Angels & Demons grosses Rs 22.4 mn across single screens


    MUMBAI: Angels & Demons, which was released on 135 screens across single screens in India has grossed Rs 22.4 million (Rs 2.24 crores) in the first four days. The opening weekend collections were at Rs 19 million (Rs 1.90 crores).

    The movie starring Tom Hanks, Ewan McGregor, Ayelet Zurer, Stellan Skarsgard and Pierfrancesco Favino, was released with 133 prints in India. Angels & Demons has been directed by Ron Howard.

    Sony Pictures Entertainment Films India managing director Kercy Daruwala, said, "We are happy to see audiences coming back to cinemas in a big way. It just shows that you can’t keep a good film down."

    The movie was supposed to release in multiplexes but talks over revenue sharing terms failed at the last hour, which then led Sony to release the movie only in single screens in India.
