As reported by TheWrap, director Taika Waititi's take on the Thor franchise has raked in a massive $56.6 million after its second weekend in North American theaters, dropping only 54% from its $122.7 million opening. It's clear that refreshing the character of Thor, as well as bringing in Mark Ruffalo's Hulk and Cate Blanchett's Hela, was enough to breathe new life into the series. Many have noted that Marvel Studios has made Thor more like the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, which is a box office trojan in its own right.

The ten-day opening for the movie domestically now tallies up to $212 million -- already beating Thor's total of $181 million and Thor: The Dark World's total of $206.3 million. The total worldwide gross for Thor: Ragnarok is currently sitting at $650 million, which is monstrous in comparison to the lifetime gross of Thor ($449.3 million) and The Dark World ($644.5 million).
