This was a weird situation where a character and actor who barely merited mention in the first film’s ad campaign aside from being the token villain now counted as an “added value element” for general audiences this time around.
That’s one reason that the film played 38% female. The other reason, aside from the fact that females like action fantasies too, is that the film has four major and varied female characters versus the usual Smurfette Syndrome that affects male-centric genre entries. If anything, the Thor franchise thrives on the female gaze, with all manner of eye candy in the form of Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and/or Anthony Hopkins.
The film earned $5.3 million in IMAX despite splitting the bill with Ender’s Game and earned $11m in IMAX worldwide. If it plays like a quick-kill Marvel film, we’re looking at around 2.4x weekend-to-final multiplier (Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, and the The Incredible Hulk), which would give it around $204 million, although I can’t imagine such a collapse with a healthy weekend like this. If it has mid-level Marvel legs, expect a 2.7x multiplier (Thor, Captain America) and a domestic final of $232m. If by some fluke, or perhaps thanks to a Thanksgiving bump, next weekend being barren, or its chance at being the kid-friendly consensus choice over the next few weeks, it ends up being weirdly leggy, expect around a 3.0x multiplier (Iron Man, The Avengers), for a $258m domestic total.
Obviously that’s a lot of speculative math based on one weekend, but you can do that when you have remarkably consistent figures like the eight-film Marvel universe. It’s also this consistency that demands that we refrain from screaming “disappointment” of “under-performance” because the film probably won’t clear $90 million over its Fri-Sun weekend. It may do so by the end of Monday thanks to the holiday, Skyfall made $11m on Veteran’s Day last year, but I digress. Sequels like X2, The Bourne Supremacy, or obviously The Dark Knight that open far higher than their predecessors are not as common as we’d like to think, and I’d argue they are rarer still as movie-going becomes a more front-loaded activity.
Thor: The Dark World came in at $170m versus Thor‘s $150m budget, meaning that it doesn’t have to do that much better than the first film to make the same amount of profit. And since it’s probably going to clear $300m worldwide this weekend, I’m sure Disney and Marvel aren’t too concerned that Thor: The Dark World didn’t break out like Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. I’m far less “disappointed” by the notion that Thor: The Dark World won’t clear $100 million than happy at the idea that the tracking was merely mostly accurate (tracking can’t predict frontloading). It’s more fun when there are happy surprises. Anyway, with $327m worldwide after about 12 days of international play, Thor: The Dark World is a solid hit and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
The Book Thief debuted on four screens this weekend and grossed an estimated $108,000 on its debut weekend for a solid $27,000 per-screen. It’s a fine debut, but the film’s long term domestic future is still an open question, since it faces an uphill battle in a crowded Oscar season. Of course, the film opens everywhere else in the world in early January of 2014, so it’s pretty clear that Fox only opened it in America this early to take a shot at Oscar glory. The Armstrong Lie, Alex Gibney’s documentary about, well, Lance Armstrong’s big lies, debuted on five screens to just $30,904, for a weak $6,181 per-screen average.
In holdover news, Gravity crossed the $230 million mark today, earning another $8.4m for the weekend (-32%) and a $231m total as it starts to bleed screens and weep for those IMAX screens it may never get back. Focus Features expanded Matthew McConaughy’s Dallas Buyer’s Club into 35 theaters and earned $629k, or $17,992 per-screen, for their troubles. The cume is now $984k. Universal expanded About Time to 1,200 screens and earned $5.1 million for their troubles. Richard Curtis’s time-travel romantic drama has earned $6m domestic but over $50m worldwide.
Twelve Years A Slave expanded to over 1,100 screens and earned $6.6m weekend for a new total of $17.3m. Captain Phillips is holding tough too, crossing $90m today with a $5.8m frame. If it doesn’t cross $100m next weekend, it will very soon after. Ender’s Game is now pretty much begging for overseas grosses, as it fell pretty hard, taking in around $10.25m (-62%), giving the film a $44m cume and offering little hope for a sequel. Domestically, it’s playing almost identical to After Earth, which ended with $60m. Last Vegas held up well as expected, earning an estimated $11m in its second weekend (-30%) and giving the $28m comedy a $33m domestic cume.
