New Thor Movie Continues To Dominate The Box Office
Thor: Ragnarok is still on top in US and Canadian theaters. Box office estimates supplied by Entertainment Weekly for the November 10-12 weekend show that Ragnarok is poised to make a $ 56.6 million during its second weekend, to hold to No. 1 by a wide margin.
That’s down 54 percent compared to its opening-weekend haul of $ 121 million, but a dropoff is expected. With this weekend’s figures accounted for, Ragnarok has now made $ 211.6 million in the US alone after just 10 days. Internationally, Ragnarok has now made $ 438.5 million after adding $ 75.9 million this weekend.
Ragnarok was praised by critics and fans, picking up a very strong A CinemaScore rating that surely helped the movie perform well in its second weekend.
Rounding out the top five films at US and Canadian theaters this weekend were Daddy’s Home 2 ($ 30 million), Murder on the Orient Express ($ 28.2 million), A Bad Moms Christmas ($ 11.5 million), and Jigsaw ($ 3.4 million).
Also of note is the new film Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri, a dark comedy by In Bruges director Martin McDonagh. The film had a limited release this weekend, bringing in $ 320,000 from only four locations, for an average per-theater take of $ 80,000. The movie stars Frances McDormand as a mother who takes matters into her own hands after local police can’t make progress in finding her daughter’s murderer.
