'Thor' soars at Friday B.O.
Paramount superhero pic takes in north of $25 mil
By Michael Sullivan
'Thor'
Paramount's "Thor" struck first Friday night with $25.7 million from 3,955 locations.
Of its engagements, 2,737 were in 3D and 214 in Imax. "Thor" grossed $3.25 million in midnight screenings Thursday from approximately 1,800 locations, and worldwide "Thor" has already cumed more than $130 million thanks to its overseas bow a week before hitting Stateside.

Universal's "Fast Five" came in second last night with $10.5 million at 3,662 locations. Pic kicked off the summer sesh early last week with a boffo $86 million weekend. While "Thor" likely won't hit those highs, it is expected to benefit from U's softening the ground for summer tentpoles.

Par's superhero pic tracked well in the weeks leading up to the Mother's Day frame. This time last year "Iron Man 2" opened to a $51.2 million Friday night fuelled by fanboy auds, and only dropped 10% from Friday to Saturday. "Thor" should behave similarly, and B.O. pundits expect it to gross north of $60 million this weekend, which would make it the third biggest Marvel franchise bow behind "Spider-man" and "Iron Man."

Warner Brothers' "Something Borrowed" took third with $4.8 million at 2,904 engagements, which was followed by Sony's "Jumping the Broom" with $4.175 million at 2,035. Fox's toon holdover "Rio" rounded out the top five with $1.96 million from 3,258 playdates.

Modestly budgeted pair "Something Borrowed" and "Jumping the Broom" tracked especially well with women. While the two shouldn't tear auds away from "Thor" or "Fast Five," they will likely earn solid mid-week figures as femme-skewing pics generally play well with women during the week.

Also opening in limited release this weekend is Summit's "The Beaver," which made $30,000 Friday night from 22 locations. Summit plans to expand its release on May 20.

Good to see it is doing well for its opening weekend. I wish it the best for next few weeks.

Hold on, wait wait wait, is the lesson here that if you make an all-ages movie about a comic book character that's true to the source material and filled with wall-to-wall action, PEOPLE WILL FREAKING WATCH IT?!?!? Shocked

I'm confused...

Isn't it time for an update on the numbers? Why yes, I believe it is.

Domestic: $66,000,000
Foreign: $176,000,000
Worldwide: $242,000,000
Production Budget: $150 million
URL: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=thor.htm

Do the math, people. All this does is go back to the point we were all making about making a fun, accessible, all-ages film that brings the action and sticks to the source material. THIS is what happens. Internationally, this badboy has already exceeded the production budget. At this rate, it's only a matter of time until it's profitable in both territories.

Gee, a fun adventure film about a manly, non-emo, non-mopey superhero can do great business, who the hell saw that coming (besides us)?

Bring on Captain America!

Just got back from Seeing THOR. No time to discuss right now due to Smallville about to come on but my neighbor who watched it on the Internets for 'free' was accurate in how he described it. One word:

A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!!!!!!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I didn't doubt anyone's word about the quality of the film to begin with. Like I said last week, I couldn't make it the 1st week but was determined to see it this week. I did. I was just giving a quick 'thumbs up' so to speak. Really enjoyed it, that's all.

It was a joke based on the fact that we have had a review thread up, and you said you took your neighbors word for it.

If I wanted to be hostile, you should know what I CAN do.

All's cool then. Smile

I read some Thor comics as a kid but not much. Not nearly as much as Superman. Not even as much as Hulk, Batman, or Spiderman. I don't claim to be an expert on Thor's Marvel mythos or even the mythology it's based on. I'm sure the film didn't exactly line up with the comics, especially the part about Dr. Donald Blake, but it was humorous the way they handled that.

Overall I'd rate it one of Marvel's better films. It was certainly better than IRON MAN 2 & I'd put it up there with the 1st Iron Man film & possibly even Spiderman 2, although I'm aware Spidey is licensed out to Sony. Wish that would change. Anyway, the wife went with me as expected but even she enjoyed it & even laughed in different parts! A definite surprise & it certainly beats that appearance of Thor on 'The Return of the Incredible Hulk'.

Can hardly wait for THE AVENGERS. One thing that pisses me off though. I stayed for the scene after the credits. Well, people started getting up as soon as it was over. That's no surprise. But for the ones such as myself waiting for that scene, the theater had the nerve to bring the lights back up & the clean-up crew were standing by, ready to go to work. This is very irritating when you & I know that the theater management is aware of these things. Just this whole 'instant' society I guess. Rolling Eyes

That's sort of justifiable given that a lot of teenagers work in theaters and 99% of teenagers are complete retards who will likely soon be laid off once the economy gets even worse and people have to compete harder for jobs.

But the same exact thing happened at the midnight premiere and that was such shit. Only the hardcore fans see the movie at midnight, most of whom know by now to stay after the credits for the Avengers reference. But they put the house lights up anyway.

I didn't pay extra close attention to the marketing but I've wondered if it was properly conveyed that this is a superhero/comic book movie from Marvel. I mean, sure, the movie is successful, no doubts there, but I can't help but think that it might've performed a little stronger (maybe an extra $10 or $15 mill in the States) had it been more closely associated with Marvel and superheroes and whatnot. I've heard a few people say they were expecting was a film along the lines of Clash of the Titans instead of being related to the Avengers (and were pleasantly surprised).

In fact, I haven't heard so much as one negative review. From your casual moviegoers to your core fans, NOBODY has said an unkind word about the movie. A dude who works at my comic shop hates ALL adaptations. TV shows, cartoons, films, they all suck equally in his view as he says no format EXCEPT comics can properly convey what the characters are all about. But even THIS guy LOVED Thor. I have to think he's about as tough an audience as anybody Branagh was facing. If this dude walked away happy, yeesh...

The movie WILL turn a profit in theaters and it'll probably clean the hell up on DVD but methinks the sequel will be what really tells the tale. I suspect it'll do even better than the original because the expectation will be set.

The good thing about this also is that THOR has only been in release 10 days & isn't far from matching its' budget domestically speaking. 10 more days & it will no doubt have surpassed it! It's also the number 1 film for the 2nd week in a row! It even beat out what I feel like was the 'much-hyped' BRIDESMAIDS, although that film did very well for its' target audience. PRIEST didn't fare as well with about 14.5 million I believe. This is supposedly based on some comic I'm not really familiar with.

But how's our good friend 'DYLAN DOES DOGS' doing now?! Behold:

Domestic: $145,406,000

So to recap: 'THOR' has almost made in 3 weeks what Singerman took 22 to earn.

Any Apologists STILL want to "wonder" why it's considered a FLOP?

And get this! Thor's production budget is basically the same as BATMAN BEGINS & we all know how fond duh apologists are of pointing out concerning Singerman 'but it made more than Begins!' Thor is obviously gonna leave 'Begins' in the dust when it's all said & done but I'm smart enough to know it ain't gonna approach TDK's numbers, but that's like a 'fluke of nature' anyway due to the circumstances. Very shortly Thor will have made back its' budget even domestically & I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't even pass 'Begins'.

The sad thing about this though is that what might be considered a '2nd-tier' character in comics films has turned out to be a smash hit! While Singerman, which was supposed to have been SUPERMAN, gets severely humbled at the box office. That's really saying something!
