Jared Leto, one of the most anticipated Marvel movies Morbius, recently released for Indian audiences in four languages: English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The film casts Jared as the anti-hero, as he tries to find a cure for his rare blood disease, which turns him even more into a living vampire with an uncontrollable thirst for human blood.
This isn’t the first time Jared has taken on a comic book-based role. He previously played Joker in the DCEU movie Suicide Squad, earning praise for his thrilling avatar. The film managed to collect $39.1 million in its first weekend of release in North American theaters. As for international collections, the film is worth $84 million, according to Variety. Coming to India, the film reportedly fetched around Rs 8-9 crore in its three-day opening weekend.
Box Office Collection “Morbius”
With the period drama of SS Rjamaouli RRR breaking major box office records across India, Morbius suffered a setback due to competition. The film also clashes with that of John Abraham Attack, which also recovered many screens. According to WeGotThisCovered, the film is heading for a low box office opening compared to any other Marvel live-action film in recent years.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa, the film was mounted on a budget of $75 million. Apart from Jared Leto, the film also stars Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson in prominent roles. Sony’s Morbius stars Leto as the eponymous “anti-hero,” a renowned biochemist who chooses the path of destruction by turning into a vampire.
The official synopsis for the film reads as follows:
Suffering from a rare blood disease and determined to save others suffering the same fate, Dr. Morbius makes a desperate gamble. While at first it appears to be a drastic success, the darkness within him is unleashed. Will good outweigh evil – or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious new urges?”
