First quarter of the year is always the slowest one in terms of box office returns and we rarely see big grossers in first three months. When we look towards Hollywood then we seldom see big budgets or star studded films hitting cinemas in first quarter.
It is evident from that the fact that a total of 18 English films have topped PKR 100 million mark in Pakistan and there is only one film from the month of March i.e. Beauty and The Beast. Emma Watson starrer had just touched PKR 100 million mark and it stands tall as 56th highest grossing film of all time Pakistan.
The film was a massive hit globally by raking in over $ 1.26bn with North America contributing little over $ 504m. However this year around March has registered lowest turnover of all time globally due to coronavirus outbreak.
Cinemas are closed globally in most countries and they are closed in Pakistan as well and going by current situation there is no clarity that when will things get normal.
