Mania Box Office Report: Thor Repeats

Dropping the Hammer, again

By Robert T. Trate     November 17, 2013
Source: Box Office Mojo

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

As if the Mighty Thor was'nt gonna put the smack down on some "American Pie" in the Hood wanna-be's, lol....

Man is it gonna STING over at the WB/DC studio if Thor makes more Bank than MOS......lol

 Gravity scored $500 million and $700 million is a possibility?  Impressive.  Most impressive.

I preferred Thor TDW over MOS but there is no way it will beat it's domestic BO totals.

But it sure looks like it's on its way to beat the foreign totals.

Thor: TDW up to $480 million worldwide already and still counting.  It's pretty much a lock for $600 million worldwide at this point and could climb up to $700 .  That said, Hunger Games is about to crush everything in its path unfortunately.  I wasn't a fan of the first one and have no interest in the sequels but it is gonna be huge.

Box office report? What is it? And what's it doing in mania?

Thor2-Much deserved!!! Best movie of the year for me so far! Well it's like neck and neck with Gravity. =)

Overall I think this has been the best year in blockbuster movies of all time.

 I enjoy the Box Office Report. It helps me see if the movies I like are going to get the greenlight for a sequel. I really enjoy seeing the oversees reports. Finally was able to see Thor. I really enjoyed it. Some great and fun stuff near the end. I am looking foward to Guardians now, I have never followed that line. Gravity was really good, I was sucked into the 3D.

 Finally got to see Thor: The Dark World.

Great flick! Def in my Top 3 of the Marvel Movies.

What the hell is Best Man Holiday anyhow?

It's an rom-com/drama ensemble with Terrance Howard. Who gave an interview last week where he basically blames RDJ for getting him fired from the Iron Man franchise. He claimed was him who got RDJ the job in the when in fact was Faverau who got RDJ the job. It was Howard's own on set behavior during the first film that got him fired.
