‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Projected To Have $100 Million Opening Weekend

Thor RagnarokBox Office Pro has the first numbers available for Thor: Ragnarok‘s projected November 3rd opening and they are looking good so far.

The company reports that the third film in the Thor saga is expected to hit $100 million at the box office during its opening weekend. That bodes well for the film, which has surpassed fellow fall big-budget comic book release Justice League as the most anticipated film of the season.

Should Thor: Ragnarok hit or beat this prediction, it would give this entry the highest opening weekend so far in the series. The first Thor opened to $65 million, and its sequel, Thor: The Dark World opened to $85 million.

While it is still early, these sort of numbers bodes well for the Taika Waititi-helmed film, which has had a lot of positive buzz coming off well-received trailers and commercials. The film’s major competition that weekend will presumably be A Bad Moms Christmas, currently expected to debut at $30 million.

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok“, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladictorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!

Directed by Taika Waititi, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson,  Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.

Thor: Ragnarok will be released in theaters on November 3, 2017.

5 Reasons We’re Excited For ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Thor: RagnarokGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out on home media and Spider-Man: Homecoming has been playing in theaters for a while now, so it’s time to look forward to the next Marvel movies, the first being Thor: Ragnarok.

The trailer for the film is incredible. The vibe, the action, the set-design, the soundtrack, every element of the trailer screams, “This is a different kind of Thor movie.”

And that’s exactly what we need. Thor: The Dark World was the most easily forgettable Marvel sequel, only distinguishable from the original for its use of fan-favorite villain Loki. Thor: Ragnarok looks poised to switch up the formula, seeming more like a fun intergalactic romp than a brooding space epic.

Judging from the trailer and other positive buzz, there’s plenty of cause to be excited for Thor: Ragnarok. Here are the 5 reasons why. Click next to get started!

    It’ll be more once the same old marvel movie reviews come out. Oh this movie is so great and funny even though it’s average and hollow at best. Would be hilarious though if it did make 100 million. That means IT would have outsold it
