‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Brings the Thunder Overseas with $85-100 Million Debut


Who says the Marvel Cinematic Universe is running out of steam?

Thor: Ragnarok, the third movie in the Thor franchise, has the potential to rake in nearly $100 million at the overseas box office.

From Deadline

The overseas opening on the third pic in the god of thunder’s franchise is eyed at a range of $85M-$100M, per industry sources. Some see anticipation so high that reaching above $100M is possible, but as ever tracking is not as comprehensive internationally and so a clearer picture begins to emerge once the first markets come online.

The film opens in the UK today, as well as France, Italy, Spain, Korea, Australia and Brazil. Next week Thor will smash his way into the US and Asian markets.

Third time’s the charm?

Thor Ragnarok has stupendous critical acclaim, currently sitting at a 98% “fresh” rating on movie review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes. That’s a far cry from the previous installment, Thor: The Dark World, which was actually Marvel’s worst reviewed movie at 66%. To date, Thor: Ragnarok has an even higher score than the original Iron Man (94%) and the excellent Spider-Man: Homecoming (92%.)

Thor: Ragnarok opens in the US on November 3, 2017 and is currently tracking at a $100 million opening.
