Thor: The Dark World Rules The US Box Office
Ender's Game hammered down to fifth place

He may not quite have the pulling power of Iron Man, but Tony Stark’s Avengers pal Thor has certainly demonstrated his box office mettle. Following a successful launch here and in other international markets, Thor: The Dark World has opened in the US to an estimated $86.1 million.

No studio was foolish enough to challenge the God of Thunder for his release date, so the rest of the chart is mostly a shuffling of closely-stacked players. Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa held in second place, earning $11.3 million, ahead of Free Birds, which actually managed to rise up one place to third with $11.2 million, presumably helped by the approach of Thanksgiving, which suits its turkey theme. It swapped places with Last Vegas, which fell to fourth and $11.1 million. Rounding out the top five was last week’s champ Ender’s Game, which appears to be suffering from a combo of new competition from Asgard's top warrior and negative word of mouth, slipping four places and taking home $10.2 million.

Gravity fell one place to sixth, drawing in $8.4 million, while 12 Years A Slave stayed strong in seventh with $6.6 million. Captain Phillips was eighth, taking home $5.8 million, ahead of In Time at ninth ($5.1 million) and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 in 10th place ($2.8 million).

To see a Norse god smack down a tactical genius with a mystical hammer in the full chart listings, head to Box Office Mojo.
