In its third weekend in release, Thor: Ragnarok took in an additional $21 million at the domestic box office, bringing its total to $247.4 million stateside. Internationally, he film has already earned $490.7 million helping to push Thor: Ragnarok past $700 million to an impressive $738.1 million. This marks the first Thor film to reach that milestone, with the first film finishing its run at $449 million, and Thor: The Dark World ending with just $644 million.

Whether or not the film will be able to pass $300 million domestically remains to be seen. While Justice League may have underperformed at the box office this weekend, it could very well prove to have legs over the Thanksgiving holiday -- something Warner Bros. executives are counting on -- and prove to be competition for the God of Thunder. Even still, Ragnarok should easily hit $800 million worldwide, making it the third consecutive Marvel Studios film to do just that in 2017 after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming.
