After the tremendous run of their prehistoric fun family film ‘The Croods’, Fox Star Studios have added yet another splendid success to their 2013 kitty as EPIC has garnered the 5th biggest animation opening for India!!
Having released first in India, a week ahead of its international counterparts, EPIC opened to a 2.52 cr NETT box office despite a crowded Box Office with simultaneous releases of high profile Hollywood releases such Amitabh Bachchan's 'The Great Gatsby’ and Mira Nair’s ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ whose figures are far behind those of EPIC.
This is the 5th biggest animation opening in India after Ice Age 4, Kung Fu Panda 2, Madagascar 3 and The Croods. Boosted by critical and popular acclaim, the stunning 3D comedy-fantasy adventure has triggered a phenomenal word of mouth for its family content and visual banquet.
Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios speaks on the happy occasion,"We are delighted with the fantastic weekend opening for EPIC following the superb success of ‘The Croods’. With imaginative storytelling and an emotional appeal, it is the perfect feel-good holiday film for the entire family."
