Barbie, the much-awaited fantasy-based romantic comedy film, is all set to be released on 21 July. It will be released theatrical approximately 750 screens in India. The main characters of the movie “Barbie” will be starring by Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.
The central board of film certification has given the movie a U/A rating; it has a 1 hour, 54 minutes (114 minutes) acceptable runtime. The team intends to produce a product that targets national chains in urban areas. However, the film Barbie is facing a clash with Oppenheimer, and the English movie-going public is expected to be divided during the weekend.
Barbie Set to Grace 750 Screens Across India
Early trends indicate that the film will debut on 700–800 screens in India. The film’s short runtime will encourage it to draw more viewers per screen than typical and provide it the capacity to have a strong debut. The sales trend has stunned the entire industry since the advances went live over the weekend.
Till Tuesday 3 PM, approximately 36000 tickets were sold for Barbie in the three national chains –Inox, PVR, and Cinepolis; it is expected to shut with somewhere between 65,000 and 75,000 tickets. Barbie has sold almost 80,000 units, with two days left on the weekend.
The advances also exceed those of some blockbuster Bollywood films. The distinction would be that release of the film Barbie will occur primarily in national chains; the movie won’t do much outside of multiplexes. As is the case with the majority of Hollywood movies, the film will have a high lead and low box office count.
On the financial front, the movie has already brought in Rs. 1.30 crore from the three chains. However, its opening day revenue is predicted to be between Rs. 5.00 and 6.50 crore.
Barbie is All Set for an Epic Launch in India
This would be a fantastic outcome for Barbie, as the bookings are the consequence of the character’s iconic popularity in the Indian market because of the song and the product market. Although the exhibitors may expand the showcasing during the weekend based on public demand, a solo release, and a larger screen size could have helped the movie earn much more than Rs 7 crore.
