Paramount announced today that it is extending the theatrical run of its remastered Raiders Of The Lost Ark to more than 300 North American theaters beginning today. The move comes after a one-week IMAX run last week at 267 venues that grossed $1.6 million and is part of the studio’s publicity push for the September 18 Blu-ray release of Steven Spielberg’s and George Lucas’ Indiana Jones: The Complete Collection. The remastered pic was the No. 2 matinee last Friday — not bad for a 30-year-old movie.
