Wonder Woman 1984 will open in India later today and although the film has not done wherever it has been released so far the hope is that it takes the box office in India a notch higher in these pandemic times. The film has an extended weekend though the previews starting post 5pm today (Wednesday) will be hit by night curfew in Maharashtra which means shows have to wrapped up by 10pm. This will lead to only one show on most of the screens so very limited business in Maharashtra..
The first target is to be better the numbers of Tenet which has been the best performer since cinemas opened in October. The advance is better than Tenet but its also a near five day holiday weekend while Tenet was a normal three day weekend. Also majority of the business is coming in advance at present and the on the day audience is actually less or at least that was the case when Tenet releases. Hopefully the figures on Thursday for Wonder Woman 1984 are higher than what Tenet did on day one (1.15 crore nett).
Wonder Woman in 2017 did 2.20 crore nett on day one in English only and though technically Wonder Woman 1984 should beat this number as its been dubbed and a far wider release but the flip side is the pandemic to consider. Also there will be a ******* HD print available online from the 25th December as it releases on HBO Max in USA. Still if the on the day audience is in significant higher numbers than Tenet then maybe the opening day numbers of Wonder Woman (2017) can be challenged on Friday and that will mean an improving box office in India.
