BOX OFFICE: THOR: THE DARK WORLD Already Outperforming THOR In Overseas Rollout
The Avengers effect is clearly working for Thor: The Dark World as well as it did for this summer's Iron Man 3, as early numbers for the sequel's international opening have shown that it is so far outperforming 2011's THOR. Hit the jump for further details!
Deadline has exclusively revealed that Thor: The Dark World (which opened yesterday in just a small handful of international territories like the UK and France) took a total of $8.2 million, a number which currently puts it well ahead of its predecessor. It will roll out across counties like Australia, Germany, Spain, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Russia, Mexico and Brazil, before being released in North America on November 8th. Disney and Marvel apparently see what they are calling "tremendous room for growth" at the box office from Thor's $450M worldwide, with one exec enthusiastically telling the site that, "All signs indicate we’ll have a much higher result. I can’t put a number on it, but by the time we report domestic numbers on November 10th, we should be in really great shape." How much do you guys think it will earn?
Marvel’s "Thor: The Dark World" continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s "Thor" and "Marvel’s The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
