HOLLYWOOD—Well after a lackluster month at the box-office, November kicked off in a big way with the return of Thor aka Chris Hemsworth with “Thor: Ragnarok.” The second sequel in the franchise received glowing reviews from critics which led to the film debuting to a massive $121 million during its opening weekend. I would say it’s safe to argue that “Thor: Ragnarok” is likely to stay on top at the box-office for the next 2 weeks, I don’t even think “Justice League” can overthrow the flick.
Nabbing second place was the comedy “A Bad Mom’s Christmas” with $17 million over the three-day weekend, but has since grossed over $21 million since it’s released on Wednesday. The raunchy comedy which reunites Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn fell short of the impressive debut of its predecessor which earned $24 million in July 2016.
Last week’s box-office champ, “Jigsaw” dropped to third place with only $6.7 million bringing its cumulative tally to just over $28 million in 2 weeks. Tyler Perry’s “Boo 2!: A Madea Halloween” nabbed fourth place with $4.7 million edging the comedy closer to crossing the $50 million mark at the domestic box-office before it ends its run in theaters.
Rounding out the top five was the disaster flick “Geostorm” with $3 million and it’s safe to safe that flick might be the biggest bust of 2017 so far. That movie will without a doubt not recoup its budget in any fashion. This weekend sees the released of the thriller “Murder on the Orient Express” starring Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Judi Dench and Kenneth Branagh.
