It seems as if Marvel only debuts films at #1. Marvel Studios’ seventeenth film, “Thor: Ragnarok,” opened on top of the box office this weekend.
Disney’s main superhero studio has never had one of its films come up short of opening in the number one spot. Raking in an estimated $121 million in 4,080 theaters in North America this weekend, “Ragnarok” keeps the perfect streak alive. The film features Chris Hemsworth as Thor: God of Thunder and Cate Blanchett as the Goddess of Death, Hela.
One of the best-reviewed Marvel films in the brand’s almost decade long run, “Ragnarok” received a 93% score on the review site Rotten Tomatoes. The film is apparently well deserving of its $427 million global gross. Marvel Studios movies have now grossed over $5 billion domestically and $13 billion worldwide.
