‘Thor’ grossed a $3.3 million in Thursday midnight runs, giving the 3D pic a great shot at earning north of $60 million for the weekend, and even $70 million.
Paramount and Marvel Studios’ summer tentpole played in approximately 1,800 locations.
Today, the movie moves into a total of 3,955 theaters, including a major Imax assault.
Universal’s Fast Five grossed $3.7 million in midnight runs on its way to grossing $86 million for the weekend last week.
Fast Five had the advantage of being part of a franchise, while Thor is an unproven property on the bigscreen.
Thor was directed by Kenneth Branagh. Thor stars Chris Hemsworth as the Mighty Thor.
Other stars included in the film are Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgard, Kat Dennings, Idris Elba and Rene Russo.
