He also said that there was a seven percent improvement in ticket sales in March as N301.48 million were generated in February.

He listed the highest grossing movies in Nigeria for the month of March as: “The Batman; Uncharted, The Contractor, A Simple Lie and “Turning Red”.

“For the month of March 2022, we have ticket sales of N346,607,688.00, this is quite encouraging compared to what we had in February, N301,480,148.00.

“The Batman sold the most tickets, accounting for 39 percent of box office receipts for the month of March.

“Comparatively, 2022 has continued to post higher box office receipts than 2021, with March showing a 45% improvement over 2021 performance and 7% growth over February 2022.

“Of the 41 films shown in Nigerian theaters in the month of March, Hollywood accounted for 75 per cent of revenue despite only having 14 titles,” he said.

Lee noted that the films that will be released during the month of April are: I’m Nazzy, Sonic The Hedgehog, Saint Mark, Morbius, Bad Guys, King of Thieves and Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.

He said others were: The Blood Covet; Twenty Nine, Ben from Downstairs, The Lost City, Rainy Day, The Man for the Job, Memory and Downtown Abbey: A New Era and A Hunt for Joe.

“As we bid farewell to the first quarter, we can’t wait to unravel the package for the second, starting with a promising installment of Marvel’s new superhero movie, “Morbius”.

“Its trailer suggests a mix of action, science fiction, thriller and horror; we can’t wait to see how moviegoers in our region will respond. Horrors have not achieved the best numbers at the Nigerian box office,” he said.
