'Thor' Wins Box Office, Because What Else Would Have?

May 9, 2011


Following a morning of technical delays, here, at last, is your weekend box office:

1. Thor - $66 million. And here I thought we couldn't have a successful film about a muscular, displaced, Aryan, alien warrior in a post-Suburban Commando, post-Masters of the Universe world.

2. Fast Five - $32.5 million--a weekend topped by hammer swinging and car driving, just as Tim Allen always dreamed of.

3. Jumping the Broom - $13.7 million, already a decent return on the film's modest, $6.6 million broom budget.

4. Something Borrowed - $13.2 million. See what happens when you forget to add the Matthew McConaughey?

5. Rio - $8.2 million, because Mom just wanted to see a cute one for Mother's Day, and who are you to insist on Thor?
