"Welad Rizk 3: El Qadya" (Sons of Rizk 3: The Knockout) was No. 1 at the box office on Sunday, the first day of Eid al-Adha, raking the highest daily revenues in Egyptian cinema history with EGP18,163,554.

"Welad Rizk" first premiered in 2015 and hails from screenwriter Salah El Gehiny and director Tarek Al Eryan. The third entry hit theatres on June 12.

The film features an all-star ensemble cast that includes Ahmed Ezz, Amr Youssef, Karim Qassem, and Mohamed Mamdouh.

It also sees familiar faces such as Sayed Ragab, Eyad Nasser, Bassem Samra, and Mohamed Lotfy as well as newcomers Maged El Kedwany, and Asmaa Galal.

Karim Abdel Aziz will also make an appearance in the third outing. Moreover, Asser Yassin is set to reappear as Al Shayeb in the installment and will have more screen time for the character in preparation for the "Welad Rizk" spin-off film "Al Shayeb" (The King).

However, Ahmed Dawood nor Ahmed El Fishawy will not be returning for the third entry.

During a press conference for the "Welad Rizk 3", Al Eryan opened up about the reason behind the franchise's popularity and noted that the ties between brothers were the main reason for the audience's connection to the work, despite its heavily loaded with action scenes.

The filmmaker added that the franchise is getting 4, 5, and 6 installments.

Moreover, producer Salah El-Gehiny added that for the first time in Egypt, a film production reached a fourth entry and beyond, indicating that he still dreams of presenting a film franchise similar to Marvel.
