Disney reports that Thor: The Dark World earned another $2.004 million on Wednesday, declining 27 percent from Tuesday and off 44 percent from the same day last week. The Marvel sequel has amassed a strong $152 million domestically through 13 days of release, 19 percent ahead of the pace of the original Thor and 15 percent behind last November's Skyfall. With The Hunger Games: Catching Fire poised for a blockbuster opening this weekend, The Dark World is expected to encounter a more significant drop than last weekend.
The Best Man Holiday grabbed $1.66 million yesterday for a 26 percent decline from Tuesday. The sleeper hit comedy-drama has tallied $36.45 million in its first six days, just 11 percent behind the pace of Think Like a Man. Serving as counter-programming this weekend could do it some favors, although some of its core female audience will likely be lost.
CBS Films' Last Vegas continues to exhibit strong legs. The comedy eased 25 percent from Wednesday of last week to $0.74 million yesterday. The film's domestic cume is now $48.9 million as it rides positive word of mouth into the holiday season.
Meanwhile, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa inched closer to the $100 million domestic benchmark. Johnny Knoxville's spin-off took in $0.497 million on Wednesday for a week-to-week drop of 28 percent. The flick continues to outperform expectations with a current haul of $91.6 million.
