Cool "Thor: Ragnarok" Makes #1 for 2nd Weekend

Thor: Ragnarok Delivers $121M Domestic Opening Along with Record China Debut
by Brad Brevet
November 5, 2017



Disney and Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok got the 2017 holiday movie season started in strong fashion, debuting with over $120 million as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to fill theaters.

Additionally, STX's A Bad Moms Christmas brought in over $20 million for its five-day start, but it's the road ahead that will tell the full story as it hopes to play well into the holiday season.

Overall, the top twelve delivered a combined $166 million, which is a massive improvement over last week but still falls short of the $183 million for the same weekend last year, which not only featured the $85 million debut of Doctor Strange, but openings for Trolls and Hacksaw Ridge.







With an estimated $121 million, Disney and Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok delivered the seventh largest opening for a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, topping the $117 million debut for Spider-Man: Homecoming earlier this year. On average, films in the MCU deliver 2.72x multipliers, which would put Ragnarok's domestic run over $330 million if it merely holds to the average, but we're expecting it to play a bit better thanks in large part to strong reviews and opening weekend audience reception.

Internationally, in its second weekend the film is now playing in nearly the entire international marketplace as it debuted in Germany, Russia, Mexico, China and Japan and brought in an estimated $151.4 million for an overseas gross of $306 million since opening last weekend. Overall, this pushes the film's global cume to $427 million.



Among Thor's new markets this weekend, the estimated $55.6 million opening in China is the largest ever for a November release as is the film's estimated $5.2 million debut in India.

Ragnarok signifies the 17th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its performance has now pushed the franchise over $13 billion globally and over $5 billion domestically.







Finishing in second, STX's A Bad Moms Christmas brought in an estimated $17 million over the three-day for a $21.5 million five-day domestic gross after opening on Wednesday. To no surprise, the film skewed heavily female, as women made up 82% of the opening week audience and 87% of that audience was 25 years or older.

The film scored a "B" CinemaScore compared to the "A" for the 2016 original.



Looking forward, the question will be to see how the film plays over the coming weeks and throughout the holiday season. Bad Moms played for 13 weeks following its late July debut where it brought in $23.8 million in its first three days and went on to gross over $113 million domestically with a massive 4.75x multiplier.

While we're not expecting the sequel to match that performance, the next few weekends could prove very profitable for the $28 million production.



Internationally, A Bad Moms Christmas brought in $6.67 million over the last five days, including $3 million in Australia (5% ahead of Bad Moms) and $2.4 million in the UK (21% ahead of its predecessor).

Next week the film will open in Germany on November 9.







In third, Lionsgate's Jigsaw brought in an estimated $6.7 million, dropping 59.7% in its second weekend as it's domestic cume now stands at $28.8 million after ten days in release.

Right behind Jigsaw, Lionsgate's release of Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween brought in an estimated $4.65 million as its cume now stands just shy of $43 million after 17 days in release.



Finishing in fifth position is WB's Geostorm, bringing in an estimated $3 million as its domestic cume now stands at $28.7 million after 17 days in release.

Elsewhere in the top ten, Atlas's Let there be Light expanded into 642 theaters (+269) this weekend and brought in an estimated $1.6 million, signaling only a 6% drop from last weekend. The film's cume now stands just over $4 million.







Outside the top ten, Electric Entertainment's release of Rob Reiner's LBJ brought in an estimated $1.1 million from 659 theaters for a disappointing $1,727 per theater average.

And Lionsgate's release of Amazon Studios' Last Flag Flying from director Richard Linklater delivered a soft opening in four theaters, bringing in an estimated $42,000 for a $10,500 per theater average.







In limited release, Greta Gerwig's directorial debut, Lady Bird, opened in four theaters and delivered an impressive $375,612 for a $93,903 per theater average. It's the best PTA of the year so far, topping the $84,315 opening average for The Big Sick back in June.

The film will expand into top markets this weekend ahead of a nationwide expansion over the Thanksgiving holiday.







