Thor: Ragnarok is tracking to open at a stunning $90 million during its North American debut over the Nov. 3-5 weekend, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Chris Hemsworth returns as Thor, while Mark Ruffalo appears as the Hulk. Marvel Studios and Disney produced the threequel, and it was directed by New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi.
Thor: Ragnarok sees the god partner with his brother, Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston) and the Hulk to fight Hela, the goddess of death (played by Cate Blanchett), reports The Hollywood Reporter. The first Thor made $65.7 million while the sequel made $85.7 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter. If tracking is correct, Thor: Ragnarok will beat both of them, which, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is no small feat since many franchises are currently struggling.
The trailer smashed Disney and Marvel Studios’ records back in April. It had more than 136 million views worldwide, which was more than both Beauty and the Beast and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. You can watch the trailer above.
