The movie Thor: Ragnarok has Hulk-smashed its way to US box office last week; recording the fourth-largest debut of a movie for 2017.
In just three days, this third installment of the Thor saga has raised more than $ 121 million in American theaters. Only three films managed to do better this year during their first US box-office weekend: Beauty and the Beast ($ 174M), Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 ($ 146 million) and It ($ 123 million).
It also crushes the openings of 2011’s Thor ($65.7 million) and 2013’s Thor: The Dark World ($85.7 million), and edges out the most recent installment of the Marvel cinematic universe, Spider-Man: Homecoming ($117 million).
Released in several countries at the same time, the new Thor has already garnered $427 million in international box office revenue.
Thor: Ragnarok is the third installment in the Thor franchise and marks the return of two of the most powerful superheroes in Marvel Universe – Thor and Hulk.
The duo was notably absent in the last big Marvel film, Captain America: Civil War, which otherwise had the presence of most Marvel superheroes and also introduced a few new ones like Spider-Man and Black Panther.
