Hollywood Is Taking Better Openings
On one hand, Bollywood and Indian films are happy with 50% or so less weekend and lifetime business post pandemic but Hollywood films are smashing because of more loyal audience. Despite not so good reviews ‘Shahzam’ scored initially and even Anime films are holding grounds.
‘John Wick 4’ again proves that there is growing hunger for Hollywood films specially franchise films. It’s lifetime business of 45 cr or so in India proves this fact loudly.
