Thor Is the Number One Movie at the Box Office

Box Office: Thor Brings Down the Hammer on the Competition

Don't underestimate the strength of Thor! The action film starring Chris Hemsworth muscled its way to the top of the box office in its opening weekend with a haul of $66 million. It beat last week's winner Fast Five, which still zoomed into the second spot with $32.5 million.

The new wedding-themed romantic comedies followed; Jumping the Broom came in third place with 13.7 million, while the Ginnifer Goodwin/Kate Hudson flick Something Borrowed got the fourth spot with $13.2 million. The animated family film Rio rounded out the top five with $8.2 million.
