Fox Star Studios takes top Hollywood spot in India

#1
MUMBAI: With a string of blockbusters in 2009, starting with Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire and ending with James Cameron's Avatar, Fox Star Studios has raked in Rs 1.5 billion through its releases in India.

Just into its second year, Fox Star Studios has overtaken other Hollywood studios to sit atop in India.

While the first release Australia created waves at the box-office with the sizzling chemistry between Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman, the success of
8-Oscar winner Slumdog Millionaire put the studio ahead of its contemporaries in 2009.

Sequels like X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Night at the Museum 2 performed well, beating their simultaneous Bollywood releases at the box-office.

Ice Age 3 released in 3D was a huge hit with kids and adults alike. Grossing
Rs 90 million, the film became one of the the highest-grossing Hollywood animated film in India.

While Marley & Me touched the hearts of Indian audiences with its heart-rending tale, Bride Wars found an instant connect with the female audiences.

Fox's foray into Indian cinema with Quick Gun Murugan, however, did not pay off with the movie bombing at the box-office.

Finally, it was James Cameron's Avatar that did the magic by smashing all records at the Indian and international box-offices. The film has already crossed a collection of Rs 5.5 million in India, beating Titanic as the biggest ever Fox film in India.

Says Fox Star Studios India CEO Vijay Singh, "Through our Hollywood releases round the year, we have garnered Rs 1.5 billion. We promise an even more entertaining 2010 beginning with My Name is Khan!"

Fox Star Studios' slate in 2010 includes Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief in February, Amelia in March, Date Night, Wall Street 2 in April, Alvin & the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel in May, The 'A' Team in June, Knight & Day, Predators in July and Chronicles of Narnia 3 in December.
