At the Indian box office, Avatar2: The Way of Water is off to a flying start. The film grossed 40 crore on its first day.
James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water is already off to a tremendous start. The film grossed around 38-40 crore on its first day, Friday. This means it outperformed Avengers: Infinity War and Spider-Man: No Way Home on the first day. It could not, however, topple the largest Hollywood opener the country has ever seen, Avengers: Endgame.
On day one, Avengers: Infinity War made 31 crore while Spider-Man: No Way Home made 32 crore. With a 53 crore opening, Avengers: Endgame stood tall above them all. With a cumulative box office collection of $2.9 billion, Avatar: The Last Airbender is the world’s most successful film.
Avatar: The Way of Water tells the narrative of Pandora, a moon, and the colonization that threatens the indigenous Naavi humanoid people that live on it. According to RottenTomatoes.com, 80% of critics endorse it, with Movie Mom’s Nell Minow calling it “more of an experience than a movie, but the experience is a wonderful place to visit.”
Avatar: The Way of Water, like its predecessor, received positive reviews from reviewers. Everything is expected to perform exceptionally well in the next weeks. However, it should be noted that the price of a standard IMAX seat is presently approaching $2500.
In the United States, it grossed $17 million in Thursday preview ticket sales, a good but not remarkable start for one of Hollywood’s most expensive pictures. According to Disney, the picture earned an extra $50.4 million in overseas markets in its first two days.
According to Boxoffice Pro, the picture is predicted to gross between $145 million and $179 million in US and Canadian cinemas through Sunday, and hundreds of millions more overseas. That would still place it among the year’s top films, and provide a much-needed boost for theatres still fighting to recover from the epidemic.
The film will be released on approximately 12,000 screens in the United States and Canada, as well as 40,000 overseas. It’s being launched simultaneously in every country across the world, which is unusual in the industry. According to Comscore Inc.’s Senior Media Analyst Paul Dergarabedian, the vast number of screens will be essential in allowing more people to view the film because its three-hour-plus length restricts the number of times it can be shown daily.
