'Thor: The Dark World' Boosted By 'The Avengers' Success To Score $86 Mil. On Opening Weekend

Bringing in a remarkable $86,109,000 (via Box Office Mojo) in the US alone this weekend, the film has smashed the example set by the first Thor film and continued to show that there is an audience, one as hungry as ever, for the many superhero films being churned out by Hollywood.

There is no denying the film's immediate success, even on the back of some lukewarm reviews, but how much of this success can be attributed to the film as a stand-alone product, rather than a new piece of an already successful pie.

Thor: The Dark World sees the return of Chris Hemsworth in the title role, alongside his onscreen brother Tom Hiddleston as Loki and love interest Natalie Portman as Jane Foster.
