The film that is among the first few major Hollywood releases after the phenomenal success of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, has recorded an estimated Rs 5 crore in advance bookings, which is said to be the third-highest post-pandemic record, states a report on boxofficeindia.com.
This film has seen good advances at multiplexes and should take a good opening weekend. Although the numbers are nothing like ‘No Way Home’, the film has secured a spot in the top three.
According to the report, Tom Holland’s ‘No Way Home’ earned around Rs 35 crore nett in terms of advance bookings while the Ranveer Singh starrer ’83’ earned around Rs 10 crore nett over the extended Christmas weekend. ‘The Batman‘ has so far earned around Rs 5 crore nett, which has secured it a spot above recent Bollywood film releases.
While ‘The Batman’ has taken off to a flying start, it remains to be seen if the good reviews and buzz help the film sail through to record a successful run. It has been noted that although English film releases have higher advanced bookings, Hindi films usually catch up with their daily trend.
Rob’s Batman will go up against Amitabh Bachchan‘s ‘Jhund’ at the box office this weekend.
Meanwhile, on the international front, the Matt Reeves film is poised to deliver the second-best opening of the pandemic era. The film is estimated to make between $100 million and $125 million in its opening weekend.
