Box Office: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Continues to Conquer With $61 Million

Disney-Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok” is set to continue its reign at the box office in its second weekend with $61.3 million at 4,080 North American locations.

Fox’s Agatha Christie adaptation “Murder on the Orient Express” will open nearly 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 third Thor movie ended a monthlong box office slump last weekend when it opened with $122.7 million, the fourth-best launch of 2017, so a decline of under 50% is well above the norm. Directed by Taika Waititi, “Thor: Ragnarok” stars Chris Hemsworth as the title character, with Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, and Jeff Goldblum.

Murder on the Orient Express” was directed by and stars Kenneth Branagh as the famed mustachioed detective Hercule Poirot. 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, set in the 1930s in Central Europe, was adapted by Michael Green and carries a $55 million budget. With fairly positive reviews from critics, it currently sits at a 59% on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Daddy’s Home 2” took in around $10.8 million on Friday, just $100,000 more than “Murder.” Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell reprise their roles as fathers co-parenting the children of Wahlberg’s character who struggle to cope when their fathers, played by Mel Gibson and John Lithgow, arrive during the holiday season. Reviews have been dismal, with a 16% Rotten Tomatoes score.

STXfilms’ “A Bad Moms Christmas” will clean up a tidy $11.8 million in its second weekend, slotting it into fourth place at the domestic box office and marking a less than 35% drop from its debut. The film stars Kathryn Hahn, Mila Kunis, and Kristen Bell as three mothers who are forced to deal with their mothers — played by Susan Sarandon, Cheryl Hinds, and Christine Baranski — when they unexpectedly show up for the holidays.

Fifth place is set to go to Lionsgate’s Halloween holdover “Jigsaw,” which will pull in $3.5 million in its third weekend.

Early awards contender “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” starring Frances McDormand and Woody Harrelson, opened with a strong $102,000 at four locations on Friday, with $290,000 projected for the weekend. The Fox film follows McDormand as a small town mother who wages war against her local police force after her daughter’s rape and murder goes uninvestigated for several months.
