“21 Nollywood films shown in May accounted for 28 per cent of total ticket sales while 14 films, Hollywood films accounted for about 69 per cent, with “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” being the major outliner.

“Comparing April with May, ticket sales improved by about 12 per cent, with May being the highest-grossing month in
2022, so far.

Lee noted that the top five highest grossing films in May are: “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”; “King of Thieves”; “Sonic the Hedgehog2”; “The Lost City” and “The Perfect Arrangement”.

He said the films to be released across cinemas in June are: “Ex and Exes”; “Jurassic World:Dominion”; “The Order of Things”; “Flatus”; “Last Seen Alive”; “Light Year”; “Silent Baron”; “Black Phone”; “Elvis” and “Ile Owo”.

“It is exciting to see the mind-blowing box
office performance of titles released in
May.

“Like we all anticipated, “Doctor
Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” led
the park with over N330million to cosolidate on the continued monstrous
performance of Nollywood’s rave-of-the-moment, “King of Thieves”.

“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of
Madness” now holds the record of
the strongest weekend opening for
