Superhero flicks continue to be strong at the box office. ‘Thor: The Dark World’ dominated the weekend as it opened domestically with $86M.
The Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman-starring film earned $109.4 million when it opened internationally last weekend and $94 million internationally this weekend. The Marvel superhero sequel opened domestically at No. 1.
Executive vice president of distribution at Walt Disney Studios Dave Hollis said of the record: “It’s an extraordinary thing. These guys at Marvel have been some of the most consistent when it comes to making movies and creating big events that drive a ton of people to the movie theater. They overdelivered on expectations.”
While the $100 million weekend estimates wasn’t reached, it is amazing that in some theaters, “Thor: The Dark World” brought in $7.1 million in Thursday night alone.
“Thor: The Dark World” has another weekend left to dominate the box office, until “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is released on November 22, which is predicted to take the No. 1 spot.
