‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Eyeing $90 Million-Plus Opening Weekend

thor-ragnarok-tracking-big-weekendLooks like the God of Thunder hasn’t lost any in his third outing. In fact, Thor: Ragnarok may gain some thunder if these numbers from The Hollywood Reporter turn out to be true. Right now, the film is tracking to open somewhere between $90 million and $100 million in North America during the November 3 – 5 weekend.

The threequel, directed by New Zealander Taika Waititi stars Marvel veterans Chris Hemsworth in the title role and Mark Ruffalo as his angry green pal, Hulk.

Ragnarok will see the ultimate “Revenger” team up of Thor, Hulk, the mischievous Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) to battle the goddess of death, Hela, played by Cate Blanchett. Idris Elba and Anthony Hopkins also star.

If the predictions are correct, Ragnarok, the 17th Marvel Cinematic Universe filmwill open ahead of the first Thor ($65.7 million) and the awful Thor: The Dark World ($85.7 million). All of the MCU films have a combined gross of $12.6 billion at the global box office.

What do you think? Do these numbers seem on point or maybe a little low given the great response to the trailers and the screenings? Share your your thoughts below.

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!

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

5 Thor Stories That Should Be Used For Future Marvel Movies

Previous1 of 6

Chris Hemsworth Thor MarvelAfter those amazing Thor: Ragnarok trailers, everyone’s talking about Odinson. This looks like a fun movie, and it makes me excited for where they might take Thor in the future. After Avengers: Infinity War, Thor is fair game for Marvel Studios (and hopefully Taika Waititi again) to do whatever they want with him.

There are some amazing Thor stories in the Marvel catalog for them to take inspiration from. I think that’s pretty key at this point, for them to just take inspiration from these stories and not follow the plot 100 percent. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is just too different compared to the Marvel Comics line, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some amazing stories the movies could emulate.

So here are five Thor stories that should be used for future movies. Hit Next to find out more!
