Iron Man 3 is a huge hit everywhere, especially in China, where IMAX (NYSE: IMAX ) booked $1.8 million in gross receipts -- a new record -- as Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS ) set a high watermark of its own.

They've good reason to be confident. Even as 3-D too often falls flat, audiences have taken to the widescreen IMAX format and the additional footage that often comes with it. For Iron Man 3, the company collected a record-breaking $28.6 million at the gate during this past weekend's U.S. opening and $39.3 million since its international debut. The best part? It's only May. IMAX could be well on its way to the biggest summer movie season in its history, Tim says.
