James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of the Water debuts to $40 million, topping No Way Home and Infinity War at the box office on day one.
The Indian box office for James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water is already off to a fantastic start. The movie made about 38–40 crore on Friday, its opening day. This indicates that it outperformed Spider-Man: No Way Home’s and Avengers: Infinity War’s first-day takings. However, it was still unable to topple Avengers: Endgame, which had the greatest Hollywood opening in American history.
Spider-Man: No Way Home made 32 crore while Avengers: Infinity War brought in 31 crore on the first day. With a 53 crore opening, Avengers: Endgame stood tall above them all. With a $2.9 billion worldwide box office haul, Avatar, Part 1 is still the highest grossing movie ever made.
Pandora, a moon, and the colonisation that threatens the native Na’vi humanoids that live there are the subjects of Avatar: The Way of Water. According to review website RottenTomatoes.com, 80% of critics have given it a positive rating. Movie Mom’s Nell Minow called it “more of an experience than a movie, but the experience is a wonderful place to visit.”
Like its predecessor, Avatar: The Way of Water has received positive reviews from critics. Everything is anticipated to perform incredibly well in the upcoming weeks. The cost of a regular IMAX seat is currently rising to $2500, it should be noted.
It made $17 million in US domestic ticket sales on Thursday, a respectable but unspectacular start for one of the most expensive movies in Hollywood history. According to a statement released by Disney on Friday, the movie made an extra $50.4 million in its first two days in foreign markets.
According to forecaster Boxoffice Pro, the movie is anticipated to gross between $145 million and $179 million in US and Canadian theatres through Sunday, as well as hundreds of millions more worldwide. That would still place it among the top films of the year and provide a much-needed lift for theatres that are still working to recover from the plague.
With its debut on more than 12,000 screens in the US and Canada and 40,000 screens worldwide, the movie will be one of Disney’s most widely distributed films ever. A rarity in the industry, it is being published simultaneously in every country on the planet. Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore Inc., points out that the film’s length—more than three hours—restricts the number of times it can be seen each day, making a high number of screens essential for maximising audience attendance.
