As India continues to grow as a market for Hollywood films, more and more Hollywood blockbusters have been hitting Indian screens. Avengers: Endgame has topped the list as the highest grossing Hollywood movie in India as of March 2022. It has also beaten James Cameron’s return to Pandora in the box office race.
Avatar: The Way of Water
This sequel is more of an immersive world-building experience than the first installment and introduces some new characters to keep things interesting. Jake (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) now have kids, and their internal struggles enliven the story, adding to the film’s spirituality.
Despite a 13-year hiatus, the Avatar series remains one of the highest grossing hollywood movies in India. In fact, it has outperformed its predecessor and is expected to exceed its current record of $480 million in Indian cinemas.
Spider-Man – No Way Home
In fact, it is one of the best movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is a very emotional movie that makes you think deeply about the meaning of Spider-Man. It is not perfect, but it has a lot of charm and is a good way to wrap up the Spider-Man franchise in the MCU. It is also an ibomma film that brings in many characters from the past franchises and gives them their own movie, something that has never happened before.
Fast And Furious 8
When Cipher (Charlize Theron) convinces Dom to betray his ‘family’ and join her cypher terrorism mission, things start looking bad for the crew. Even the film’s heist sequences become more implausible. The series’ heist action sequences are still fun to watch, but there are more spy elements than ever before. The screenplay by Chris Morgan cooks up a delicious gumbo of hyper-action scenes, espionage skills and propah British Gangster business.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout
In the film, IMF agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) leads a team of operatives to prevent nuclear weapon technology from reaching an offshoot of the Apostles, a bioterrorist group. They discover that the Apostles’ leader, Lane (Henry Cavill), is planning to detonate five large nuclear bombs, causing global extinction. In the course of their mission, Hunt and his team track Lane to a medical camp over the Siachen Glacier. At the camp, they discover that Lane programmed the bombs with a 15-minute countdown, meaning that any attempt to disarm one bomb without also disarming the other will trigger the rest.
Jurassic World Dominion
But in the two films since then, the franchise hasn’t quite lived up to its promise. The action hasn’t been as thrilling as it was in the first, and the reptilian special effects haven’t been quite as sublime.
That’s not to say that there aren’t moments of joy and wonder in the movie, like when Bryce Dallas Howard’s character Claire rescues a baby triceratops. But the thrill of that moment isn’t sustained, and the rest of the movie feels stale and uninspired.
The Conjuring 2
While the first Conjuring was very much a supernatural story, this sequel is more spiritual in tone and has an inescapably Christian bent. There are ghosts and demons, but more importantly there is a warped Nun figure named Valak that attacks the Warrens’ Christian faith.
The movie features some wonderful slow pans and creepy camera movements that emphasize negative space and are used to elicit a palpable sense of menace. There are also some surprisingly effective jump scares and enough false alarms to keep you on the edge of your seat.
It’s the second time Ryan Reynolds stars as the mercenary-turned-mutant, but this time around, there is a certain softness to the character. He has a romantic interest (Morena Baccarin) and fosters a strange family.
The movie begins with a rocky introduction, but it doesn’t stop it from becoming a fun ride. The story focuses on Russell, an orphan who finds a kindred spirit in Deadpool and helps him deal with his anger-management issues.
