Thor: The Dark World Hits $480 Million Worldwide

While the big story at the weekend box office was the success of Malcolm Lee’s ensemble comedy sequel The Best Man Holiday, released by Universal Pictures, it wasn’t able to dethrone last week’s #1 movie, Thor: The Dark World, starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins and Christopher Eccleston.

The hit superhero sequel dropped 55% to remain on top with $38.4 million, its domestic total of $147 million already at 81% of the total gross of the original Thor after just ten days.

Internationally, the movie added another $52.5 million so its international gross of $333 million is still surpassing domestic by 2:1. With a worldwide gross currently at $480 million, it’s already surpassed the amount made globally by its predecessor.
