‘Kira & El Gin’ continues to dominate the Egyptian box office since its release over Eid al-Adha, earning a total of EGP 70 million in two weeks - making it one of the top ten highest earning films in Egyptian cinema.


Based on the novel ‘1919’ by Ahmed Murad, this action drama follows a group of Egyptian resistance soldiers during the 1919 revolution against British occupation. Ahmed Ezz and Karim Abdel-Aziz star in the titular roles, alongside Hend Sabry, Sayed Ragab, Ahmed Malik, Lara Iskandar, Hoda al-Mufti, and Ali Qassem.


Its current earnings put ‘Kira & El Gin’ above films like ‘El Badla’ (which earned over EGP 67 million) and ‘The Secret Men Club’ (which earned over EGP 59 million), but only time will tell if it will overcome other top earners such as 2019 action blockbusters ‘El Mamar’ (over EGP 74 million) and ‘Casablanca’ (over EGP 79 million), as well as ‘Welad Rizk 2’ (over EGP 99 million) and ‘The Blue Elephant 2’ (which reigns supreme at over EGP 102 million).
