Oppenheimer’s growth has slowed, but its revenue is now much closer to reaching the 100 crore threshold in India. The movie made 7.25 crore on Sunday, the same amount it generated on Saturday, according to a report on Sacnilk.com. The movie’s current box office total is 92 crore net, and Cillian Murphy plays J.

Box office report of Barbie
Barbie, however, only got a fair amount of attention in India. “The movie is currently at 35.43 crores and took in 3.25 crore on Sunday,” according to an article on the same portal. The movie made its highest take of 7.15 crore on its first Sunday in India, where it debuted at five crore. But last Friday, it only made 1.55 crore, and on Sunday, it made between 3.25 crore.
Ryan Gosling plays Ken, and Margot Robbie plays Barbie in the movie Barbie. Greta Gerwig is responsible for the direction.
Barbenheimer’s global box office
The AP claims that Barbenheimer established itself as a continuous box office juggernaut rather than a one-weekend phenomenon. Worldwide ticket sales for the two films currently exceed $1 billion.
On Sunday, the studio figures showed that Barbie made a staggering $93 million in its second weekend. Oppenheimer retained second place with a sizable $46.2 million. Sales for the two films declined 43 and 44 percent falling short of the typical week-two declines.
Since its July 21 release, Barbie has set many box office records, including the biggest debut in 2023. Oppenheimer, a biopic directed by Christopher Nolan, had the biopic’s largest global opening.
