Power Star Pawan Kalyan and Wizard of words Trivikram’s Agnyaathavaasi is all set for grand release on Jan 10th all over the world. USA Premiers are being planned in more than 550+ theaters as never done before for any Indian movie. Some of the critics are already countering that those many theaters may be not required and it’s kind of more than double the required count. Also, more expenses with more locations. More than half million will go for expenses which means $ 1 M gross.
Off course fans are very happy with the count but whether distributor will make money or not we will know in couple of hours. To get into profit zone it has to cross $5 M on total run.
Overseas distributor expecting $2 million from premiers shows? Is it possible? It may not be that easy to get $ 2 million gross and expect Baahubali-The Conclusion No other South Indian movie collected $2 million and above on Premiere day. If it crosses two million then it will set a new record in Premiere collections apart from number of theaters. Analysts expecting around $1.2 M to $1.5 M from Premiere shows.
As per sources it already pre-sale is around $500k+ and another 36 hours left for Premiers to start. Shows in USA are starting @ 12 Noon EST.
