Opening May 24: Ishkq in Paris

Preity Zinta stars in Ishkq in Paris, the first film from her production house, PZNZ Media.

Ishkq in Paris gets a very limited opening in the Chicago area, debuting on Friday, May 24, 2013, at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles. It has a listed runtime of just 1 hr. 36 min.

Aurangzeb gets a second week in area theaters, despite shockingly low first-weekend receipts of just $91,000 in North America, according to Bollywood Hungama. (My usual source for figures, Box Office Mojo, doesn’t list Aurangzeb‘s U.S. returns.) Aurangzeb carries over at the Golf Glen 5, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville.

The Golf Glen 5 is also holding over Go Goa Gone for a third week, with earnings of $270,139 in the U.S. so far. As noted in my latest Streaming Video News, Go Goa Gone becomes available for rent on Eros Now starting this Friday.

Other Indian movies showing at the Golf Glen 5 this weekend include Mumbai Police (Malayalam) and the Tamil film Soodhu Kavvum.

Opening May 17: Aurangzeb

The crime thriller Aurangzeb — the latest offering from Yash Raj Films — opens in Chicago area theaters on May 17, 2013.

Aurangzeb opens on Friday at the AMC River East 21 in Chicago, Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 20 min.

The zombie comedy Go Goa Gone — which earned $170,044 in its first weekend in U.S. theaters — carries over for a second week at all of the above theaters. Having earned $338,433 in the U.S. so far, Shootout at Wadala gets a third weekend at the South Barrington 30.

Other Indian movies showing at the Golf Glen 5 this weekend include Bharya Athra Pora (Malayalam), Soodhu Kavvum (Tamil), and Tadakha (Telugu).

Friday also marks the release of The Reluctant Fundamentalist in India. I recommend it.
