Highlights
  • The fourth Thor film has grossed $500 million worldwide
  • Ticket sales in Asia-Pacific regions have gone down by 64 percent
  • Jurassic World Dominion is the third highest-grossing film of 2022

Thor: Love and Thunder has collected an impressive $500 million (about Rs. 3,994 crore) at the worldwide box office, since its release on July 8. Despite the dinged reviews, the Chris Hemsworth-led film is holding strong, with the third-highest opening for a Hollywood film since Sam Raimi's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Meanwhile, Minions: Rise of Gru stands at $533 million (about Rs. 4,620 crore), thanks to the “Gentleminion” memes on Tiktok. Jurassic World Dominion, on the other hand, has surpassed the $900 million (about Rs. 7,193 crore) mark.

The latest Taika Waititi film saw a drop of 59 percent outside the US — worse than Doctor Strange 2, which saw a 56 percent drop in the second week. On a regional basis, Asia-Pacific witnessed the biggest slide in ticket sales, going down by 64 percent. Europe/Middle East sees a 56 percent decrease, while sales in Latin America dropped by 53 percent. It seems the reviews are impacting Thor: Love and Thunder, with word of mouth also having a say on the newest MCU entry's box office prospects in the second weekend.
