‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Scores $28 Million 3-Day Total Overseas

Thor: Ragnarok is looking to be a breakout hit overseas, as it's already made $28 million going into this weekend before expanding even further.

Thor: Ragnarok has made $28 million over its first three days overseas, which is ahead of last November’s Doctor Strange at the same point in its release cycle.

Variety reports that Thor: Ragnarok‘s current box office total is $28M from the 28 different countries where the movie has been released. That’s approximately 52% of the international marketplace that the movie will open in, so that’s an excellent start. The movie’s five biggest markets thus far are the United Kingdom ($6.7M), South Korea ($3.8M), France ($3M), Australia ($2M), and Brazil ($1.6M).

The Taika Waititi-directed movie will open this weekend in a number of markets, including Spain, Iceland, Norway, South Africa, Sweden, Turkey, and Vietnam. Current estimates suggest that the movie will end this weekend with a haul between $85M and $100M, which would make for a great start for this trilogy-capper and would definitely leave the possibility of a Thor 4 on the table.

Thor: Ragnarok collides on November 3, 2017, with a cast that includes Chris Hemsworth as Thor Odinson, Mark Ruffalo as Doctor Bruce Banner (The Hulk), Tesssa Thompson as Valkyrie, Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin Borson, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Stephen Strange, Karl Urban as Skurge, Jeff Goldblum as En Dwi Gast (The Grandmaster), Tom Hiddleston as Loki Laufeyson, Cate Blanchett as Hela, and Clancy Brown as Surtur.
