Hollywood film "Avengers: Age of Ultron", which did fantastic collection over the weekend, has showed considerable amount of drop in its business at the Indian box office on Monday.
"Avengers: Age of Ultron" released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu along with its English version. The film released in over 2,000+ screens in 2D, 3D, 4DX and IMAX 3D across India on 24 April. The movie opened to an earth-shattering response at the Indian box office, but it failed to beat the first-day collection record of "Fast and Furious 7", which has collected over ₹12 crore on its opening day.
The Joss Whedon-directed film witnessed decent growth on the following days. "Avengers: Age of Ultron" collected ₹36 crore net at the Indian box office in the first weekend. Its opening weekend business is 2.6 times higher than "The Avengers", which was released in 2012, but its collection is much lower than recent Hollywood release "Furious 7", which had raked in ₹50.05 crore.
"Avengers: Age of Ultron" had huge dip in collection on Monday. When compared to its opening day business, the movie witnessed over 50% fall down. On its fourth day, the film has raked in ₹5.40 crore net at the Indian box office, taking its four-day Indian total to ₹41.40 crore net.
On Tuesday, Bollywood trade analyst posted the day-wise break-up of the collection of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" on his Twitter page: "#AvengersAgeOfUltron holds very well on Monday. Fri 10.98 cr, Sat 11.85 cr, Sun 13.17 cr, Mon 5.40 cr. Total: ₹41.40 cr. India biz."
"Avengers: Age of Ultron" is next most hyped and highly promoted Hollywood movie in India after "Fast and Furious 7". As predicted by the trade experts, the movie has turned out to be the second big Hollywood money-spinner of 2015, but it has failed to break the records of "Furious 7".
