Monitoring Desk

MUMBAI: Parmanu, The Story Of Pokhran, a Bollywood movie on India’s nuclear test in 1998, will release across 300 screens in Pakistan, said director Abhishek Sharma on Friday.

At the film’s trailer launch, the team was asked about plans for the film’s release in Pakistan. “It’s coming in 300 screens in Pakistan,” director Abhishek Sharma quipped. It was clarified later that he was joking.

On a serious note, John said, “To answer that question, this is not an anti-Pakistan film, it is a very pro-India film. So, we are very clear this is a film about India and we are going to celebrate this.

“If we start thinking about other markets, we would be compromising on our film. We wanted to tell the story as it is.”

John further told the media, “We are not here to throw mud on anybody’s face, we want to keep it clean. We want to keep the controversy aside. We are confident about the film and the subject that we have chosen.”

 ‘Avengers’ continues its dominance at the box office

Monitoring Desk

LOS ANGELES: The three-day take by the Disney/Marvel superhero epic gave it the second-highest second weekend of all time, behind only “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Only five movies have hit the $100 million mark in their second weekends, according to Variety.com.

“Avengers” sees a veritable army of superheroes — including Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Ironman (Robert Downey Jr.) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) — joining forces to save the universe from powerful purple alien Thanos (Josh Brolin).

Globally, “Avengers” has hit the $1 billion mark in just 11 days — the fastest ever — and it has yet to open in China.

But with its enormous success, “Avengers” has left little oxygen for its competitors. The second-highest North American grosser, new rom-com “Overboard,” trailed in its distant wake at just $14.8 million. Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez star in the Lionsgate remake of a 1987 movie about a struggling single mother who persuades a rich playboy with amnesia that they are married.

In third spot was Paramount s sci-fi horror film “A Quiet Place,” at $7.6 million. The near-wordless production stars actor/director John Krasinski and his real-life wife Emily Blunt as a couple silently struggling to protect their family from blind aliens that track their prey by sound.

STX Films  comedy “I Feel Pretty,” starring Amy Schumer as a self-conscious woman who suffers a head injury and then sees herself as ravishingly beautiful, was fourth at $4.9 million.

And in fifth was “Rampage,” from Warner Bros., at $4.6 million. The film follows Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson as a primatologist who befriends an albino gorilla, which grows to enormous size after a rogue experiment before teaming up with Johnson against invading monsters.
