This weekend is turning out to be another instance as moviegoers have many options this week too for Hollywood as well as for Bollywood films. Bollywood films- Dobaara – See Your Evil, Dear Maya, A Death In Gunj, Hanuman Da Damdaar, Sweetiee Weds NRI, Mirror Game – Ab Khel Shuru, Flat 211 and Bachche Kachche Sachche have released at the Box office.
On the other hand, two Hollywood films- Priyanka Chopra-Dwayne Johnson starrer Baywatch and Wonder Woman have hit the cinemas. Well, Priyanka Chopra has been promoting the film extensively and her presence in the film might help to pull up good numbers at the Indian Box Office. However, Baywatch has received mixed reviews from Hollywood critics. The Hollywood release could not create the much-expected magic there. So could the film earn well in India?
Baywatch opened to a poor response of 10% while superhero film Wonder Woman witnessed 20% of the opening in the morning shows. However, considering the kind of hype revolving around Priyanka starrer Baywatch, the film has been disappointing.
Wonder Woman, which has released only in English with no promotions has earned Rs 2.50 crore nett approx (25 million) on its first day. While Baywatch, which released in four languages (English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telegu), has done a business of Rs 1.50 crore nett approx (15 million).
Earlier this year, Deepika Padukone starrer Hollywood film xxx – Return of Xander Cage also could not live up to audience expectations. However, Baywatch has been a disaster even more than Deepika’s Hollywood debut.
Now it remains to see if the film can take a lead on its first weekend at the Box Office.
