Box Office: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Rules Worldwide, Tops $650 Million Mark

Disney-Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok” has topped the $650 million milestone in worldwide grosses in less than three weeks.

The weekend saw the third Thor movie dominate the worldwide moviegoing business for a second consecutive weekend. It hit $75.9 million internationally to total $438.5 million with a take of $56.6 million domestically for a total of $211.6 million.

Globally, “Thor: Ragnarok” has already topped the lifetime totals of both 2011’s “Thor” ($449 million) and 2013’s “Thor: The Dark World” ($644 million). The international total has also eclipsed the earlier 2017 releases of Fox’s “Logan” at $391 million and Warner’ Bros.’ “Wonder Woman” at $409 million, to place it as the ninth biggest release of 2017 internationally.

Disney said Sunday that “Thor: Ragnarok” is tracking 12% ahead of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and +21% ahead of “Doctor Strange” at the same point of its release.

“Thor: Ragnarok” also held well in many markets in its third weekend, including a 32% decline in the UK, 38% in Germany, 41% in Australia, 43% in Spain and 44% in Korea. Overall, the drop-off was 45% across Europe and 51% in Latin America.

The movie remained in the top spot in China with $21.7 million, down 60%. The decline is smaller for China than the recent second weekends of “War for the Planet of the Apes” (-70%), “Spider-Man Homecoming” (-79%) and “Kingsman: The Golden Circle.”

China is the top international market for “Thor: Ragnarok” with $95.2 million, followed by the U.K. with $34.1 million, South Korea with $31 million, Brazil with $24.4 million and Australia with $20 million.

Fox’s “Murder on the Orient Express” pulled in $45.8 million in 25,903 international screens, lifting its overseas total to $57.2 million. The detective drama finished second in China with $19.1 million.

“Paddington 2” debuted with $10.9 million in the U.K. through Studiocanal, which fully financed the movie. The sequel is scheduled to be released Jan. 12 in the U.S. through the troubled Weinstein Company.

“Jigsaw” grossed $8.6 million from 74 markets to lift its international total past $44 million. STXfilms’ “A Bad Moms” Christmas” took in $8.5 million in 25 markets to give the comedy an international total of $18 million.

Disney-Pixar’s “Coco” grossed $8.4 million in Mexico to push its three-week total in that market past $41 millon. “Coco” will launch Nov. 22 in the U.S.
