No clashes in 2018-Student Of Year 2 vs Super 30, Kedarnath vs Zero
Clashes are never healthy. The fact that we have only 4000-5000 screens to release films on, doesn’t give two films space to release together. We have previously seen how one film manages to crush the other, depending on how big they are. 2018, too, had a lot of impending clashes at the start of the year but only a few materialised. Like we saw what happened when Aiyaary took on Black Panther and Veere Di Wedding clashed with Bhavesh Joshi Superhero. The outcome tilted towards the better and, at times, a glossier film from the releases. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any clashes this year. August 15 will see the release of #Gold and #Satyamev_Jayate. But this year, filmmakers made an effort to stay away from such clashes as much as possible. Check out a few of them…
Three movies were supposed to release on August 15 but now only Gold and SJ will battle it out on Independence Day this year. The other film was the second sequel of #Yamla_Pagla_Deewana with the Deols starring in it again. It was called #YPD Phir Se. Guess the Deols realised it’s better not to crowd that date.
While Bollywood never even looked at Eid 2018, after Salman Khan’s Race 3 decided to make it his own, Hollywood tried to play ballsy by slotting a few films on that date. Jurassic Park Fallen Kingdom and Incredibles 2 decided to rival Salman at the box office but later better sense prevailed. Dinosaurs wreaked havoc at the box office a week before Race 3, while Incredibles 2 made a mark a week later. Everyone earned well so it was a win-win situation.
#Sushant_Singh_Rajput #Sara_Ali_Khan’s Kedarnath was supposed to rival Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero on December 21 this year, thanks to the director #Abhishek_Kapoor’s sudden interest in becoming brave. He even went all GAME ON! at the clash only to have a huge fallout with producer #Prernaa_Arora. The result is that now the film will release on November 30.
It’s not for nothing that #Tiger_Shroff worships #Hrithik_Roshan. He has professed that he would want to be a complete package like his HR. And guess Hrithik too feels the same. When it was announced that #Super_30 will clash with Student Of The Year 2 on November 23, we knew somebody will step down because both these men are fond of each other. Soon enough Hrithik’s Super 30 moved to January 25, 2019.
Although Black Panther did clash with a Hindi film, #Aiyaary, when it released, Dil Juunglee managed to avoid it. Not that it helped the film much but it could see Black Panther could ruin a lot for it. Dil Juunglee, thus, released on March 9 while Black Panther kept its February 16 date with the box office.
Tomb Raider wanted to rival #Ajay_Devgn’s Raid at the box office but that didn’t happen either. Tomb Raider released on March 9 instead, giving Raid a clear window at the box office on March 16.
