Wonder Woman might have had an exquisitely long and leggy run in cinemas, however, it seems like Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok has just officially surpassed the DC Extended Universe installment.
Taika Waititi's superhero space buddy movie has just reached $833.7 million at the global box office, making the Thor installment the seventh-highest grossing film of the year. In less than six week's time, the film raked in $301.6 million at the domestic box office, and then $532.5 million worldwide. With a little more time screening in cinemas, we expect a bit more to be added to Ragnarok's overall haul.
That's not the only achievement that Thor: Ragnarok's managed to reach. The film is also currently the highest-grossing Thor movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, outperforming the lifetime hauls of the installments preceding it. The first Thor had a total gross of $449 million, and Thor: The Dark World had a total of $644.5 million – both numbers far from Ragnarok's reach.
Of course, it isn't much of a surprise, considering Ragnarok's bright use of colors and offbeat humor.
Here's Ragnarok's synopsis:
"Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk, his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor's quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization."
Thor: Ragnarok is currently screening in cinemas.
