earning on the first day
Marvel Studios started getting an idea of the popularity of its films among the Indian audience almost four years ago when the MCU film ‘Avengers Infinity War’ released in more than two thousand screens. After this, in the film ‘Avengers Endgame’, this number was about three thousand and ‘Spiderman No Way Home’ released last year was the first such film of the MCU which was released simultaneously on more than three thousand screens. The film was released on 3264 screens. MCU’s film ‘Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness’, released this year, got about two and a half thousand screens and now the film ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ has been released in about 2800 screens. According to the initial figures of the first day received till Thursday night, the film has made a great opening of about Rs 22 crore in India.
great business done in hindi
The film ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ did better than expected business in Hindi speaking states on its first day of release. It was understood that this film will take an opening of about five crore rupees in the Hindi belt, but defying these estimates, it has taken a spectacular opening of seven crore rupees on the very first day only from the Hindi version. The opening of the English version of the film was around Rs 13 crore on Thursday. The film is also expected to earn around Rs 2 crore from the rest of the language versions.
‘Avengers Endgame’ highest grossing
The highest grossing MCU film in India so far has been ‘Avengers Endgame’, which earned Rs 373.22 crore at the box office in 2019. The first three highest grossing Hollywood films released in India are from MCU. The film ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ has been made at a cost of about $ 185 million i.e. about Rs 1463 crore. It is also considered to be the most expensive film among Thor’s solo hero films. This time director Taika Waititi took Thor’s character to a different level in the previous film ‘Thor Ragnarok’, similarly this time too he has done some selective experiments with the character of Thor in the film ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’. With this film, Thor became the only MCU character to have had four solo releases.
