Synopsis

An ex-wrestler is forced to give up his dreams of winning gold for India in international wrestling due to lack of financial support. He resolves to train his future son to one-day represent India in his passion sport. But destiny had other plans. Over two decades, Mahavir’s faith in his dream dwindles as he is blessed with four children, all girls. But when his eldest daughter Geeta, aged 14 and his second daughter Babita, aged 12, bash up a group of boys from the neighborhood during an eve-teasing incident, Mahavir realizes his girls have the same talent he was born with. With hope restored, Mahavir relentlessly pursues his goal of transforming his daughters into world-class wrestlers. Forcing them to train with the village boys, Mahavir inspires them to fight to win despite the odds and to go for gold, no matter what.

Theater Averages: The New Year has a Patriotic Start

January 10th, 2017

Patriots Day

The theater average chart was dominated by holdovers, as is the norm this time of year. The top film was Patriots Day with an average of $14,972 in seven theaters. This bodes very well for its wide expansion next weekend. 20th Century Women is becoming a sleeper hit earning an average of $13,047 in ten theaters. This is one of those films that should be earning more Awards Season buzz, but I fear it has slipped between the cracks. Toni Erdmann and Paterson were neck-and-neck with averages of $10,472 and $10,205 respectively. More...

Theater Averages: Hidden Stands Out with Average of $34,329

January 4th, 2017

Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures rose to first place during its first full weekend of release with an average of $34,329 in 25 theaters. It already has more than $2 million and it expands wide on Friday. 20th Century Women was next with an average of $27,800 in four theaters. It isn’t a major player during Awards Season, but it is picking up enough nominations to help it stick around in theaters. Patriots Day was down just 8% earning an average of $21,117 in seven theaters. Last week’s winner, Silence, fell to an average of $20,827 in four theaters. If it has a similar drop next week, it will put its wide release in jeopardy. The best limited release of the week was Paterson, which earned an average of $17,334 in four theaters. Toni Erdmann earned an average of $14,000 in three theaters during its first full week of release. La La Land continues to expand, but remained in the $10,000 club with an average of $12,738. The overall number one film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, was next with an average of $11,934, while the second place film, Sing, was right behind with an average of $10,647. More...

International Box Office: Rogue Remains in First with $135.5 million, While International Films Flourish

December 29th, 2016

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story remained in first place with $47.1 million in 54 markets for totals of $237.4 million internationally and $523.4 million worldwide. The film “struggled” over the weekend, but mainly due to the holidays. Christmas Eve is as big of a dead zone in most of Europe as it is here; in fact, a lot of theaters close on Christmas Eve. Likewise, a lot of theaters in the U.K. and Australia are closed on Christmas day. Even so, the film has already cracked $10 million in a number of major markets, starting with the the U.K., where it has $42.1 million. Germany and France are neck-and-neck with $21.8 million and $19.6 million respectively. The film has pulled in $17.84 million in Australia and $16.7 million in Japan. Next week we will have a better picture where the film is heading, as the holidays will be over in most places. I think $1 billion worldwide is a safe bet. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Which Releases will Make some Noise?

December 23rd, 2016

Silence

There are a number of limited releases coming out this week spread from Wednesday through Sunday. This includes several that are aiming for Awards Season glory: 20th Century Women, Hidden Figures, Silence, and others. There might be too many great films on this week's list, which means some will not live up to their box office potential. More...
