Night Shyamalan-directed sci-fi thriller After Earth, but if you’ve been paying attention to the film world over the last few months you probably realized that the design is very similar to some other recently released posters for 2013 blockbusters. In fact, it almost seems that every movie that is set to debut next year is getting a different version of the same poster. Don’t believe me?

  • Boxoffice feeding and why Salman is hatke

    Earlier to declare a movie a hit, First day, First weekend or first week business were not considered at all (as most of the A grade movies used to take 70-100& opening). Only after 3weeks (in the 90s) 5weeks(80s) 7-10 weeks (70s) and if the movie continue to trend and do well, then those film were called hits.

  • Best Male and Female performers of 2012- My views.

    2012 has been a fascinating year. Few films had unprecedented box office success as well as audience’s acceptance, while few films did not really set the box office on fire but surely placed themselves in hearts of audience.
