AMC announced that starting in 2022, the world's largest movie theater chain will begin selling "AMC Theatres Perfectly Popcorn" at kiosks, counters, and stores in retail malls throughout the U.S. The locations won't be in malls that have an AMC theater, because that would just be too much popcorn competition.

The first half of 2022 will get five locations with another 15 locations coming by the end of 2022 and even more planned for 2023.

Freshly popped popcorn from actual AMC Theatres will also be available for delivery via food delivery services, which will make movie night at home that much better. Eventually, the company plans to sell a microwaveable version of the popcorn in grocery stores and convenience stores.

"Needless to say, AMC knows popcorn ever so well," AMC CEO Adam Aron said in a statement. "On our busiest days, AMC Theatres currently pops in the range of 50 tons of popcorn per day. But the popularity of popcorn extends well beyond the doors of our movie theaters."

2022: The year of the popcorn.
