What a weekend. Thor: Ragnarok managed to surpass both its predecessors domestic opening in just ten days. As the God of Thunder rolled into his second weekend in the U.S., the latest big openers, Daddy’s Home 2 and Murder on the Orient Express, were not able to near Marvel Studios’ latest film. Ragnarok saw a very moderate drop of 54% to a total gross of $56.6 million over the weekend. This puts him comfortably at $211 million, which is already more than Thor‘s $181 million and Thor: The Dark World‘s $206.3 million. As such, it is now the 12th highest grossing film of the MCU and will most likely pass Doctor Strange which opened at the same time last year.
That is not all, as the film also added another $76 million to its international Box Office, which means that the film has now also topped $650 million with an overseas gross of $438.5 million. Now, the film has also joined the top ten for 2017, which means that Walt Disney has four films in the top spots. It is still tracking 12% ahead of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in the international markets, as well as being 21% ahead of Doctor Strange. Internationally, the film has now both passed its predecessors and it will be interesting to see if it will be able to pass Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s $880 million.
Do you think that Ragnarok has a chance at passing $900 million?
