Some early estimates for me:

Breaking Dawn 1 - 340M

Sherlock Holmes 2 - 380M

Tintin - 500M

Chipmunks 3 - 230M

Mission Impossible 4 - 280M

The Muppets - 2700m

Happy Feet 2 - 260M

Its a hard summer this one, lots of wild cards!

It was a lot more popular in the 80s and 90s (a lot of people close to my age grew up reading it). the kids nowadays don't take much interest though.I am expecting around $2m opening and $5m total. It is opening against a major Bollywood movie so that will hurt its chances.

The India adventure starts for Tintin


After taking Europe's box office by storm, the spiky-cropped, orange-haired reporter arrives at the Indian box office with his Wire Fox Terrier companion Snowy. The Adventures of Tintin - The Secret of the Unicorn directed by Steven Spielberg will be releasing all over India on Friday. Certain multiplexes are premiering the movie on Thursday on account of the local holiday in some centres in agreement with the movie's distributors in India-Sony Pictures India.

"We want it to become the highest grosser in India in this genre (animation)," says Kercy Daruwala, Managing Director of Sony Pictures India. The highest grosser ever in India in this genre was Kung Fu Panda 2 which according to industry estimates collected Rs. 25 crore (gross).

The highest grosser in the animation genre for Sony Pictures India was The Smurfs released in July which grossed Rs 7 crore. Daruwala expects Tintin to garner gross revenue of around Rs. 20 - 25 crore which is in sync with the industry expectations of Rs. 22 crore.

The movie, which is dubbed in Hindi for the Indian market, will be screened at 370 screens throughout the country of which 60 per cent is in 3D. The number of screens is 40 per cent more than the previous biggest animation release in India - Kung Fu Panda 2.

The movie opened to packed halls on Thursday morning throughout multiplexes. "What we expect from a Spielberg movie is always something special. The shows were practically a sell out. The initial feedback from the public is very good," says Rahul Singh, Vice President, Operations of PVR Cinemas.
