Box Office: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ thunders into second week
HOLLYWOOD - Showing plenty of staying power, “Thor: Ragnarok” is dominating the box office in its second week.
The third Thor movie posted the 29th highest second weekend of all time and the fifth best of 2017. It has reversed a box office slump that persisted through October and left 2017’s overall domestic movie-going down 5% from last year.
“Daddy’s Home 2” is performing at the high end of recent forecasts.
“Murder on the Orient Express” has also launched above expectations. Kenneth Branagh stars as detective Hercule Poirot in the latest adaptation of Agatha Christie’s story of a murder mystery on a luxury train in the 1930s.
STXfilms’ “A Bad Moms Christmas” finished fourth in its second week.
The third week of “Jigsaw” finished fifth, followed by “Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween”. “Geostrom” followed in seventh place, Variety reported.
