Thor Love and Thunder Amazing run continues in 2nd Week US Box Office
Marvel’s “Thor: Love and Thunder” managed to fend off three new nationwide releases to remain the No. 1 movie in North America.
Though ticket sales for “Thor” cratered in its second weekend, falling by 68% to $46 million from 4,375 theaters.
The latest installment in Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe easily towered over a trio of newcomers: Sony’s literary adaptation “Where the Crawdads Sing,” Paramount’s animated “Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank” and the Focus Features period drama “Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris.”
After 10 days on the big screen, “Love and Thunder” has generated a sizable $232 million at the domestic box office and $497.9 million globally.
For “Thor,” the fourth superhero adventure to spotlight Chris Hemsworth as the Asgardian god with abs that won’t quit, a concerning 68% decline is signaling the movie is not breaking out beyond the comic book empire’s (albeit very big) fanbase.
Though “Love and Thunder” will certainly end its box office run with a tidy sum, it’s not ideal for a film of its size and scope to lose such a significant fraction of its audience so quickly after opening weekend.
It’s one of the biggest second-weekend drops in MCU history next to May’s “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” which tumbled 67% in its sophomore outing. (Disney’s “Strange” sequel film still earned a mighty $411 million domestically).
By comparison, recent Marvel entries were able to fare better with “Eternals” dipping 61% and “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” falling 52%.

Here is day-wise Box Office break-up of Thor Love and Thunder
|Date||Day||US BO Gross||Total US BO Gross|
Thor Love and Thunder Box Office
United States Box Office Gross: $233,271,136
Overseas Gross : $479,700,000
Worldwide Gross: $712,971,136
“Paws of Fury,” on the other hand, failed to match expectations of $10 million.
The family-friendly movie, which took inspiration from the 1974 Mel Brooks film “Blazing Saddles,” is landing at No. 6 with a dismal $6.25 million from 3,475 North American locations.
It’s the rare blemish in 2022 for Paramount, which has otherwise enjoyed a stellar box office run with “The Lost City,” “Scream,” “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” and, of course, “Top Gun: Maverick.” Luckily, Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Animation do not have too much on the line, as acquiring “Paws of Fury” only cost $10 million.
