‘Titanic’ 3D scores in China Imax debut

Global cume for converted epic is $60 million

As James Cameron’s “Titanic” 3D conversion continues to roll out globally, the pic’s Imax presentation scored a company best in China Monday at midnight, shoring up approximately $265,000 from just 62 debut Imax runs.

“Titanic” 3D beat Imax’s previous midnight record in China set by “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” with $169,000. Locally, the pic screened at 90% capacity, according to Imax.

Chinese biz for the pic in Imax looked solid by mid-afternoon Tuesday.

The film debuted last weekend day-and-date with the U.S. in 84 overseas countries; in 14 the pic screened in Imax. The 3D edition (the conversion cost $18 million, at the high end for 3D redos) has cumed more than $60 million worldwide as of April 15.

Paramount released “Titanic” 3D domestically, while Fox Intl. is handling overseas distribution duties.
