Fox Star announces Feb release slate for India


MUMBAI: Riding high on the buzz generated by the Golden Globe winning and Oscar-nominated Slumdog Millionaire, Fox Star Studios is ready to release the Jennifer Aniston-starrer Marley & Me on 6 February in India.
Fox Star Studios is a joint venture company between Twentieth Century Fox and Asian media company Star.





Says Fox Star Studios India CEO Vijay Singh, “The film (Marley & Me) has already raked in huge numbers to make it to the top ten list at the US box office; and now we are taking it further to the Indian audiences. We will be releasing Marley & Me on 6 February across 50 screens. Our initial target would be the top 30 metros of the country.”


Directed by David Frankel, Marley & Me, which has had worldwide box office collections of approximately $155.8 million, is an American ‘dramedy’ that was released in the US and Canada on 25 December 2008.

The film had set a record for the largest Christmas Day box office ever with $14.75 million in ticket sales.

Additionally, Fox Star is also gearing up to release Valkyrie, a United Artists film directed by Bryan Singer and written by Christopher McQuarrie.

Reported to be made at a budget of $90 million, Valkyrie was also released on 25 December in the US. The Tom Cruise-starrer was released on 22 January in Germany while it hit the UK theatres on 23 January.

“We shall be releasing the film on 20 February in India wherein we plan to open in across approximately 75 screens,” states Singh.

Meanwhile, after a one-week run at the India box office, the Fox Star Studios-distributed Slumdog has managed a net gross of Rs 90 million. The studio had released the film with 350 prints (Hindi and English) in India.
