MTV: Box Office Report

Leave it to the "God of Thunder" to make it rain.

"Thor: The Dark World" brought in an estimated $86.1 million over the weekend, putting the Marvel sequel several "realms" away from the competition. The new "Thor" ruled much of the rest of Midgard, er, Earth over the weekend, too. "Thor: The Dark World" opened a week earlier overseas, expanding over the weekend to the tune of $94 million for a foreign market total of $241 million.
