Released on Thursday, Black Adam has now completed 7 days at the box office. The film had a good opening of 6.80 crores, holding steady during the first 3 days [17.70 crores] And then the holiday season helped the cause even more. As a result, the collection of the film was read in the first seven days 33.25 crores*, which is in the top-20 of 2022, even accounts for Hindi, Hollywood and South releases.
In fact the direct comparison is the Dwayne Johnson starrer Batman, which is also a DC product, albeit on the relatively darker side. It’s still a well-known franchise and it’s still standing in its first week 30.08 crores. Now it was pretty good since it came when the theaters were just starting to open after the pandemic and normalcy was being restored. Black Adam on the other hand has come at a time that is most unpredictable for the movie business as footfalls are rather inconsistent in theaters on a weekly basis.
Black Adam has taken a lead on Batman, although no one can say for sure that it will finally end his life statistics. 48.10 crores. Here, there is also a confrontation between Ram Setu and Shukra God, which diverts the attention of the audience. That said, there’s no competition from any of the new movies next week, so that should balance that out as well. It’s finally going to be a close call between the two Hollywood grossers that has kept the Indian box office busy at least.
* Estimation. Final marks are awaited
