Friday Box Office: THOR: THE DARK WORLD Hits $31.6 Million on Opening Day

     November 9, 2013


It wasn’t quite as mighty as it could have been, but the debut of Thor: The Dark World was still pleasing to the gods of Disney and Marvel. According to studio estimates, the sequel earned an estimated $31.6 million from 3,841 locations on Friday, including $7.1 million from Thursday night previews. That’s a 20% improvement over the launch of the first Thor in 2011 and puts Thor 2 on course for a weekend gross of $81 million. Considering that many projections had The Dark World pacing Fast & Furious 6 ($97.3 million) on its debut weekend, today’s estimate looks a bit soft. However, Disney announced on Wednesday that $80 million was its target so, mission accomplished. We’ll have full details and the top ten when you check back tomorrow.
