'Thor 2' Stays at No. 1 on Box Office, 'Best Man Holiday' Opens Strong With $30M


'Thor: The Dark World' holds off 'The Best Man' sequel from taking the first position as the superhero movie is expected to finish its second domestic weekend with $38.4 million.

"Thor: The Dark World" wins the race to No. 1 on the second weekend box office. The Alan Taylor-directed flick holds firmly the first spot for two weeks in a row with an estimated $38.4 million (55% down) domestically. It pushes its total cume in North America to $147 million so far.

The movie added $52.5 million internationally, moving its pay to $332.8 million internationally and $479.8 million worldwide. After only two weeks in the U.S. and three weeks in foreign market, it's already surpassed the global $449 million haul posted by the first "Thor" film.

"Thor 2" domination is followed by "The Best Man Holiday". The new release made a strong bow with approximately $30.5 million, earning the second position at the movie chart. Boosted with a rare "A+" from CinemaScore, it attracted female audience (75%) and African-American (87%).

A sequel to 1999's "The Best Man", the $17M budgeted film starring the original cast including Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut and Terrence Howard scores the fifth-largest opening ever for an R-rated romantic-comedy. The first film debuting with $9M helped usher in the era of aspirational African-American comedies.

Comedies "Last Vegas" and "Free Birds" occupy the third and fourth positions, trading their last week places with approximately $8.8 million and $8.3 million respectively. Rounding up the top 5 is another funny pic "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" which adds an estimated $7.6 million.

"Gravity" sits at the sixth spot with an additional $6.28M. Overseas, the George Clooney and Sandra Bullock epic outer-space film took in $18.5 million pushing its international cume to $274.3 million and its worldwide total to $515 million with $240.6 million from domestic market.
