He said the five Hollywood movies generated N378m from tickets sold across cinemas in the country in August.

Ajayi said the figure represented a 28 per cent increase compared to N294m realised in August 2021.

He, however, said there was a 19 per cent decline in tickets sold in August, as generated N471m in July.
