Love & Thunder opens with $143 million at the box office

Thor: Love and Thunder The third-highest box office opening of the year and the highest-grossing ever for a Thor film. The latest Marvel Studios film will bring in $143 million in its first three days at the domestic box office, beating domestic estimates, albeit on the lower end. With the film’s international standing, this is enough to earn back a considerable production budget. Overall a career high start for director Taika Waititi as well as Natalie Portman, who returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Jane Foster, now with the power of Thor (Portman’s previous best was Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith with $108 million, a film in which Waititi forgot she appeared). Opening rank only behind Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘$187.4 million opening and Jurassic World Dominion$145 million in 2022.

Thor: Love and Thunder It has received mixed reviews from critics. ComicBook.com’s Jenna Anderson gave the film a 3.5 out-of-5 score. In her review, she writes:

Thor: Love and Thunder of course there is a change of pace, even if compared Thor: Ragnarok, Phase Four of the MCU, or even the bigger tapestry of superhero adaptations. The film’s heartfelt and reverent core feels perfect for its crop of characters and the current cultural moment, but that perfection is hindered by bizarre structural choices and inconsistent CGI. Sometimes, that shit only adds to the allure of love and need and its incomplete crop of characters, but it keeps the film from becoming another game-changing entry within the MCU. Luckily enough Thor: Love and Thunder manages to charm and delight — especially its stellar ensemble cast — yet still make it a worthwhile encore.

Also this weekend at the box office Minions: The Rise of Gru continues to perform well. The animated film will cross $200 million this weekend. Work is in progress on the complete list of top 10 films at the box office this weekend.
