Thor doesn’t open in the United States of America until this weekend (May 06, 2011), but it has already brought in $93 million from international box office ticket sales.  Though we don’t know the official budget for the movie, it’s estimated Marvel Studios spent $150 million for the picture.  Given a couple more weekends of screen time, Thor will more than likely make its cost back and then some.

    Well having seen the film (Greetings from across the pond) I would say its well worth the watch! easily as good as iron man 2 if not better in my opinion

    Just make sure you stay till after the credits !! as there is a scene in a similar vein to iron man 1 and 2 .

      Really? after the names? I waited until the “travel through the galaxy scene” was over and the credit roll started…Nothing. I hate when they do things like that.

    Saw it when it opened in New Zealand on Thorsday and can say it was Thorsome.

    It was much much better than both the Iron Man’s in my view. (Also in the UK here). It wasn’t a vapid blockbuster action movie, it was a heroic saga and was stronger for it. Whereas Iron Man 2 was littered with titbits building towards the Avengers Thor just made the prospect so much more exciting because the character was great and you are left with an urge to see more Asgardians interacting with nomal folk (or superfolk)
