We were tasked to drive awareness, engagement and online ticket sales (via VUE, Odeon, Cineworld websites) for international movie release Jab Harry Met Sejal starring Shah Rukh Khan for the UK territory.

Facebook & Instagram Advertising

Using box office statistics across the UK for Bollywood movies and powerful targeting capabilities we executed a paid social campaigns to geographically target users in regions with highest percentage of Indian cinema interests, consumption, box office sales and those who had shown strong interest in the promoted movie during pre-release periods.

With our partners, Powster, we put together a fully-responsive movie website with geolocated cinema listings and showtimes trackable to bookings through the likes of VUE, Odeon, Cineworld and smaller independents to aid a more centralised cinema ticket purchasing user journey for both offline and online marketing efforts.

"Sizeable Sales"

We were very impressed with Rick and the team at Disturb Digital. While we work on digital platforms extensively in India, this was the first time in the UK and they helped us understand, develop and build a campaign that delivered on our expectations.

They helped us drive sizeable sales at UK cinemas within 48 hours of movie release and reach over a million people in the UK with transparent reporting.

We look forward to marketing more of our movies with Disturb Digital.
