‘Thor’ Holds Strong on Tuesday with $5.4 Million

on May 11, 2011 by Daniel Garris

Paramount's Thor held up nicely on Tuesday with $5.41 million. The big-budget adaptation of the Marvel comic book was unchanged from Monday. The daily hold for Thor was very similar to last week's 1 percent daily decline of Fast Five on its first Tuesday. Thor continues to run line with pre-release expectations with a five-day gross of $76.54 million and is set to surpass the $80 million mark today. Currently Thor is running 16 percent ahead of the pace of 2008's The Incredible Hulk. With the aid of higher priced 3D grosses and the lack of a blockbuster level release on this weekend's schedule, Thor should be able to hold up significantly better in its second weekend than Fast Five did last weekend.

Fast Five grossed $2.69 million to remain in second place. Universal's blockbuster sequel was up 7 percent from Monday, but still down a sizable 56 percent from last Tuesday. Fast Five has grossed $144.998 million through twelve days of release, making it the highest grossing domestic release of 2011 thus far. The film is set to zoom past the $150 million mark on Friday and should be able to hold up significantly better this coming weekend than it did this past weekend. Fast Five is currently running 20 percent ahead of the pace of 2009's Fast & Furious.

Warner's Something Borrowed was up a healthy 21 percent over Monday to hold steady in third with $1.35 million. Romantic comedies typically hold up well on their first Tuesday and Something Borrowed was clearly no exception. Something Borrowed has grossed $16.41 million in five days, as it continues to run on the high end of pre-release expectations. The film is currently running 2 percent behind the pace of 2008's Made of Honor. Something Borrowed will hope to hold up well against Universal's Bridesmaids this weekend.

Jumping the Broom grossed $0.95 million to continue to claim fourth. However, the break-out comedy from Sony was down 13 percent from Monday, which represented the day's poorest daily hold among wide releases. With the film's performance having been inflated by Mother's Day this past weekend, its grosses have come back down to Earth a bit during the midweek thus far. With that said, Jumping the Broom has already grossed $17.26 million in five days and could regain momentum over the weekend thanks to good word of mouth.
