If an MCU film is released in India, we can be confident that it will be a success. Regardless matter what critics say, MCU fans are eager to see the film as quickly as possible in order to prevent spoilers! As a result, the film’s opening weekend box office numbers are excellent. Thor: Love and Thunder hasn’t been an exception.
Even after four installments, the Thor franchise continues to smash records at the box office. According to figures released by the studio on Sunday, Thor: Love and Thunder had a successful opening weekend in North America, earning a total of $143 million.
It’s a record-breaking achievement for the God of Thunder franchise, and it’s yet another triumph for the summer box office season of 2022.
The movie was successful in India as well, grossing 64.80 crore Indian Rupees over the course of four days there. Love and Thunder was made available to the public throughout the country one day earlier than usual. The movie had a strong opening day on Thursday, grossing 18.6 crore rupees, but then had a significant decline on Friday.
It made progress toward recovery on Saturday, but it regained its previous level of strength on Sunday. The majority of the expansion was due to the film’s dubbed Hindi version, which was released in the mass market.

How Did the Movie Go Over With the Viewers?
The Thor film series has expanded with each new installment, which is unusual for a franchise but not out of the ordinary for a Marvel one. The Dark World took in $85.7 million in 2013, and Ragnarok, released in 2017, brought in $122.7 million worldwide.
It is widely accepted that Waititi, who also directed Ragnarok, has revived the franchise by injecting it with humor, irreverence, and metal aesthetics.
The Rotten Tomatoes score presently stands at 68 percent fresh, based on the opinions of critics. According to exit polls, the film’s audience, which gave it a B+ CinemaScore, was primarily male (60 percent) and aged 18 to 34 (53 percent). $23 million of the global total came from IMAX screens, according to IMAX
Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Natalie Portman reprising their roles as Jane Foster and the Mighty Thor, return in Love and Thunder. As Zeus, Russell Crowe also appears, while Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher as the film’s villain.
The film’s production budget is estimated at $250 million, making it the most expensive Thor film to date.
Although Thor: Love and Thunder hasn’t been the year’s highest-grossing Marvel film, it is nonetheless notable. With Spider-Man: No Way Home’s $185 million opening weekend, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has seized the top spot in the movie office.
Second-placed The Minions brought in $45.6 million in the second weekend, bringing their domestic total to $210.1 million and their worldwide total to $399,9 million.
In its seventh weekend in theatres, Top Gun: Maverick came in third with $15.5 million. The Tom Cruise film, which has a domestic total of $597.4 million, is on track to become one of only 12 films ever to break the $600 million mark by Monday.
