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 $750 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 $343.25 million domestically and $417.67 million overseas, for a worldwide total of $760.92 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, for a break-even mark of $650 million. Despite the $650 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 $760 million global, and considering this, overall ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ is a successful film, and this film will earn a profit of $75 million to the makers from box office.
Even though ‘Thor 4’ is a success at the box office, it’s an small 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 6.2/10* IMDb rating based on 368k+ votes, and on Rotten Tomatoes, it scored 64/100% based on 434 reviews.
