The movie has managed to outperform the projections of $85 million to $100 million. Thor is right up there with there with some of Marvel’s best other installments in Guardians of The Galaxy: Volume 2 and Doctor Strange. Moreover, the movie also managed to break the record of the best October opening in various markets including South Korea, Brazil and Australia.
Thor now is expected to be launched in other foreign markets as well. It would be interesting to see whether the movie gains momentum over the next coming days. Currently competition in the super hero movie arena was minimal. However one thing that Marvel has to keep in mind that Justice League’s first installment is also expected to launch in November.
Like Thor, Justice League has also spent a lot on Marketing and promotion. Plus Justice League is a movie which will have a lot of fanfare surrounding it , and hence Marvel really needs to play it’s cards right if Avengers Infinity War is to be a huge success.
