Top highest grossing Hollywood films in India; Thor: Love and Thunder Tenth
Thor: Love and Thunder has grossed Rs. 128.20 crores ($16.15 million) during its thirty-two days run so far, making it the tenth highest grossing film from Hollywood in India.
Thor: Love and Thunder has almost exhausted its run at the Indian box office, grossing over Rs. 50 lakhs in its fifth weekend. The latest Marvel Studios' offering has grossed Rs. 128.20 crores ($16.15 million) during its thirty-two days run so far, making it the tenth highest grossing film from Hollywood in India. It is also the fifth Marvel film to be in the top ten grosser, including Doctor Strange in the Multiverse which was released earlier in May this year.
The previous Thor movie, 2017 release Ragnarok, had collected Rs. 77.60 crores and was the thirteenth-highest grosser from Hollywood at the time of its release. Love and Thunder bettered Ragnarok by 65 per cent, which is akin to the growth of the Marvel brand in India in the last few years. It could have been even better with the sort of initial film got but the word of mouth was pretty unremarkable and the legs of the film weren’t all that impressive. Still, Rs. 100 crores plus gross in India is a big number for Hollywood film.
The top ten highest-grossing Hollywood movies at the Indian box office are as follows:
- Avengers: Endgame - Rs. 442.30 crores
- Avengers: Infinity War - Rs. 296.50 crores
- Spider-man: No Way Home - Rs. 261.90 crores
- The Jungle Book - Rs. 259.30 crores
- The Lion King - Rs. 184.70 crores
- Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness - Rs. 161 crores
- Avatar - Rs. 138.95 crores
- Furious 7 - Rs. 137.40 crores
- Jurassic World - Rs. 128.80 crores
- Thor: Love and Thunder - Rs. 128.20 crores (32 days)
The list of top grossers is very top heavy, as you have a near Rs. 450 crores movie at the top and near Rs. 300 crores as runner-up, but the tenth position is just over Rs. 100 crores. A huge growth has come in the top position over the last seven years, going from Rs. 139 crores to nearly Rs. 450 crores, but other than Marvel and Disney the business has sort of remained stagnant, in fact even declined in some cases.
