Yet another Hollywood film has done well at the Box Office. Captain America: Civil War opened well on Friday and rest of the weekend, though not fantabulous, was still good. Frankly, one expected better escalation in collections but the lack of that made one a tad apprehensive if the footfalls would go down during the week. However, the weekdays stayed stable right through and that helped the film sail gather good numbers at the close of week. The collections stand at 42.72 crore and these are good numbers for the film. It should maintain decent hold in the second week and the lifetime of 55 crore is on the cards.
Meanwhile, The Jungle Book had fair collections in its fifth week as well. With 6.02 crore* coming in, the collections currently stand at 176.97 crore. The film will end its lifetime at the 180 crore mark and Bang Bang total of 181 crore would be touch and go. The shows have reduced drastically though for the film though it is quite a feat that The Jungle Book has entered sixth week.
There are many more Hollywood biggies line up before the close of year and at least 6-8 major films are on the way, which carry a potential to cross at least the 50 crore mark. For the distributors and exhibitors, this is great news indeed as it would ensure that audiences are stepping in theaters at the least.
Note: All collections as per production and distributor sources
