‘Thor: The Dark World’ opened up this past weekend with $86.1 million. That made it the clear winner at the box office like many expected. The same weekend last year saw the release of another movie from a popular franchise. Did that film perform better than the popular Marvel sequel?
The same weekend last year saw the release of the new James Bond film, ‘Skyfall’. For the weekend, the 23rd Bond film opened up with $88.4 million. That amount became the biggest opening ever for the franchise, and it didn’t even need the help of making the movie in 3D to get the higher 3D prices (that is not a shot at 3D, I am just making a point). So for that very weekend over the past two years, Bond is the winner slightly with just a little over $2 million.
The characters in the two films have both been played by its actors for three films so putting ‘Thor: The Dark World’ against ‘Skyfall’ seems even more fair in the name of fun. ‘Thor: The Dark World’ was the third time Chris Hemsworth suited up as Thor. The two other outings were in ‘Thor’ and ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’. Skyfall was the third time Daniel Craig played the legendary role. The two other outings for him were ‘Casino Royale’ and ‘Quantum of Solace’. So in the battle of Thor vs. Bond, 007 takes the victory this time. Doesn’t really matter though, both franchises have been impressive.
