Thor 2 Tracking For $75 Million Opening



Various Hollywood trade sites are reporting that Thor 2 is tracking for a $75 million opening.

That number is better than the 2011 debut for Thor, which saw $65.7 million.

Bear in mind the number is just an estimate - namely from rival studios - and as we saw with World War Z could be way off.

For a comparison to other movie sequel opening weekends:

X-Men 2 opened to $85 million in 2003

Spider-Man 2 opened to $115 million in 2004

Superman Returns opened to $76 million in 2006

The Dark Knight opened to $158 million in 2008

Incredible Hulk opened to $55 million in 2008

Iron Man 2 opened with $128 million back in 2010

This year's movies:

Iron Man 3 - $174 million

Man of Steel - $117 million

World War Z - $66 million

Pacific Rim - $37 million

The Wolverine - $53 million

Thor 2: The Dark World hammers into theaters November 8th, 2013 directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Idris Elba as Heimidall, Zachary Levi as Fandral and Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Christopher Eccleston as Malekith the Accursed, Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Kurse.
