Pirates ruffle many feathers

Mumbai: A thumping record breaking $132 million opening at the US box office by the Hollywood action adventure film Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest has resulted in a major upset at the US box office.

Recording many firsts at the US box office history, Pirates single handedly has destroyed prospects of rest of the films released around it. This set back has not been limited just for the Hollywood films but has affected the hindi films released in the US as well.

Desi superhero flick , Krrish, which was running steady last weekend in the US box office at No. 29, has fallen to No. 43 position in its third weekend.

But, Krrish doesn’t have to lose heart as it has gained two positions up in its third weekend at the UK box office. It was at No. 12 position in its second weekend but has managed to jump up to No. 10 position. Total earnings of Krrish in UK are now totaling upto £ 551,916.

There is a heavy flow of hindi films starting from coming Friday with Golmaal followed up by The Killer, Omkara and Ahista Ahista. Hopefully by then the Pirates may have run out of some steam making way for these films to cash in on summer at the US box office.
