UNITED STATES: The God of Thunder debuted with flying colours, unleashing a captivating blend of romance and humour that contributed to a stellar box office performance. Thor’s fourth movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe earned ₹ 30 crores in India and more than $100 million worldwide.
Following a strong start at the box office, Academy Award winner Taika Waititi’s direction expands on the Space Viking’s adventure.
The Chris Hemsworth starrer gets a decent run at the box office
As per BoxOfficeIndia.com, on its first day of release, the Chris Hemsworth starrer film performed decently at the box office on a non-holiday basis. Thor: Love and Thunder, which opened on July 7, had a 40–50% occupancy rate. The film made a respectable ₹30 crores net throughout its opening two days, but its second day saw an unexpected downturn. Even still, the film’s box office performance isn’t as strong as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
The success of Doctor Strange 2 at the box office was greatly influenced by Spider-Man: No Way Home. The movie had Doctor Strange as its main character, and the finale also featured the trailer, which raised the bar. The Thor fandom, however, has a vast gap since the character’s previous appearance in Avengers: End Game.
According to Deadline, the film made almost $70 million on Friday in the US, including $29 million on Thursday. Additionally, it is predicted that the film will make more than $250 million over the weekend.