Additionally, FilmRise's My Friend Dahmer brought in an estimated $45,000 from four locations ($11,250 PTA); Magnolia's release of Blade of the Immortal opened with $42,000 from 30 locations ($1,400 PTA); Vitagraph's Wait for Your Laugh brought in an estimated $17,600 from two locations; Submarine's Gilbert opened with $8,362 from one theater; and Parade Deck's Bad Grandmas brought in an estimated $3,410 from one location.

WB and New Line's It brought in another $1 million this weekend, pushing the film's domestic cume to $325.8 million as it now ranks as the 53rd largest domestic release of all-time, pushing it ahead of Suicide Squad.

Thor 3 Repeats While Daddy's Home 2 and Orient Express Deliver Strong Debuts
by Brad Brevet
November 12, 2017



Thor: Ragnarok delivered an expected #1 finish in its second weekend at the domestic box office, pushing the film's domestic total ahead of both the first and second Thor films after just ten days in release.

However, just as much a story are the strong openings for a batch of newcomers, both wide and and limited, as Paramount's Daddy's Home 2 and Fox's Murder on the Orient Express both delivered ahead of expectations and Fox Searchlight's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri averaged $80,000 per theater over its limited bow.

Meanwhile, A24's Lady Bird cracked the weekend top ten despite only playing in 37 theaters.







With an estimated $56.6 million this weekend, Thor: Ragnarok dropped just 54% in its second weekend, pushing the film's domestic gross over $211 million after ten days in release.

That's enough to best the full domestic gross for both the first Thor film ($181m) and Thor: The Dark World ($206.3m). In fact, Ragnarok is now the 12th highest grossing film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will soon top Doctor Strange's $232 million, which opened over the same weekend as Ragnarok last year.

In addition to its domestic performance, Ragnarok also added $76 million to its international total this weekend, pushing the film's overseas total to $438.5 million for a global cume that tops $650 million.







Placing second is Paramount's Daddy's Home 2, which received a critical drubbing to the tune of a score of 30 on Metacritic, but that didn't deter opening weekend audiences.

With an estimated $30 million, the comedy sequel brought in $8.7 million less than the first film, but given the first film debuted over the Christmas holiday and the sequel has the Thanksgiving holiday and all of December ahead of it this is a great start for the pic.

Even better, while critics weren't impressed, opening day audiences gave Daddy's Home 2 an "A-" CinemaScore, a notch better than the "B+" for the first film, which went on to gross over $150 million domestically.







Pulling into third place is Fox's Murder on the Orient Express, delivering an estimated $28.2 million from 3,341 theaters. The film received a "B" CinemaScore.

Internationally, after a strong start in the UK last weekend, Murder on the Orient Express expanded into 57 total markets this weekend where it grossed an estimated $45.7 million, pushing its overseas cume to $57.2 million.







Placing fourth is STX's A Bad Moms Christmas, which is already holding strong, dropping just 31% in its second weekend and delivering an estimated $11.5 million. This is the strongest hold of any wide release 2017 comedy as the film's domestic cume is now just shy of $40 million.

Rounding out the top five is Lionsgate's Jigsaw with an estimated $3.4 million, pushing the film's cume to $34.3 million. The film added an additional $8.6 million internationally this weekend from 73 markets where its overseas cume now totals $44.7 million for a global cume just shy of $80 million.







Other big news in the top ten is found in tenth position where A24's Lady Bird delivered an incredible $1.25 million from just 37 theaters for an impressive $33,766 per theater average.

A24 is reporting sell outs in many markets this weekend as the Greta Gerwig-directed feature will expand into top markets again this coming weekend leading into a nationwide break over Thanksgiving.







In limited release, Fox Searchlight's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri debuted in just four locations in New York and Los Angeles with an estimated $320,000 for an $80,000 per theater average. This is a great start for the pic, which holds a score of 86 on Metacritic and won the People's Choice Award at this year's Toronto International Film Festival.

Additionally, Atlas's No Greater Love brought in an estimated $21,821 from 22 locations ($992 PTA); The Orchard's Thelma opened in one theater with $12,357; and Cohen Media's re-release of Shakespeare Wallah generated an estimated $3,577, also from one theater.
