“Thor: Ragnarok” thunders to $107.6M at int'l Box Office

Disney-Marvel's “Thor: Ragnarok” has topped the international box office with $107.6 million in 52% of overseas markets, a week ahead of its US release.

The UK is the top market with $15.8 million, 27% ahead of “Doctor Strange”. It's the biggest October opening ever for a movie in the UK except for James Bond titles. In many markets, “Thor: Ragnarok” posted the best October opening weekend ever.

Markets which will open next weekend include Germany, Russia, China, Japan and Mexico, along with the US — where it should top the early November box office with as much as $125 million in its opening weekend, early projections have shown.

“Thor: Ragnarok” is directed by Taika Waititi from a screenplay by Eric Pearson and the writing team of Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost. It stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, and Anthony Hopkins.

Disney said Sunday that it's crossed the $4 billion box office threshold globally for 2017, making it  the only studio to have achieved this threshold for the last five successive years. The US domestic box office for 2017 stands at $1.4 billion, with international box office at $2.7 billion.
