UNITED STATES: Thor: Love and Thunder mark the fourth instalment in the God of Thunder’s MCU journey. Since the trailer’s release, the movie has generated a ton of enthusiasm, most of which is attributable to Gorr the God butcher’s involvement. Judging by the movie’s box office performance, the hype appears justified.
The Chris Hemsworth starrer approaches close to the total ₹50 crores mark and has India’s fifth-highest opening for a Hollywood film. Following a strong start at the box office, Academy Award winner Taika Waititi’s direction expands on the Space Viking’s adventure.
The Space Viking saga has become the fifth-highest collecting film in India
Thor 4 resumed its normal course on Saturday, where it experienced significant growth of between 55 and 60 per cent and took in revenue comparable to its first day’s. On its fourth day, the Space Viking epic collected close to net revenue of ₹50 crores, bringing its total to $302 million globally.
As per BoxOfficeIndia.com, on its first day of release, the Chris Hemsworth starrer film performed decently at the box office with a collection of ₹18 crores on a non-holiday basis. Thor: Love and Thunder, which opened on July 7, had a 40–50% occupancy rate. However, the film experienced a 30 per cent of drop on Friday when it collected ₹13 crores only.
Box Office India states that the Chris Hemsworth-starring movie struggles to generate profits compared to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The second instalment of The Master of Mystics Arts made almost ₹30 crores in India on its opening day and ₹120 crores in less than two weeks.
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.
