AY Makun's much talked about movie '30 Days in Atlanta' has been announced as Nollywood’s Highest Grossing Cinema Movie of all time, after it amazingly grossed N76million in seven weeks of showing on Cinema Screens across Nigeria.

The announcement was made at Silverbird Galleria by Guy Bruce, the Director, Silverbird Distribution Company, at a special reception to celebrate the Cast and Crew of the Movie.

“That it is N76 million is quite impressive for a Nollywood film, and we are so proud of AY. We hope he does more movies.”

Through The Glass, a movie by Stephanie Okereke is estimated to have grossed a total of N10 million in 2008, while Kunle Afolayan's 'Figurine' grossed N20 million. Ije in 2010 grossed N57 million, Chimamanda Adichie’s Half Of A Yellow Sun grossed N60 million while and October 1st reached the N50 million mark. These are all box-office estimates provided by Uwem Jacobs, the West Africa Agent for United International Pictures, South Africa.

“30 Days In Atlanta is still in the cinemas, and if we extrapolate our data judging by exit polling from cinema guests, performance and screen averages,” Moses Babatope, Executive Director of Filmhouse Cinemas said, the Movie might well gross over N100million after Christmas.
