After three weeks of international release, “Thor: The Dark World” has passed $500 in total global box office, as noted by The Hollywood Reporter. That makes it the fifth Marvel Studios film to hit that mark, putting it ahead of “The Incredible Hulk” ($263M worldwide), “Captain America: The First Avenger” ($371M) and the original “Thor.” ($449M). Additionally, it’s the first Marvel Studios film to gross more than $500 worldwide and not feature Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man — whose last two outings, this past summer’s “Iron Man 3” and 2012’s “The Avengers,” grossed more than $1 billion each worldwide.
According to THR’s numbers, “Thor: The Dark World” has performed particularly well in China ($46.1M), Russia ($33.6M), the United Kingdom ($28.3M), Brazil ($22.2M) and Mexico ($20.9M). The film had a reported production budget of $170 million.
“Thor: The Dark World” opened domestically on Nov. 8, and according to Box Office Mojo is currently at a $152 million stateside total. The film faces a major hurdle this weekend, with “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” opening in the United States and multiple significant foreign markets.
