'Thor: The Dark World' Holds #1 Spot; 'The Best Man Holiday' Impresses

on November 16, 2013

Disney estimates that Thor: The Dark World took in a healthy $10.5 million on Friday, and BoxOffice projects a $37.5 million sophomore frame. That represents a mildly weak 56.5% drop from last weekend. The Dark World is outpacing 2011's Thor by a healthy margin at this point in the release cycle: Thor had $119.5 million in the bank after its second weekend.

Universal estimates that The Best Man Holiday is set to take in a solid $31.1 million during its debut frame. The sequel is already close to topping the $34 million domestic cume of its 1999 predecessor. The original Best Man's total would be $54.2 million when adjusting for inflation--The Best Man Holiday should easily trump that.

Last Vegas is holding up incredibly well. The CBS Films release has positioned itself nicely among moviegoers aged 35+. It should continue to do solid business in the weeks to come. 

Elsewhere in the top 10, 12 Years A Slave fell only 27% as word of mouth continues to spread. The Fox Searchlight release still has plenty of life left in it.
