Did The Best Man Holiday even stand a chance? It was a win for Universal, who was the only studio daring enough to put out a new release between Thor: The Dark World and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Yet, if you look at the box office numbers, The Best Man Holiday almost doubled its budget in one weekend. Wouldn't that make it the true winner? Regardless, Thor dropped his hammer again and took home the box office by at least 8 million dollars. 


In its second weekend, Thor added $38.5 million for a 10-day total of $147 million. That's down 55 percent from opening, which is steeper than the first Thor's decline (47 percent), but a slight improvement over Iron Man 3 (58 percent). More importantly, that drop isn't far off fromSkyfall (53 percent), which opened on the same weekend last year. If Thor can generally keep pace with the Bond movie, a total north of $250 million is within reach”. Ray Subers
