The advances indicate a good start for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever at the box office, and the first day biz should be in the range of Rs 12 to 14 crore. Read details
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is ready to entertain the audience with its next release, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The film has been certified U/A by the Central Board of Film Certification, with an approved run time of 2 hours and 44 minutes. Among other things, the trailer of Avatar: Way Of Water has been hard-attached to the film print across the globe. The film is led by Letitia Wright, with Tenoch Huerta as the antagonist.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is slated for a wide release in India, much like all other Marvel films. The release size on the screen count front will be similar to Thor: Love and Thunder, though on the showcasing front, it would stay below, as the former had opted for a 24*7 screening in India. Yet, Black Panther has adequate showcasing to put up a big number. There is an emotional aspect attached to the franchise due to the unfortunate demise of Chadwick Boseman too, the original Black Panther. The initial reviews of the film are out and the response is overwhelming with most terming it the best and most emotional Marvel Film since Avengers: End Game.
Talking of advance booking, the film has sold approximately 75,000 tickets in the three national chains as of Wednesday evening, and the final tally will be in the north of 1 Lakh tickets, which is a good result. As is the case with all Disney films, the pricing is at the blockbuster levels and this should help the collections as the brand has cultivated a loyal audience for itself that is not impacted by prices.
The advances indicate a good start for Black Panther at the box office, and the first day biz should be in the range of Rs 12 to 14 crore, though a lot of it depends on the momentum it gains on the day of release. A positive talk should make this number attainable, and then it would be about the growth over the weekend. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for box office reporting of Black Panther.
