Down At The Box Office: Marvel Proves They Can Do Great Sequels When ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Scores No.1

Down at the box Office Banner

Judging by the sheer amount of money it raked in Thor: The Dark World was the top choice for moviegoers this weekend.

No Surprise here.

And here is my reaction…

And it was (in my opinion) WAY better than Iron Man 3; so that’s a plus. So why not put some unnecessary Tom in here? Celebration Dance!

The action-thriller starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins, and the second follow-up to The Avengers, slayed the competition and earned $86.1 million in its opening weekend.


The sequel to the 2011 blockbuster grossed an estimated $7.1 million in Thursday-night previews and Friday-midnight screenings, its studio reported on Friday. Thor: The Dark World debuted much stronger than Thor, which opened the first coveted weekend in May and made $65.7 million, according to Box Office Mojo.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa took the very distant No.2 spot, earning 11.3 million.

The animated kid-friendly flick, Free Birds, took home $11.2 million and landed at No.3 and Las Vegas in No. 4.

The No.1 movie last weekend, the star-studded sci-fi ensemble Ender’s Game, rounded out the top 5, taking home $10.25 million.
