Avatar The Way of Water advance booking crosses ₹20 crores in India
At the box office, Avatar: The Way of Water is anticipated to have a successful debut in India. 20 crore tickets were pre-sold for the movie’s opening day across the nation. Only four movies this year have made more money than this amount: KGF Chapter 2, RRR, Brahmastra Part One Shiva, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Approximately 20 crores in advance bookings for the movie were made across India as of Thursday night, according to trade sources. Although it ranks among the top five advance booking collections in India this year, KGF Chapter 2 (80 crores), which reported the greatest advance booking in India’s history, set the bar far higher.
Avatar 2 has garnered more money thanks to higher average ticket prices, even though it has sold fewer tickets than several of the movies below it on the list of highest advance bookings. This is a result of the movie’s extensive 3D and IMAX release. For some IMAX performances, the cost of a ticket can go from $2500 to $3000 in select places. It’s interesting that a lot of these performances are sold out, even through Sunday.
The James Cameron movie is anticipated to earn between 40 and 50 crores at the Indian box office on Friday, a respectable start for any Hollywood production. In actuality, only a few Indian movies this year were able to reach this amount (KGF 2 and RRR only, in fact).
The movie is anticipated to make around $600 million worldwide in its opening weekend, which will put it on track to become one of the highest-grossing movies of all time if it continues to do well after the weekend.
If the audience enjoys Avatar 2 as much as reviewers have, the film’s mostly positive reviews should promote positive word-of-mouth. This will provide it with the vital support it needs to dominate the box office for the rest of the year.
The follow-up to the 2009 box office sensation Avatar, the all-time highest-grossing movie, is titled Avatar: The Way of Water. It may be difficult for the sequel to top that total (nearly $3 billion worldwide), but it is anticipated to make a significant impact on the global box office.
