Weekend Box-Office: THOR - LOVE AND THUNDER Hammers $143 Million Debut

Weekend Box Office Thor Love And Thunder

The new Disney/Marvel movie "Thor: Love and Thunder" opened in theaters and predictably dominated the weekend box-office, but it didn't break any records for the MCU.

Read more about the weekend box-office after the jump.

"Thor: Love and Thunder" opened with $143 million from 4,375 theaters. This is the 30th opening weekend of all time and the 12th opening weekend among Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. The film also raked in an additional $159 million overseas. With a total of $302 million worldwide, it's a solid debut for the Marvel movie, but it will have to overcome some not-so-great word-of-mouth ("B+" CinemaScore). For example, "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" opened with a massive $187 million and received a "B+" CinemaScore, which is pretty bad by Marvel standards, and ended up falling short of the $1 billion mark.

"Thor: Love and Thunder" also cost $250 million to produce, so it would need around $500 million to break even. It's a solid debut, sure, but its sophomore weekend will reveal a lot about the future of this movie. The critical reception was also mixed (68% on Rotten Tomatoes).

Last week's #1 movie, "Minions: The Rise of Gru", fell to second place with $45.5 million, dropping a steep 57%. The film has grossed a total of $210 million domestically and another $189.8 million overseas. The worldwide total now sits at $399.8 million after 9 days.

"Top Gun: Maverick" is still flying high with $15.4 million, dropping a soft 40% from last weekend. With $597.4 million domestically, $586.2 million overseas, and $1.18 billion worldwide, the film is already the highest-grossing film of 2022, despite debuting with a lower opening weekend than "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness", "The Batman" and "Jurassic World: Dominion".

The biopic "Elvis" finished in fourth place with $11 million (-40%). The film's domestic total has now reached $91.1 million, while its overseas tally now sits at $64 million. That's a global tally of $155.1 million against an $85 million budget.

The Top 5 is rounded out by "Jurassic World Dominion" with $8.4 million (-48.6%). The final installment in the "Jurassic World" series has raked in a total of $350.3 million in North America, and $526.1 million from overseas markets. Worldwide total is now at $876.4 million.
