“Thor: The Dark World,” earned $86.1 million and dominated the weekend box office as it opened domestically, at No. 1.
The Marvel superhero sequel earned $109.4 million when it opened internationally last weekend and $94 million internationally this weekend.
“It’s an extraordinary thing,” said Dave Hollis, executive vice president of distribution at Walt Disney Studios. “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.”
In limited theaters Thursday evening, “Thor: The Dark World” brought in $7.1 million overnight.
“Thor: The Dark World” marks a record for a Disney November opening, topping the $70.5 million “The Incredibles” earned in 2004.
“Once ‘Thor’ opened, it presented a pretty healthy competitor to all of the movies in the marketplace,” Dergarabedian said. “We’re starting this process of the holiday movie season, which dollar for dollar, is just as important as the summer movie season. In a seven- to eight-week period, we are talking about close to 20 percent of the total-year box office.”
