Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok”, which brings back one of its mightiest superheroes, Thor, on the big screen, opened at a whopping Rs. 9.91 crore in India.

The film directed by Taika Watiti collected Rs 9.91 crore (gross box office collection) including Rs. 13 lakh from ten IMAX shows held on Thursday. 45 per cent of the contribution was also marked as coming from the dubbed audience.

"It's been a smashing month of serious uniting of forces across on ground and digital activations including a pan-India figurine tour, screenings, solid digital activations, a strong PR drive and more. We hope the thrill we experienced putting together the plan is also experienced by the audiences when they go meet Thor and Hulk on the big screen," Amrita Pandey, Vice President - Studios, Disney India, said in a statement. 

"'Thor Ragnarok' is a prelude to the biggest fight of the Millennium that is up next in May 2018 with the 'Avengers - Infinity Wars - Part 1' where all these superheroes from the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) come together," she added.
