‘Thor: Ragnarok’ tops $650m WW in second weekend

Thor: Ragnarok

As we suspected Thor: Ragnarok has had a great second week at the worldwide box office. The film remains the number one movie in the world overall with takings of around $650m making it the highest grossing of the Thor franchise.

Earning $56.6m at the North American box office has taken the films domestic gross to $211.6m. Internationally it made a further $75.9m for a total of $438.5m. That puts the film ahead of the international totals of Wonder Woman ($409.2m) and Logan ($390.5m).

For those of an inquisitive nature Thor: Ragnarok is now the tenth highest grossing film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But whilst the film still has some life left in it there will be strong competition from Justice League this week and also from Star Wars: The Last Jedi going in to December.
