"Thor: The Dark World" Barely Beats "The Best Man Holiday" at Box Office

Posted: November 17th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Thor: The Dark World" Barely Beats "The Best Man Holiday" at Box OfficeSubmit Comment
For the second week in a row, "Thor: The Dark World" remained in first place at the domestic box office, barely beating the African-American comedy "The Best Man Holiday," which performed better than anyone expected.

"Thor: The Dark World" grossed another $38.5 million this weekend, bringing its worldwide total to $480 million, already surpassing the $449 million that the first movie grossed in total. The sequel has a 66% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.

"The Best Man Holiday," starring Terrence Howard, Morris Chestnut and Taye Diggs, landed in second place with $30.6 million. The comedy, which as a 65% fresh rating, cost only $17 million to make but went on to earn the fifth-biggest opening ever for an R-rated romantic-comedy. Black movie-goers made up 87% of the audience.

Meanwhile, Alexander Payne's "Nebraska" was released in four theaters, grossing $140,000. That's an impressive $35,000 per theater. The $12 million film, which has a 90% fresh rating. will likely begin expanding next weekend. Payne is the director of such films as "The Descendants," "Sideways," "About Schmidt," and "Election."

Best Man Holiday may have just saved Taye Diggs career.

Haven't had time to see the new Thor but I'm curious.

Just think off all the money Best Man Holiday would have made had a bunch of black people probably not snuck into the theater.

Thor: 38.5 mil

Best Black Holiday: 30.6

Thats a 7.9 mil difference. How is that barely beating 2nd place? Nearly a third more and thats barely? Sell your propaganda somewhere else Alex.

@pornfly

Almost Human wasn't too shabby. They are spending some coin on this show.

OOOOWH they f*ucked up when they said Black movie-goers. And they started out really great with that African-American thing.

And next week Best Man will slump off to 2 mil gross whereas Thor will still pull in eight digits. So what?

The thing that kills me is that Hollywood always acts surprised like,"How did this sh*t happen?!?"
