411 Box Office Report: Thor: The Dark World Reigns For Second Week
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 11.17.2013

As expected, Thor: The Dark World claimed a second week on top of the box office this weekend. The Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel brought in $38.5 million to hold onto the throne, with an solid 55% drop that puts it right in line with the average drop for Marvel Studios' films. By comparison, Iron Man 3 dropped 59% and The Avengers dropped 50%. The film has now grossed $147 million domestically and $479.8 million worldwide, putting it about the worldwide grosses of the first Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger. The film had a budget of $170 million.

Opening with astounding strength was The Best Man Holiday, which finished at #2 with $30.6 million. The film, which is a sequel to 1999's The Best Man, drastically over-performed above the high teens/low twenties that the studio was projecting; it averaged $15,115 from 2,024 theaters and it received a rare A+ CinemaScore, which should translate into solid legs for the film. The movie's budget was $17 million.

Last Vegas continued to show impressive strength in its third week, rising a spot to #3 with $8.9 million and a mere 20% drop. CBS Films' ensemble comedy about a group of senior friends heading to Las Vegas has now grossed $47 million from a fairly low budget of $28 million.

Relativity's Free Birds slipped a spot to #4 in its third week with $8.3 million thanks to a good hold of its own right. Relativity's animated film was down only 25%. The film now grossed a total of $42.2 million from a budget of $55 million.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa was down three spots in its fourth week to $5 with $7.7 million. The film has now grossed $90.2 million domestically and $119.2 million worldwide from a budget of just $15 million; it's now the second-highest grossing film in the franchise behind only Jackass 3-D's $117 million domestically and $171 million worldwide.

Gravity held even in its seventh week at #6 with $6.3 million. The Sandra Bullock/George Clooney film has now grossed $240.6 million domestically and $483.9 million worldwide from a budget of $100 million; it is the #5 grossing film of the year so far domestically.

Ender's Game slipped two spots in its third week, finishing at #7 with $6.2 million. The film has now grossed $53.8 million domestically and $62.9 million worldwide from a $110 million budget.

12 Years a Slave dropped one spot in its fifth weekend, down to #8 with $4.7 million. The Fox Searchlight period drama, which stars Chiwotel Ejiofor, has a total of $24.9 million from a budget of $20 million.

Down one spot to #9 in its sixth week was Tom Hanks' Captain Phillips, which brought in $4.5 million. The fact-based drama about the Maersk Alabama hijacking in 2009 has now made $97.6 million so far domestically and $152.7 million worldwide from a budget of $55 million.

Down one spot in its second week of wide release was Richard Curtis' time travel flick About Time. The romantic dramedy, which stars Tom Hollander and Rachel McAdams, brought in $3.5 million for a solid drop of 27%. The film has grossed $11.6 million domestically and $53 million worldwide on a $12 million budget.

The weekend box office tally was $127.4 million, down a hefty 49% from last year's take of $250 million that was led by the monster opening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 with $141.1 million.

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.
