are thankful for their commitment to ScreenX as we look to expand the reach of this new technology that we feel is going to change moviegoing for the better in coming years,” said Byung-Hwan Choi, CEO of CJ 4DPLEX.
