Thor: Ragnarok Rules the Box Office Its Second Week Stateside

Share

"Thor: Ragnarok" had a "hammer-like" grip on the nation's movie goers this weekend, an industry analyst said Sunday, and was expected to deal $56.6 million in tickets at the North American box offices.

Fox's Agatha Christie adaptation "Murder on the Orient Express" will open almost neck-and-neck with Paramount's comedy sequel "Daddy's Home 2", with "Murder" looking to bring in around $28.1 million from 3,341 locations and "Daddy's 2" to pull in $27.3 million from 3,575 sites.

The God of Thunder isn't ready to relinquish his box office throne yet.

Despite the drop, it was still enough to place ahead of the star-studded Murder on the Orient Express, which pulls in a three with $28.2 million (£21.4 million). The star-laden cast includes Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penelope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, "Hamilton's" Leslie Odom Jr., and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" actress Daisy Ridley.

The film has a now worldwide gross of a whopping $527.67 million dollars, with its US box office gross now at $173.2 million. With fairly positive reviews from critics, it now sits at a 59% on Rotten Tomatoes. That's a better result for Kenneth Branagh's murder mystery than the holiday comedy sequel, as "Murder" was made on a $55 million budget compared to $69 million for "Daddy's Home 2".

Paramount's Daddy's Home 2, which adds John Lithgow and Mel Gibson to the Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg formula, took second place with $US30 million ($NZ43 million). Reviews have been dismal, with a 16% Rotten Tomatoes score.
