Avatar: The Way of Water is projected to enjoy a great opening weekend at the box office in India. Nationwide pre-sales for the film's opening day totaled 20 crore tickets. Only four films this year have made more money than this: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, RRR, Brahmastra Part One Shiva, and KGF Chapter 2.



As of Thursday night, trade sources estimate that approximately 20 crore in advance reservations had been booked for the film throughout India. Although KGF Chapter 2 (80 crore), which reported the largest advance booking in India history, set the bar far higher, it is among the top five advance booking collections in India this year.

Despite selling fewer tickets than any of the films listed below it on the list of highest advance booking, Avatar 2 has made more money because to higher average ticket pricing.

This is due to the film's widespread 3D and IMAX release. The price of a ticket for some IMAX presentations can range from Rs 2500 to Rs 3000 in specific locations.

A good start for any Hollywood production, the James Cameron film is expected to make between 40 and 50 crore at the Indian box office on Friday. In actuality, just a few Indian movies have reached this level this year (KGF 2 and RRR only, in fact). The movie is anticipated to make around $600 million worldwide in its first weekend, which will put it on track to become one of the highest-grossing movies ever if it can keep up its momentum after the weekend.

If the audience enjoys Avatar 2 as much as the critics have, the film's overwhelmingly positive reviews should promote positive word-of-mouth. This will provide it the crucial backing it requires to rule the box office for the remainder of the year.


Avatar: The Way of Water is the sequel to the all-time highest-grossing film and 2009 box office hit Avatar. Although it could be challenging for the sequel to surpass that sum (close to $3 billion worldwide), it is projected to have a big effect on the global box office.
