After recording a massive weekend at the Indian box office, the Margot Robbie starrer ‘Barbie‘ and Cillian Murphy-led ‘Oppenheimer‘, continued their successful run.

“Barbie,” based on the Mattel doll, recorded 25.90% occupancy in theatres on Tuesday, helping it rake in an estimated Rs 2.30 crore. The film’s 5-day total now stands at an estimated Rs 20.95 crore in India.

Meanwhile, the Christopher Nolan-directed biographical film based on the story of J.

Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb, performed well and kept the cash counters ringing. The film saw a bigger drop in occupancy, recording just over 21%, but still managed to double the collections of Barbie, earning an estimated Rs 6.25 crore.
The film’s 5 day total collection now stands at an estimated Rs 55.75 crore nett in India.

On the international front, Greta Gerwig, made history as she became the first female director to have $170 million opening at the box office. Nolan too helped boost box office business. Movie theatres were reported to be more crowded than any post-pandemic release. According to trade experts, one of the most important triumphs in the moviegoing monsoon of “Barbenheimer” was originality. Both films were neither sequels nor reboots, thus helping push the box office to highs not seen in years.
