Box Office. Recently, it was Fast and Furious 6, which had topped the collection chart, beating Bollywood movies. Now, it is the turn of the much-awaited film Man Of Steel (MOS), which has not only got good start, but also has overtaken the new Hindi releases like Fukrey and Ankur Arora Murder Case (AAMC).
Zack Snyder-directed Man Of Steel is a sic-fi superhero film and its promo videos and posters have created lot of curiosity among the film goers in India. Its makers have had massive publicity for it. Besides this, the movie has garnered rave reviews from international film critics, who have given 3 to 4 rating out of 5. All these aspects enabled the movie to register a good amount of advance ticket booking in the country.
Fitting to its pre-release hype, Man Of Steel has received a thunderous opening at the Indian Box Office. The movie registered 60% to 65% occupancy in the morning and matinee shows in the country on its opening day. Although its occupancy is not equal to that of Fast and Furious 6, it is far better than many big Bollywood releases of the year 2013. It is expected to show big jump over the weekend.
Whereas Fukrey and Ankur Arora Murder Case are much-hyped and highly-awaited Hindi movies. They have got a poor start at the domestic Box Office. They have registered an average of 15% to 20% occupancy in the morning and matinee shows in the country on their opening day. Both have garnered rave reviews from film critics, who have given them generous rating. Trade experts feel that they will have a big leap on Saturday and Sunday.
