Commando 2 And Logan 1st Day Box Office Collection Report: Hugh Jackman’s Logan had a better opening than Vidyut Jammwal’s Commando 2.
Yesterday saw the release of Commando 2, Logan and some small Bollywood movies. As predicted by us, Hugh Jackman’s Logan got off to a better start than Commando 2. Commando 2 is a sequel to 2013’s film Commando which was a decent hit at the Box Office. Logan is a sequel to X-men series and features Hugh Jackman who is portraying Wolverine for the last time. Let’s have a look at Commando 2 and Logan 1st day box office collection report in detail:
Commando 2 1st Day Box Office Collection Report
As expected, Commando had a slow start in the morning shows on day 1. The buzz was there which has resulted in an average opening. Commando 2 reported 15% occupancy in the morning shows. The start was better in mass centres as action films have a good fan following in these circuits. The movie failed to show huge growth in the later part of the day. The overall first day occupancy was in the range of 25% to 30% with mass circuits performing well in the evening shows.
As per early estimates, Commando 2 first day collection will be in the range of 3.5 to 4 crores. This is exactly what we predicted for the first collection. The reviews have been negative and it remains to seen, how much the movie will grow from here? Commando 2 had a poor opening day in overseas as it grossed $90K in Gulf on Thursday.
Logan 1st Day Box Office Collection Report
Logan is the last film for Hugh Jackman in which he is portraying Wolverine. The buzz for the movie was huge before release which has resulted in a good opening at the Box Office. Released on around 700 screens, Logan reported 25-30% occupancy in the morning shows at multiplexes and high-end metros. It witnessed superb growth in the evening and night shows. Early trends suggest that Logan 1st day collection will be in the range of 4 to 5 crores.
Once again, it’s a Hollywood movie which has opened better than a Bollywood movie. This has been the case for the last two years. Hollywood movies have performed exceptionally well in India. Last year, the third highest grosser was ‘The Jungle Book’.
The other releases, Luv Shuv Pyar Vyar and Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai struggled to get all India release.
