This Weekend will see the release of two Hollywood films, Hellboy will be distributed by HKC while Disney’s Dumbo has been bought by Eveready Pictures. Both the films will be securing a spot in the top 5 films with the highest Weekend boxoffice accumulation this weekend.

The weekend is expected to be led by Disney’s Captain Marvel. Film had opened to a remarkable response last Weekend but its drop on Weekdays have also been huge. The film’s performance on Weekdays was somewhat expected as the film is a four weeks late release. A further fall is expected this Weekend and we are anticipating it to be around 65-70%. This would wrap the film’s second weekend under 1 crore.
This week’s new release Hellboy has attained a good amount of shows thanks to the low occupancies of Captain Marvel over the Weekdays. Hellboy does not enjoy a brand name in Pakistan however its a fresh release and will therefore compete neck to neck with Captain Marvel over the Weekend. Film might even edge past the Disney’s biggie but we are expecting it to rank at second spot after Captain Marvel.
Third Slot is expected to be secured by SherDil. SherDil is holding exceedingly well till now and film will be hitting 10 crores mark over its 4th Weekend. Film had dropped around 55% in its third Weekend and we are expecting a smaller fall this Weekend as last Weekend had bigger films competing against it. We are anticipating a fall of about 50% which would make its weekend go around 40 lacs approx.

Fourth position will be taken by last Week’s release Shazam. Shazam will definitely see a fall this Week due to two new releases and film will be battling with SherDil for a the top 3rd position but going by the current trending, it will rank behind SherDil at fourth number.
Rounding up the top 5 will be Disney’s Dumbo. Film is hitting two weeks late compared to its international release. In addition, Dumbo received mediocre reviews from Hollywood and the film’s target audience is children. The film will struggle over the Weekend. Film will take up the 5th spot however it will not contribute much to the Boxoffice as current tracking suggests, it will get a Weekend of 25 lacs approx.
Laal Kabootar which is out of the top 5, is expected to continue its steady run. Film fell around 46% in its third Weekend and we are expecting a fall of around 40% this Weekend enabling it to go around 18 lacs approx in its fourth Weekend.
