Whereas moviegoers in India are still waiting with bated breath for reopening of cinema halls, fans in China are rewatching Robert Downey Jr’s Dolittle and Christopher Nolan’s masterpiece Interstellar.
Cinema halls in China have reopened with a fresh set of rules and regulations to follow. Both the films i.e. Interstellar & Dolittle mentioned above are creating havoc at the Chinese box office. This also proves one thing of how much audiences have missed the experience of watching a movie at cinema halls.
The strategy of re-releasing big films like Interstellar have worked for them, and it seems theatre owners and exhibitors back in India will follow the same route. Movies like Tanhaji and Good Newwz stand a good chance of being experimented to re-release once the lockdown is relieved.
Robert Downey Jr’s Dolittle released and topped for the 2nd weekend at the China box office. In just ten days, the movie now stands at a total of $11.8 million. Christopher Nolan, Matthew McConaughey’s Interstellar recorded the biggest opening day since the comeback of films at $2.8 million.
The top 5 apart from Dolittle and Interstellar are The Enigma of Arrival, Sheep Without a Shepherd and Mr Miao. What are your thoughts about the same? Do let us know in the comments section below.
