The fourth Marvel film to feature God of Thunder, fell short of the 100 crore mark in its fourth week at the box office. Nearing the end of its run in theatres, the film has earned an estimated Rs 99.35 crore.
According to boxofficeindia.com, the film should generate enough advertisements to cross the 100 crore benchmark in the next few days. Following the success of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ and ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’, the film was expected to hit the ticket windows. However, the film, which had a strong opening of Rs 79.10 crore, could not continue the winning streak.
‘Thor’ earned Rs 14 crore, Rs 4.39 and Rs 1.50 crore in its second, third and fourth week respectively.
On the international front, the film has crossed the $600 million mark. However, it still has a long way to go to match the numbers set by “Thor: Ragnarok”, which was released in 2017. The third film in the “Thor” franchise went on to make over $850 million in theatrical worldwide theatrical release.
It is unclear whether the film’s banning in the Gulf and other Middle Eastern countries hindered its box office success. It was reported that the Hollywood blockbuster was banned because it featured gay characters.
“The Ministry of Information has decided to stop the screening of one of the films to be screened in cinema halls in order to preserve and protect the moral values of the society,” the ministry said in a brief statement.
The ministry did not reveal the name of the banned film, but the screening of ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ was put on hold.
