Marvel’s latest movie and long-awaited sequel ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ has managed to receive a good response at the box office and collected around Rs 15 crore on the first day of its release, Friday, November 11.
Black Panther Wakanda Forever, which had created a fair deal of buzz among fans with its intriguing trailer and teaser, memorialises the late actor Chadwick Boseman, who played the role of T’Challa in its prequel movie, Black Panther. The actor died of cancer in 2020.
According to box office experts, the film has exceeded expectations as they had predicted that the movie would be getting a double-digit start in the range of Rs 10-11 crore in India.
However, after the movie’s day 1 collection, they are now expecting that this Marvel offering may easily cross 45 crores over the weekend and could also race towards the 100 crores mark in its second weekend.
Black Panther Wakanda Forever, a superhero movie directed by Ryan Coogler, faced limited competition from Amitabh Bachchan’s Uunchai and the Samantha-led Yashoda as these films cater to a different audience.
The last movie of Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4 has been released in India in four languages – English, Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil.
Black Panther Wakanda Forever’s story takes place after the death of T’Challa. Wakanda Forever features Letitia Wright and Lupita Nyong’o in the lead roles. The cast also features Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Dominique Thorne, and Michaela Coel.
