Box 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’
Guardians 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!
