Dunki Disappoints, Salar Rocks and Aquaman 2 hits the Pre-Christman Box office Collection

“Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” dominated the international box office with a $108 million debut weekend. “Aquaman 2” from Warner Bros. and DC Studios also topped the weekend box office in the United States.

Dunki, starring Shah Rukh Khan, is in tenth place with over 2.7 million weekend collections.

“Salaar Part 1 – Ceasefire,” an Indian action epic headlined by “Baahubali” actor Prabhas and directed by “K.G.F.” filmmaker Prashant Neel, started in third place with $39 million. This includes $5.5 million in North America, where it finished third.

Aquaman 2: The Lost Kingdom is a sequel to Aquaman.

At the box office, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is a colossal hit. The global figures over the weekend are believed to be 108 million, 80 million from other countries [China is the largest contributor with 30 million], and 28 million from the United States. The film has gathered 12 million dollars from its premiere in the United States, bringing the total global weekend to 120 million dollars, a terrible figure.

The picture, directed by James Wan, Aquaman 2 stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Nicole Kidman, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Michael Keaton in major parts.

Dunki Drama competes with Aquaman 2

Another Indian film that is competing with Aquaman 2 is the immigration drama-comedy “Dunki,” starring Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and directed by hitmaker Rajkumar Hirani (“3 Idiots,” “PK”), finished fourth with $22.9 million over the weekend. The picture grossed a total of $23.8 million when it debuted on Thursday, December 21.

Monday, Christmas Day, is a public holiday in India, but because the celebration is not the country’s prominent one, unlike in the West, audiences are anticipated to increase for “Salaar” and “Dunki,” as cinemas remain open.

The well-reviewed cartoon feature “Migration,” which had a $20.2 million opening weekend and has a total of $34.2 million after two weekends, rounded out the top five. You can also read our previous comparison of Salaar Vs Dunki.

Dunki Vs Salaar Vs Aquaman 2: The Challenge

Aquaman 2

When the peace battle between Dunki and Salaar was announced a few months ago, it raised concerns for the DC superhero film Aquaman 2 and the Lost Kingdom, starring Jason Momoa in the lead role. The film experienced issues at the Indian box office, as expected, because to the intense competition between Dunki and Salaar.

The second movie in the Aquaman 2franchise and the final one in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), which was released last Thursday, was a flop both locally and internationally. The film was beset by criticism for its weak premise and writing, causing it to struggle to leave an impression. According to reports, its box office collection in India remained below Rs. 20 crores.

While the original Aquaman 2 film was a hit, the sequel failed to maintain the initial excitement, especially given the competition between Shah Rukh Khan’s Dunki and Prabhas’ Salaar.

When compared to its native market, the James Wan-directed Aquaman 2 experienced considerable hurdles in the Indian box office. Salaar and Dunki, on the other hand, continue to thrive at the box office, effectively engaging their respective target audiences.

On December 20, the epic Korean naval war film “Noryang: Deadly Sea,” the third in Kim Han-min’s trilogy after “The Admiral: Roaring Currents” and “Hansan: Rising Dragon,” debuted at No. 1 in Korea. With a total of $9.3 million, the film came in eighth place internationally.
