It’s not surprising, but Thor: Ragnarok repeated at the top of the box office with an estimated $56.6 million over the weekend. The film also added $76 million to its international total as well.
The film has earned $211.6 million domestically, $438.5 million internationally, and $650.1 million worldwide. That domestic total in ten days is more than the first two films’ entire domestic run. It will easily pass Doctor Strange‘s $232 million which opened the same weekend last year. It has also passed the worldwide totals of the first two films.
In second place was Daddy’s Home 2 which earned $30 million off of a $69 million budget. That’s $8.7 million less than the original film when it debuted.
In third place was another new film, Murder on the Orient Express which brought in an estimated $28.2 million. That film has a $55 million budget. At the foreign box office the film has earned $57.2 million.
In fourth place was A Bad Moms Christmas which dropped from last weekend’s second place. It added an estimated $11.5 million to its domestic total to bring it to $39.9 million.
In fifth place was Jigsaw which dropped from third. It added $3.4 million to its total to bring it to $79.1 million worldwide on a $10 million budget.
