April ended with bang but May will be down to low numbers as Ramzan begins from mid May.
It looks like Deadpool 2 will lead comfortably in May.. April saw excellent numbers as Baaghi 2 and Avengers Infinity War has done really well especially Baaghi 2.. Numbers of Baaghi 2 are best of recent times at many mass circuits. Even Cake did reasonably well at some leading multiplexes. Avengers Infinity War has done really well too but numbers were excellent in plexes only, as we go deep into circuits numbers came down fast. Overall Avengers and Baaghi 2 has combined done over 30cr approx so far which is fantastic result.
May does have two very big films lined up but both will fall well short of expectations. First biggie is Deadpool 2, prequel had done excellent business but this time release timing is not good as film releases in Ramzan hence having limited boxoffice appeal. Second biggie is Solo A Star Wars Story. No doubt that Star Wars will open with bang in North America but all Star Wars movies have struggled big time in Pakistan. This time Star Wars is releasing in Ramzan which will further dent film’s numbers. Previous Star War film released six months ago and couldn’t even hit 2cr mark. This one will probably fall short of 1cr mark making it lowest Star Wars grosser.
Among Hindi films there is no major release this month and all eyes are on Sanju which releases next month with massive expectations. Coming toward local films there is nothing this month due to Ramzan and then four major films hit screens on Eid which will create a chaos at boxoffice.
