Thus, the film gains a total cume of $59.3 million. In the meantime, "Thor" fails to maintain its power at box office. After ruling the chart for two consecutive weeks, the PG-13 superhero film drops to the third place by gaining $15.5 million, and reaching $145.4 domestically after three weeks.
"Fast Five" drops a slot to number four. The action film, which has Vin Diesel reprise his role as Dom Toretto, grosses $10.6 million on its fourth weekend. Trailing behind the car racing-themed movie is animated film "Rio", which secures the fifth rank by obtaining $4.7 million.
