After Doctor Strange 2, Marvel breaks through (once again) the American box office with Thor: Love and thunder.
If the global box office is still struggling to really pick up the colors, Disney’s huge Hollywood studio doesn’t seem to be doing too badly in the aftermath of the worst of the pandemic. Between a Spider-Man: There is no way to go home which became one of the biggest box office hits of all time ea Strange Doctor 2 which extended this resurrection of Marvel into theaters, the studio is a driving force in the movie business around the world.
And this isn’t the release of Marvel’s next boring flash, Thor: Love and thunderthat will contradict us, the fourth solo film of the god of thunder not too difficult to find his audience in dark rooms. Between his crazy cast (Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Russell Crowe and the rest of Hollywood …), his pop tone and Taika Waititi’s return to directing after the bright-flashy Thor: Ragnarok, Thor 4 has great potential for the room. Potential confirmed by a good start in the United States.
Box office success?
In fact, screened in 4,375 theaters, Thor 4 it is expected to raise between $ 140 and $ 143 million in revenue by the end of the weekend, or even 135 million according to the wisest estimates and 151 million for the most ambitious. If we’re at the low end of expectations that puts the film between 140 and 160 million grosses, Disney shouldn’t really have a problem repaying the $ 250 million budget (excluding promotion) invested in the book.
Also, without taking inflation into account, this is the highest score for a solo film Thorwell ahead of the first (65 million in revenues), The world of darkness (85 million) and also Ragnarok (more than 122 million). It would also be the fourth, if not the third, best start since the start of the pandemic, behind Spider-Man: There is no way to go home (260 million), Strange Doctor 2 (187 million) and maybe Jurassic world 3 (145 million).
And it goes on, en-Gorr and en-Gorr
On the MCU scale, this would be the twelfth best opening weekend for one of the 29 films in the saga, Thor 4 lying in the middle Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (over $ 146 million) e Iron Man 2 (over 128 million). A completely satisfactory national box office, favored by international receipts, given that the feature film directed by Taika Waititi was released in 90% of the markets it should cover during its run.
Waiting to be released in some countries such as France, among others, the film has already amassed $ 80 million on Friday alone, and is expected to exceed $ 150 million by the end of the weekend. Thor: Love and thunder it will therefore undoubtedly scratch the more than 300 million dollars in the worldin a few days of transmission.
To see how the film will go in the long run and the role word of mouth will play in its exploitation, Thor 4 received lukewarm from the English-speaking press. As for France, Thor: Love and thunder I am getting ready to go out this Wednesday 13th July in our dark rooms.
