As expected, ‘Avengers: End Game’ created history in India by emerging as a Highest Day 1 Earner of 2019. About Rs 63.21 crore Gross and Rs 53.10 crore Nett has been collected on Day 1 with a screen count of 2,845 and by releasing in four languages (English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil). This is also the highest opening a Hollywood Flick ever received in India so far.
A record opening for a Hollywood Flick is like a slap on the faces of Star Heroes in the country who are desperate for Holiday/Festival Releases. If ‘Avengers: End Game’ could earn so much revenue releasing on Non-Holiday, How much should the festive releases recover on Day 1?
‘Avengers: Infinity War’ which released in 2018 had a Day 1 opening of Rs 31.30 crore. The franchise is growing big every year..isn’t it?
Due to the craze for Avengers series, Multiplexes in India had gone for 24 Hours Shows. This strategic move paid off so well and the cash registers will continue to ring till the end of weekend.
It might be coincidence but ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ (April 28th) and ‘Avengers: End Game’ (April 26th) released in the same month with a gap of almost 1 year. The impact created by these money spinners will be remembered for a very long time.
