Thor: Ragnarok has taken the domestic box office by storm as it helps The Marvel Cinematic Universe to cross the $5 billion mark domestically.
Thor 3, which has opened to rave reviews made a $121 million debut at the box office, thereby making it the highest opening weekend for Thor movies. The MCU has already grossed $17 billion globally. Box Office Mojo reported the MCU at $5,005,500,714 domestically after the release of Thor: Ragnarok. The film is expected to continue to do well at the box office, and that means the collections will increase as well.
However, the film is unlikely to cross the $6 billion domestic mark until the release of Avengers: Infinity War in May 2018. Besides, Thor: Ragnarok will face severe competition from many upcoming films that include DC Extended Universe’s Justice League (to release on November 17, 2017) that will attract the same audience as the threequel.
Thor: Ragnarok is the 17th venture of MCU since 2008 when it first began as a small self-producing firm. The success of their first film Iron Man gave the MCU studios the confidence to venture into more films. It is now rather impossible to imagine Hollywood without MCU.
Thor: Ragnarok – The Story
The film is a sequel to Thor: The Dark World and resumes exactly where we had left – Thor is looking after his homeworld in Asgard. But the destruction of Asgard by Hela, the Goddess of Death (played by Cate Blanchett) is unavoidable. Hela takes over Asgard and also destroys Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer. After being captured, Thor is brought to fight in gladiatorial combat. In order to save Asgard and prevent Ragnarok, the end of the world, Thor recruits his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson).
Thor: Ragnarok has released all across the globe and stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/the Hulk, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Karl Urban as Skurge, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
