Disney’s “Thor: Ragnarok” muscled its way to the top of the Japanese box office in its opening frame. A total of three films bowed in the top ten for the three-day holiday weekend, which started with Culture Day on Nov. 3.

The third entry in the “Thor” series opened on that day and pulled in $2.0 million for Saturday and Sunday, a 23% improvement over the previous “Thor” entry, “The Dark World.” In its first three days, “Ragnarok” ran its cumulative total to $3.5 million on 259,000 admissions. It is expected to end its first run around $15 million mark.
