One of the most anticipated films of 2022, Marvel Studios ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ was finally released in the theaters. But it’s proven opposite to expectations because the film has received mixed reviews from critics and the audience. Secondly, ‘Thor 4’ has not performed much like expectations at the box office, despite its box office now over $700 million.
Is Thor Love and Thunder Hit Or Flop?
According to reports, Marvel Studios ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’, released in the USA on 8 July 2022 in more than 4300 theaters, collected $69.55 million on its opening day and $144.16 million on its opening weekend at the domestic box office. Overall, ‘Thor 4’ has so far collected $326.09 million domestically and $395.51 million overseas, for a worldwide total of $721.61 million against its $250 million big production budget.
Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios spent almost more than $500 million on ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’, including prints and advertising costs, and despite the $500 million is a big amount, ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ completed it, and now, it’s in profit zone and according to experts, ‘Thor 4’ will ends its box office with $750 million global, and considering this, overall ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ is a successful film, and this film will earn a net profit of $50-100 million to the makers.
Even though ‘Thor 4’ is a success at the box office, it’s an average success, and in terms of reviews, it’s a total washout. One by one, phase 4 of MCU has proven a decline in Studio. It would not be wrong to say that Marvel Studios now needs to pay more attention to its films, especially on ‘Wakanda Forever’, because it is the future of MCU.
Talking about the critical response, then ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ received a 6.7/10* IMDb rating based on 162k+ votes, and on Rotten Tomatoes, it scored 65/100% based on 408 reviews.
