Good news for Marvel Studios and fans of Thor, as Thor: Ragnarok has beat industry estimates at the box office by bringing in $121 million for the weekend.
Thor: Ragnarok was initially pegged for a $90-$100 million debut, but then following the Thursday night previews, its box office estimate was bumped up to $115 million.
Now Thor: Ragnarok having a $121 million box office weekend debut actually sees it surpass that of Spider-Man: Homecoming's $117 million.
That's quite a feat considering Thor: The Dark World only brought in around $85 million, which means obviously critics and audiences responded to the fresh comedic approach and addition of the Hulk, who hasn't been seen since The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
We can probably guess Marvel Studios won't be stopping their comedic and goofball approach to some of their movies any time soon.
Thor: Ragnarok has also received an "A" CinemaScore from moviegoers and sits at 93% at Rotten Tomatoes with now 90% of fans stating they liked it; 245 reviews are "Fresh," with only 19 "Rotten."
The $121 million for Thor: Ragnarok also gives it the seventh largest opening for a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The current box office gross for Thor: Ragnarok is: $427,005,000.
Thor: Raganarok has a November 3, 2017 release directed by Taika Waititi starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk/Banner, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Sam Neill in an unknown role.
