The milestone has only been achieved by three other films — “Avatar,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Gravity.”
Warner Bros. is handling the international release and Paramount is handling domestic, where the Imax run concluded on Sunday except for 12 locations. New Line’s “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” will open at Imax locations on Friday.
Nolan used Imax cameras for more than an hour of “Interstellar,” and sequences shot in 35mm film have been digitally remastered with Imax technology.
The film is directed by Christopher Nolan, written by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan, and produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Lynda Obst.
“Interstellar” has grossed more than $621 million at the worldwide box office, with $166 million domestically and $455 million internationally.
