Fast and Furious’s spin off Hobbs and Shaw is just few days away from its release and the buzz is already sky high. Hobbs and Shaw is carrying the brand value of Fast & Furious. Fast & Furious is one of the biggest brands in Pakistan.
Whenever a Fast & Furious film has released, it has taken boxoffice by a storm. At mass centers, Fast and Furious is even bigger brand than the local and Indian films. In last few years the biggest openings in mass circuits outside Eids belong to Fast and Furious series.
Hobbs and Shaw will be releasing in 2D all over Pakistan on Friday. But the distributor has decided to have preview shows of the film a night before. Thursday night previews are very common in North America as every film has Thursday night preview shows. But here in Pakistan, Thursday night shows happen for very rare big films. Fast & Furious 8 had massive preview shows and the film had raked in record numbers from preview shows back in 2017.
Hobbs and Shaw will be having preview shows all over Pakistan from 10pm on Thursday. The number of shows for Thursday night previews are huge and the film will be releasing in both English and dubbed versions. The film will be chasing the records of Padmaavat for highest previews collections. Padmaavat had collected over PKR 9 million from preview shows last year whereas Fast 8 had collected over PKR 7.5 million from preview shows back in 2017.
