After a record breaking advance ticket sales in India, Avengers: Endgame is all set to make records in terms of first weekend box office collections as well. The film, that finally released in India today amid much fanfare, is expected to rake in Rs 50 crores on Day 1, and a total of Rs 150 crores by the end of Sunday, say trade analysts.
Trade analyst Komal Nahata told PTI that the opening weekend figures may hover around Rs 150 crore plus, adding that the craze for the movie is unrivalled in India. There was a similar euphoria during the opening weekend of Baahubali 2.
"This kind of euphoria for advance booking was last seen during Baahubali 2 and for Dilwale Dhulania Le Jayenge as far as Indian films are concerned. The film should open at Rs 50.5 crore on the first day and about Rs 150 crore over the weekend," he said.
Distributor Rajesh Thadani too believes the film will open at Rs 50 crore on the first day. "Going by the advance bookings for the film and the craze for the film in India especially among the youngsters, it should open at least at Rs 50 crore. Over the weekend, it should gross close to Rs 200 crore. It is a big franchise so the numbers are also going to be huge."
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh has already predicted a tsunami at the box office.
