Transformers Rules UAE’s Eid Box Office

Our box office report is finally back and we have the official figures for the UAE box office receipts during the Eid week!

After a slow 4 weeks during Ramadan, box office revenues were back in full force with 6 new film releases including 3 major US releases, a major Egyptian blockbuster, a major Hindi blockbuster and smaller animation and comedy movies.

With Transformers, Planet of the Apes, Made in Egypt, The Purge and Tammy battling for box office gold, it was Transformers which eventually ruled during Eid, although revenues for the other movies was also quite strong.

All in all, Eid revenues tallied 6 million USD (around 20 million AED) – a fantastic start for the post summer season!
