“Thor: The Dark World” opened in the US this weekend with a smashing $86.1 million in ticket sales.
The second outing starring Chris Hemsworth soundly beat last week’s top movies. Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa finished in second place with $11.3 million from Friday through Sunday, according to box office results.
The Dark World also made $94 million in international markets, where the movie opened a little earlier, playing on October 30. IMAX showings made up another $11 million overall. The combined global sales through Sunday reached $327 million.
The sequel opened stronger than the original movie, which debuted with $65.7 million in 2011. “It’s a great start,” said Dave Hollis, executive vice president of distribution for Walt Disney Studios, adding that Disney would have considered “anything north of $80 million to be a good result.”
Last week’s number one movie, sci-fi thriller “Ender’s Game,” dropped to fifth place, taking in $10.3 million. A rather steep drop-off of 62 percent in box office sales.
