Black Adam Box Office Report
DCEU's Black Adam made a decent opening of Rs 6 crore on its day one but compared to Marvel's Thor: Love and Thunder, the latter raked in thrice this amount. SpiderMan: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness earned even better.
"The opening is the fifth highest post pandemic for Hollywood in India and all the films above it have stronger branding," states a report in Box Office India. The report adds that the film will see a rise on Saturday, given it's a pre Diwali holiday, however, collections might drop again on Sunday and Monday, because, there's a big India v Pak cricket match followed by Diwali celebrations. The collections are expected to rise again post that.
