Thor: The Dark World Still A God At US Box Office
While The Best Man Holiday opens strong in second

Release date shifts have led to two things happening this week at the US box office. Superhero sequel Thor: The Dark World stayed on top, garnering an estimated $38.4 million, and fellow follow-up (albeit to a film that was released in 1999!) The Best Man Holiday opened strongly against it, taking home a healthy $30.5 million.

Besides the top two, Last Vegas got a winning hand, edging back up one place for third and $8.8 million, trading places with ‘toon Free Birds, which slipped to fourth with $8.3 million. Rounding out the top five was Bad Grandpa, which, with $7.6 million this weekend, is on the way to make more than $100 million in the US alone.

Gravity floated in place at sixth, earning $6.3 million. Ender’s Game fell to seventh with $6.2 million and 12 Years A Slave dropped one place to eighth, taking in $4.7 million. Captain Phillips was ninth, making $4.5 million and About Time slipped one place to 10th, earning $3.4 million.

To see a heart-warming reunion interrupted by a thunder god with a hammer in the full chart listings, head to Box Office Mojo.
