    3-D Jonas Brothers head to IMAX

    Film kicks off Disney's five-picture deal

    By Marc Graser
    Variety

    HOLLYWOOD -- The Jonas Brothers will kick off Disney's five-picture deal with Imax.

    "The Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert Experience" will unspool on Imax screens for one week beginning Feb. 27. Release is timed with the wide rollout of the pic in traditional theaters.

    When the deal was announced last November, Robert Zemeckis' 3-D holiday entry "A Christmas Carol" was expected to be the first pic the two companies would release under the new deal.

    Imax said the addition of the Jonas Brothers pic to its release sked was possible because of the rollout of the company's digital projection system into more theaters. It now operates 320 theaters in 42 countries.

    Before the Imax pact, the Mouse House chose to play its digital 3-D titles in conventional theaters only.

    The Jonas Brothers pic is helmed by Bruce Hendricks, who directed the "Hannah Monatan/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour" feature that performed well in theaters last year, earning a surprising $65 million during a limited release. Rockumentary blends excerpts from the Brothers' "Burning Up" concert tour that include guest performances from Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift.

      It'll probably open on more screens right out of the gate so tht should help push their numbers up. Here's what they'll have to top:

      In a record-breaking debut, Disney's Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert film finished #1 at the box office this weekend. Buoyed by the success, Disney announced they would extend the limited-edition run of the 3D film, but did not indicate for how long.

      Hannah/Miley took in $29 million, making it the highest-grossing film ever on a Super Bowl weekend. It also set the record for the highest gross by a film released on fewer than 1,000 screens.

          It helps, of course, that they're traveling aboard the good ship Disney. The company has put its full weight behind the group with a vision to replicate its wildly lucrative Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana franchise.

          The new Jonas Brothers movie is a page straight from the Cyrus playbook. But mixing up-tempo songs with a you-are-there feel (and a few off-stage vignettes to break up the music), the movie aims squarely for anyone with a Jonas jones who failed to get their in-person concert fix.

          "Last year, Miley's 3-D movie (of her Best of Both Worlds tour) opened at $31.1 million and ultimately made $65 million in the U.S.," says Paul Dergarabedian, box office analyst for Hollywood .com. "With the success of girl-oriented movies like Twilight, the timing for a Jonas movie couldn't be better. If they open at $30 million, few would be shocked."

          Music is the moneymaker

          Big bucks already are flowing, thanks to album sales. The group's latest release, A Little Bit Longer Jonas BrothersBillboard's album chart shortly after its August unveiling and has sold close to 1.5 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

          Last year's concert tour grossed $41.5 million and was the 13th biggest in North America, "one step above Coldplay," says Gary Bongiovanni, editor of the touring trade publication Pollstar. "They were the breakout new act of the year. Everyone else out there, from Madonna on down, were the usual suspects. They haven't peaked yet."

              The studio employed this strategy with the 'Hannah/Miley' release too, extending it after overwhelming popular demand looks good to consumers, it implies success and suggests the immediacy of purchasing tickets and/or limited edition merchandise. I'd expect to see this happen with the JoBros too.

                That's true, but with so many other 3D films coming out, I feel like the run in IMAX theaters really will be limited to a week, although I do hope it stays out longer! I feel like a 3D movie is meant to be seen in IMAX rather than in a regular theater.

                            Movie Review
                            Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience

                            To fully savor Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience, it's best to watch with an audience overwhelmingly populated by girls and young women, all of them on their feet singing lyrics like ''Oooh, this is an S.O.S.,'' and squealing every time one of the wildly popular teen-bait hotties mugs for the restless camera. And you're in luck: Squeal-o-vision is pretty much guaranteed at any multiplex screening of Disney's newest puppy-pop 
concert film. Fans who know all the words to ''BB Good'' and ''Burnin' Up'' are the target ticket buyers for this chipper, careful brand extension of the sani-packaged boy band composed of 21-year-old Kevin (the fun one), 
19-year-old Joe (the cute one), and 16-year-old Nick Jonas (the eerily self-possessed too-young-to-vote one, who 
 has been singing for a living since he was a 
6-year-old New Jersey squirt).
                            Spinal Tap territory. Then it 
 returns safely to Disney earth with the 
 heavenly message encoded in the boys' finger jewelry: Abstinence only, kids!
