‘Parasite’ Getting One Week Imax Release As Oscar Winning Best Picture Looks To Fly Past $50M+

Here’s something to sail NEON’s Parasite past the $50M mark at the domestic box office: The 4x Oscar winner, including, best picture is getting an Imax release in select auditoriums tomorrow for a one week release.


The Cannes Palme d’Or winning movie was digitally re-mastered into the Imax format.


In the wake of making Oscar history as the first foreign language film to win Best Picture and the first Korean film to win Best Director, Best International Film, and Best Original Screenplay, Parasite saw a jump in its total domestic cume of +22% last weekend following its wins, one of the best surges for an Oscar Best Picture in the past five years besting the post Oscar ceremony weekend jumps of Green Book (+9%), Shape of Water (+6%), Moonlight (+13%) and Spotlight (+6%).
