"Thor: Love and Thunder" remains North America's No.1 movie
Marvel's "Thor: Love and Thunder", despite three new national releases, managed to stay at the No. 1 movie in North America.
Although "Thor's" ticket sales plummeted in its second weekend, dropping by 68% to $46 millions from 4,375 theaters.
However, the latest installment of Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe easily topped a trio of newcomers: Sony’s literary adaptation "Where the Crawdads Sing,"
Paramount’s animated "Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank", and the Focus Features period drama,
"Mrs. Harris goes to Paris. "Love and Thunder" is now at $232 million domestically and $497.9 million globally.
The 68% drop in sales for "Thor", the fourth superhero movie to feature Chris Hemsworth playing the Asgardian god
with abs who won't quit, is a sign that the movie isn't breaking out beyond the (albeit large) comic book fanbase.
Although "Love and Thunder," will likely end its box-office run with a nice sum,
it isn't ideal for a film this large and broad to lose so much of its audience so quickly after its opening weekend.
