Australia’s first 3D IMAX film Hidden Universe 3D hits stellar heights at the box office in its first week
October 1, 2013 – Hidden Universe3D is hidden no longer. In its first week of release, Australia’s first 3D IMAX production has reached the Top 18 of the Australian Box Office. For the weekend of the film’s release Hidden Universe3D grossed $30,056. With only
two prints of the film in circulation, it wins the average gross per print by far with $15,028/print in front of Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine ($8,518/print).
Hidden Universe3D takes audiences on a breathtaking journey deep into space in the cinematic medium that transports audiences like no other. With the full power of IMAX 3D cinematography, the deepest reaches of our universe are brought to life with unprecedented clarity through real images captured by the world’s most powerful telescopes—seen on-screen and in 3D for the first time.
Stunning, high-resolution 3D images of space allow moviegoers to explore the earliest galaxies, watch stars being born in vivid clouds of gas and dust, tour the surface of Mars, and witness images of distant celestial structures including stunning views of the Sun.
Seen for the first time in IMAX 3D, these dramatic new images offer fresh insight into the origins and evolution of the universe.

Executive produced by Emmy®-award-winning producer Tony Wright. Produced in association with MacGillivray Freeman Films. Produced by Stephen Amezdroz and written and directed by Russell Scott.
