While domestic results for Thor: The Dark World were strong, the overseas results were positively superhuman. In its second weekend, the film generated around $94 million in ticket sales, down just 14 percent from last weekend, when it opened with $109.4 million. That brings total worldwide receipts to $327 million. Today’s (Monday) Wall Street Journal observed that after just two weekends of overseas screenings the movie has grossed 90 percent of the original Thor‘s entire international gross of $268 million. The burgeoning growth of the Chinese movie market was credited with providing a significant contribution to that success. The $19.6 million that Dark World earned in China during its opening weekend was more than the original Thor earned during its entire run in that country.
