Thor Dark World, Natalie Portman, Chris Hemsworth


No surprise here. Thor: The Dark World was the top choice for moviegoers this weekend, by a mile.

The action-thriller starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins, and the second follow-up to The Avengers, slayed the competition and earned $86.1 million in its opening weekend.

The sequel to the 2011 blockbuster grossed an estimated $7.1 million in Thursday-night previews and Friday-midnight screenings, its studio reported on Friday. Thor: The Dark World debuted much stronger than Thor, which opened the first coveted weekend in May and made $65.7 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
