Avengers Infinity War has registered 4th biggest opening day of all time in Pakistan.
Avengers Infinity War has fallen well short of opening day record. Film had got record number of shows ever for any release but still records always looked unlikely. Film has managed to rake in amazing numbers at big multiplexes but numbers in mass circuits are not that big.
Sultan released couple of years back still holds the top position for biggest day one and biggest single day ever. Sultan had much lesser number of shows and also had less number of screens. In real terms Sultan, Furious 7 and Dhoom 3 remain true biggest opener of all time. Avengers Infinity War comes at 4th spot in top 10 and list is dominated by Shah Rukh Khan who has three films in top 10.
Interestingly, there is only one film from the local industry in top 10 which pretty much says that how much our cine goers are interested in the content generated by domestic market. Opening numbers and screens are multiplying at good pace but local films are failing big time to create big impact. It doesn’t mean that there are no footfalls out there but it is all down to the content generated. If we take out Eid releases then there is no local film even in top 30 opening days. This doesn’t mean that footfall is down out side Eid periods. 8 out 10 opening days are non Eid releases and 5 are non Holiday releases.
