Avengers: Age of Ultron 4th Day Box Office Collection
Three weeks post the release of Fast and Furious 7, another Hollywood film has taken over the Indian screens. Marvel’s superhero film Avengers: Age of Ultron has hit the jackpot in India and has collected Rs 35.74 crore in the opening weekend. Featuring almost all the Marvel superheroes, the much awaited eleventh film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe – Avengers: Age of Ultron – is a sequel to the 2012 release Avengers. The film minted Rs 10.95 crore on its opening day and with each passing day, the collection at the box-office is just soaring. It went on to collect Rs 11.85 cr on Saturday and a whopping Rs 12.91 cr on Sunday.
The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson and James Spader. Written and directed by Joss Whedon, Avengers: Age of Ultron is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series The Avengers, first published in 1963.
Avegers: Age of Ultron Monday Box Office Business
There was never any chance at all for the likes of Ishq Ke Parindey, Jai Ho! Democracy and Kaagaz Ke Fools to score at the box office, considering the kind of product they looked, the release they got and the mood of audience when it comes to stepping into theaters. With none of the three films even managing to find whole hearted attention from critics, majority of whom chose to ignore them completely and instead enjoy a Friday evening off, the writing was clear on the wall as audiences too followed suit. As a result, even the combined collections of these three films couldn’t cross the 1 crore mark. After a tremendous opening weekend, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” remained rock steady on its 4th Day too and minted about Rs.5.40 crores at the Indian box office.
Now this is a pathetic state of affairs as such kind of films isn’t what an average moviegoer bargains for. As a matter of fact, one wonders how these films were even sanctioned and even came into being as they apparently didn’t seem exciting on paper itself. Fourth release of the week, Lateef, has been pushed to 15th May but that would only reap in some benefit provided there is some promotion on the cards for the Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer. Otherwise, competition with Bombay Velvet on this day won’t really help this much-delayed stuck-in-the-cans film.
