Oscars 2020 are just a week away and all eyes are glued on best film category. 1917 seems to be favorite at the moment however one can’t rule out the possibilities of Joker, The Irishman, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood or even Ford v Ferrari.
1917 saw release in Pakistan last week and the film concluded its opening week with a business around PKR 4 million. The numbers are quite decent considering there is no face value of the film. Furthermore, with Oscars getting closer next week the film can actually hold pretty well in coming weeks.
1917 also got hit by Mere Paas Tum Ho on last Saturday which took away huge number of shows from the film on Saturday which would be the best performing day for the film like 1917. In comparison to 1917 if we take a look at Ford v Ferrari which released in November last year then Ford v Ferrari opened with opening weekend of PKR 4.2 million whereas opening week went to PKR 6.5 million.
At the close of opening week Ford v Ferrari leads by around 60% compared to 1917. Ford v Ferrari had very solid holds in following weeks as the film concluded run around PKR 18 million which was almost 2.75 times more than opening week. If we use the same multiplier for 1917 then we can expect a lifetime run of PKR 11 million for 1917. However, with Oscars happening next week we can expect this number to get better and we can expect lifetime finish around PKR 15 million.
