‘Thor: The Dark World’ Soars Past $500 Million Worldwide

With two weeks of domestic playtime (and three internationally) already under its belt, Disney-Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” has crossed $500 million at the worldwide box office, marking the third film for the Mouse, including “Iron Man 3” and “Monsters University,” to have reached that milestone this year.

Overseas, “The Dark World” has amassed $352.2 million through Wednesday, with $152 million Stateside, for a global cume of $504.2 million.

The “Thor” sequel’s worldwide tally already has eclipsed the original’s $449 million global cume earned in 2011.

So far, the top overseas market is China, which has contributed $46.1 million, followed by Russia, with $33.6  million, and the U.K., Brazil and Mexico, all of which have amassed more than $20 million each locally.

There is still room for the film to grow, though “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” launches worldwide in major territories starting today. “Catching Fire” is expected to gross more than $300 million globally this weekend, with domestic projections tracking at north of $160 million, at least.
