Box Office: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Tops $200M Domestic And $650M Worldwide


Thor: Ragnarok earned $56.6 million in its second weekend of domestic release, bringing its ten-day domestic total to $211.6m in North America alone. That puts Thor 3 ahead of The Incredible Hulk ($132m), Captain America: The First Avenger ($176m), Ant-Man ($180m), Thor ($181m) and Thor: The Dark World ($206m). None of this accounts for inflation, but that may not matter too much in the end.


That 54% second-weekend drop is right in the healthier realm of “normal” for the MCU. It’s bigger than Doctor Stranger (-49%). But it’s smaller than Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (-55%), Thor: The Dark World (-57%), Ant-Man (-56%) and Spider-Man: Homecoming (-62%). Yeah, that second Friday being Veteran’s Day helped, but the surprising strength of both wide newbies makes this hold and this total, especially when coupled with a $122m opening weekend, squarely “very good.”


Unless the Chris Hemsworth/Tessa Thompson/Mark Ruffalo/Cate Blanchett/Tom Hiddleston/Jeff Goldblum action fantasy drops dead on Thursday night, we’re looking at a domestic total of around $295m (if it plays like Thor 2 after its second weekend) to $327m (if it plays like Guardians 2 after day ten).
