'Thor' holds box-office top spot with $38.5MNovember 17, 2013 @ 9:33 am
NEW YORK (AP) - "Thor: The Dark World" continued its box-office reign with $38.5 million in its second week, holding off "The Best Man Holiday," according to studio estimates Sunday.
Opening nearly 15 years after the original "The Best Man," `'The Best Man Holiday" opened strongly with $30.6 million. The Universal film, which drew an overwhelmingly female and African-American audience, was an unlikely challenger for Disney's "Thor."
But Marvel's Norse god has hammered audiences around the globe. It has now made $479.8 million worldwide, already besting the original "Thor."
The box-office window will soon close for "Thor," though. Opening Friday is "Hunger Games: Catching Fire," which is expected to be one of the year's biggest debuts.
