Here are the theater counts for this weekend’s box office..
THOR: THE DARK WORLD, 3841 THEATERS..
LAST VEGAS adds 17 more ..
ABOUT TIME adds another 1025..
12 YEARS A SLAVE up 734 more..
FREE BIRDS AND ENDERS GAMES stays the same..
Competition is rough.. but with THOR being released on almost 4,000 screens–and being the only film with a wide release this week, it’s a shoe-in for victory in the money game..
Reviews for THOR have been less than superb, though, with CNN saying it’s far from being a great superhero movie, WIRED pointing out some imperfections, and the ATLANTIC says it has lightweight charm..
But even with all that , THOR raked in $7.1 mil with early showings Thursday night, according to DISNEY..
The question really is: Does it have staying power to last two weeks?
