‘Domitilla: The Reboot’ Earns $27 Million In Two Weeks
The film seems to be having trouble at the box office even though it has passed the 20 million naira threshold.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
In its second week of release, “Domitilla: The Reboot” has reached a significant milestone.
The remake of Zeb Ejiro’s 1990s blockbuster has now made a total of 27.01 million and is the only new Nigerian title in the much sought-after top 5 positions.
But the situation for the reboot is not improving. Despite having the highest opening weekend for a Nollywood film this year and almost surpassing the $30 million milestone, the picture is already experiencing a sharp fall in ticket sales.
The movie had a 45% dip during the weekend and a 42% total fall, according to data from the Cinema Exhibitors Association of Nigeria (CEAN).
The reboot faces a long, difficult road ahead of it because of this decline in ticket sales as well as the fact that foreign films are now dominating the domestic box office. Hopefully, the frequently overwhelming tug of nostalgia helps level the playing field.
Domitilla: The Reboot immerses the spectator in the perilous world of Nigerian sex workers, much like the Nollywood original.
This time, the plot centers on the decisions made by the four major female characters—Ekwutosi, Fisayo, Promise, and Madam Vee—as well as the consequences of those actions.
