Thor: Ragnarok Editor Says Film Didn't Use That Much Comedic Improvisation

Tuesday, 07 Nov, 2017

Thor: Ragnarok box office numbers soar toward $121 million. It expanded to most other overseas territories this weekend. This puts Marvel's total domestic box office take - spanning over 17 movies - at $5 billion.

The film recorded the fourth-highest opening weekend box office collections this year.

Marvel strikes again with another hot hit.

Thor: Ragnarok might be the most colorful and most comedic entry in the Asgardian God of Thunder's (Chris Hemsworth) film trilogy, but it seems like Taika Waititi's superhero space buddy movie had a lot less comedic improvisation than his team was used to.

Thor: Ragnarok stands behind Beauty and the Beast ($174.8 million), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($146.5 million) and It ($123.4 million). It is impressive just how this threequel compares to other Marvel films in a variety of ways, including its rating, preview numbers, and other high-praising facts. Here at Comicbook.com we have our own database for calculating fan opinion and response to the latest comic book movies, and we can now officially report that Thor: Ragnarok has debut at no. 6 in our user composite rankings, on its opening day in theaters! It fell just short for the highest grossing for a preview, just below Spider-Man Homecoming ($15.4 million). Its current box office sits at around $164 million without worldwide release.

These include the-first week collections from markets where Thor 3 was released a week before the United States, and $151.4 million from numerous other worldwide markets where Ragnarok released along with the USA premiere. It features Chris Hemsworth as the titular Thor, Cate Blanchett and Hela, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk/ Bruce Banner, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie.
