Skyscraper had a low start on an opening day in India and it only managed to earn a little over Rs. 1 crores. The action film failed to impress the critics and received below average reviews. Skyscraper faced competition from the holdover as well as the new releases and failed to show its magic in the theatres. Skyscraper first day collection is similar to Sanju 4th Friday. The holdover Hindi release, Soorma also witnessed a huge drop on its second Friday and could manage to hold well at the box office. Similar was the story of the Holdover Hollywood release, Ant-Man and the Wasp and it also witnessed a huge fall on its 8th day.

Skyscraper Opens Poorly in the theatres

Dwayne Johnson’s action film, Skyscraper didn’t quite manage to connect with the audience and witnessed a poor occupancy in its theatres. Also, the stiff competition from the new Hindi release, Dhadak affected its run at the box office and it could only earn around Rs. 1.30 crores on its first day. Skyscraper first day collection hints at a low growth of the film on its first Saturday. It will be interesting to be seen how the film holds on its second day amidst the competition from the other films.

Soorma and Ant-Man Drops on Huge Grounds

Soorma movie earned over Rs. 21 crores in its first week and held decently in the theatres. The biopic had a bad day on its second Friday and witnessed a fall of around 50% from Thursday. The stiff competition from the new Hindi release, Dhadak affected its earning and it fell at big levels. Soorma 2nd Friday collection failed to cross even Rs. 1 crores mark and earned Rs. 0.85 crores. It is difficult for the film to sustain well in its second week and Soorma would end its theatrical run with a decent total.

Ant-Man and the Wasp also dropped badly on its second Friday. The film performed similarly to Soorma on its 8th day and earned a little below Rs. 1 crores. It started its run at the box office on a solid note but didn’t maintain itself well on the weekdays. The total of the film has crossed the mark of Rs. 29 crores in the theatres. More updates about the film will be made available soon.
