Weekend Estimates: Thor Strikes with Mighty Opening

May 8th, 2011

Thor couldn't quite emulate Fast Five's debut, but a very solid $66,000,000 opening weekend for the Marvel superhero movie keeps the promising early Summer season rolling along very nicely. Respectable weekends for Jumping the Broom and Something Borrowed also helped this weekend continue the winning streak over 2010.

As expected, Fast Five dropped steeply from its opening, down 62% in fact, to an estimated $32.5 million. The rest of the top 20 was fairly mediocre, with Soul Surfer the only film that fell less than 40%.

In limited release, There Be Dragons and The Beaver both failed to impress, and the top per theater average so far reported among films in limited distribution is the $6,000 or so posted by instant-cult-classic Hobo with a Shotgun.
