2021 has been a very odd year at the Indian box office, with the pandemic lockdown keeping theatres shut for a major portion of the year, the audience has been eagerly awaiting big-screen releases. Now, with the Akshay Kumar starrer Sooryavanshi leading the charge followed by a host of other releases, it seems like things are beginning to return to normal. But, looking at the advance booking for the latest Marvel film, Spider-Man: No Way Home starring Tom Holland, trade predictions clearly state that the film is likely to be one of the biggest money-spinners.
In this box office report we take a look at the opening day collections of Spider-Man: No Way Home while comparing the same to previous Hollywood releases within the Indian market. Expected to open with a bang, the Tom Holland starrer took off to a flying start with Rs. 32.67 cr coming in on its opening day. With this Spider-Man: No Way Home has managed to become the second-highest all-time opening day grosser at the Indian box office. Though leading the list is the previous MCU release Avengers: Endgame that collected Rs. 53.10 cr, Spider-Man: No Way Home has managed to outperform other releases like Avengers: Infinity War that collected Rs. 31.30 cr, Fast And Furious Presents: Hobbs And Shaw that collected Rs. 13.15 cr, Captain Marvel that collected Rs. 12.75 cr, Deadpool 2 that collected Rs. 11.25 cr, The Lion King that collected Rs. 11.06 cr, Avengers: Age Of Ultron that collected Rs. 10.98 cr, The Jungle Book that collected Rs. 10.09 cr, Mission: Impossible - Fallout that collected Rs. 10 cr, and Spider-Man: Homecoming that had collected Rs. 9.36 cr.
Looking at the current craze and the advance booking rate, it is expected that Spider-Man: No Way Home will see immense growth in business over its opening weekend. In fact, with an increase in the number of shows, with some starting as early as 4 AM the film could well see its four-day extended weekend collections going past the Rs. 100 if not the Rs. 120 cr mark.
